Moving on up in Austin, USA!
After little over a year in America, we’re moving to new heights…literally! We’re taking over new office space at 500 West, 2nd Street. This building is known as one of the most prestigious new builds in downtown Austin! We’ll be rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s most elite tech companies.
We’ve been working hard to support Austin’s rapidly growing tech scene and over the last 18 months, we’ve become a trusted partner to companies in Austin and Dallas. We help both established companies and start-ups grow by identifying and attracting the best technical talent from across the US. The technology boom is generating a significant demand for the top technical talent, which has famously been difficult to find but that’s where our services come in.
Our team has grown rapidly in the last year and this move will provide the space we need for the next phase of growth. Pete Hart, our CEO, says “I am so proud of our team in Austin and the impressive achievements each one of them has contributed. It is extremely exciting to now be in a position where we can confidently pursue our expansion plans in Austin and across other parts of the USA.”
From this new base, we’ll be closer to our key clients, able to provide better service and will give the team room to grow. It will also enable us to invest in more talent to meet the growing industry demands and to continue to expand to more cities across America.
James Lafferty, USA Business Manager, shares his thoughts on the move, “My priority is creating a great working environment for our growing team. Ensuring each one of our employees is able to achieve their potential and is continuously provided with new opportunities underpins our ability to grow the business. I’m especially excited to be moving into this new building, with the purpose built gym, great views and modern design. It’ll be a fantastic place to welcome the new starters we will be seeking throughout the year. This move provides us with a platform to continue our growth and presence within the US market.”
We don’t shy away from the opportunity to contribute to the continuous improvement of the city. “We quickly got involved in the community by joining the Chamber of Commerce and networking with other business leaders to see how we can partner with them not only in business but in social and local economic matters as well. We are dedicated to growing our business, providing an amazing service to our clients & candidates as well as doing our part to continue to help Austin, Texas grow and maintain its title as one of the best cities in America.” – Douglas Branham, People Operations Manager.
We’re celebrating becoming a truly international business this year with 46% of our business has been contributed by our Munich, Berlin, Austin and Dallas markets over the last 12 months outside of our Reading HQ.
This great vision of growth depends on having great people in our business. If you’re interested in joining our growing team, then get to know us a bit better through our Hunted page and take a look at some of our current vacancies.
