Spring Professional has launched in Australia with headquarters in Melbourne. The Adecco Group brand has an exclusive focus on the recruitment of middle to senior level management and specialists in many different sectors. In Australia, the company will predominantly focus on the finance and accounting, technology and digital, engineering and procurement and supply chains sectors.
“At Adecco, we operate a network of brands, which allow us to reach a large client network across a number of industries and more importantly service our client needs with a specialised approach.” commented Givile Mockute, CFO. “Our strategic priority is to increase our geographical scope and become the clear leader within the permanent placement market, and we’re doing this by investing in the country with the launch of the Spring Professional brand. The initial investment will be in Melbourne with other state capital cities to follow next year.”
According to Adecco, the introduction of Spring Professional will allow the company to increase its focus on permanent staffing solutions for organisations seeking skilled labour in major Australian cities, where the white-collar job market continues to experience unprecedented growth post-mining boom.
“Australia’s transition into a knowledge-driven economy has created a knock-on effect on the skills required from the workforce of today and the future. In particular, it is generating significant demand for skilled white-collar professionals in Melbourne and Sydney,” said Richard Dunlop, managing director for Spring Professional in Australia. “Spring Professional’s entry into the Australian market is a key pillar of our overall expansion strategy, allowing us to tap into the opportunities brought about by rapidly evolving skills demands.
“The ongoing technology disruptions in almost all industries will not only drive the demand for talent with multiple technical skillsets, but also those that can effectively combine technical skills with soft skills,” Dunlop continued. “Finance with programming skills, marketing with digital skills, as well as experience working across multiple geographies, are some examples of the multiple skillsets we can expect more of.”
