WRS launches three new divisions
Worldwide Recruitment Solutions (WRS) Ltd has launched three new divisions this month as part of its wider diversification and growth plan: Commodities & trading, manufacturing & engineering and chemicals.
The company says these new areas complement its existing experience within oil & gas, mining and associated energy markets in which it has worked for over 15 years.
Initially the new divisions are based out of WRS’ UK head office in Altrincham, Cheshire, but the coming months will see key hires in the company’s Singapore and Abu Dhabi hub offices to grow these new divisions within the APAC and Middle East regions. To support this growth, WRS Singapore has recently moved into larger premises within the AXA Tower.
The new vertical markets are being spearheaded by divisional managers - Jordan Randall, Martin Willemsen and Paris Alderman - each experienced within their specific industries and bringing in-depth market knowledge, business development and sales expertise to the business.
Mark Brown (pictured), chief executive officer of WRS globally, commented, “We have long considered the possibility of moving into new marketplaces and careful consideration over a number of months has identified opportunities within these areas. As part of our commitment to serving our clients we recognise that many of the business with which we work are increasingly multi-disciplinary and as such we can offer a well-rounded service to these new and complementary marketplaces.
“The network contacts we have worked hard to build over the past 15 years lend a wide array of transferable skills to associated commercial and technical marketplaces within other areas of engineering and industry, which is why the commodities, chemicals and manufacturing industries were deemed a perfect fit for WRS.
“We will support the 3 appointed key leads and their respective teams through this transitional period and the whole business is behind them. Early indicators show that this was a great move for the business, and the management team share my excitement for the future of these new divisions.”
