Awarding winning recruitment agency people2people launches in the UK

Mark Smith, Managing Director at people2people Recruitment Group

TransTasman recruitment agency people2people Recruitment has announced the firm’s expansion into the UK. The multiple awardwinning agency specialised in the white collar space will now service global companies and provide talent across ANZ and the UK.

How will the UK expansion solve talent shortages?

With boarders reopened, the agency expansion will help to fill much needed gaps and talent
shortages across the three countries. Mark Smith, people2people Recruitment Group Managing Director says, “Demand for international placements and a lack of local talent reported across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom have driven the expansion.”

“We work with a number of business partners who have asked for us to consider talent from markets beyond ANZ and with the recently free trade agreement the UK was the logical pick.”

The opening of the new branch, people2people Recruitment UK, will be led by Managing Director Liz Jones with a local team on the ground. Liz Jones adds, “With the new free trade agreement between Australia and the UK, we now have the opportunity to provide a global talent solution by expanding our operations into the UK, which I am very excited to lead.”

“Over the past two years, global placements came to a standstill due to the COVID pandemic, as we emerge and learn to live and adapt our business models post COVID, the opportunities to share talent pools across the three countries was a natural next step for us.”

“This expansion will allow Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom to not only provide
opportunities for talent seeking to broaden their skillset into these regions, but allow our clients in the UK tap into international talent, fast, through our global databases and teams.”
