Elitegroup opens first international office in Paris
UK-based IT recruitment firm Elitegroup has opened its first international office in Paris.
The decision to open a Paris office is a strategic move that will bring Elitegroup in closer proximity to its growing list of SME and enterprise clients in France. The new office will be based in the 7th district of Paris to ensure it is well located to support these key clients.
James Caan CBE, who invested in the business as part of his Recruitment Entrepreneur portfolio, said of the growth, “From day one I was impressed with Elitegroup’s long-term plan and expert knowledge of their market. They have delivered and exceeded client expectations year on year, ensuring the rapid growth needed to successfully progress. Few businesses scale this quickly and it’s a credit to both Laurent and his team this next step has been achieved”.
Senior consultants Ian Gresland who joined Elitegroup mid-2016 and Samir Harrad who came onboard in January will head up the new Paris base. They are set to grow the new office significantly by hiring senior IT recruitment consultants to build on the current success from the existing London and Newcastle offices.
