Spencer Ogden expands Perth office
Spencer Ogden has doubled the size of its Perth office and has relocated to London House, Part Level 6, 216 St Georges Terrace, Western Australia (WA) 6000. The company, whose global headquarters reside in London, has seen tremendous growth in the Australian market since the Perth office commenced in 2013.
James Holden, Australia country manager for Spencer Ogden, said, “Spencer Ogden Perth entered the WA market during a downturn in the local industry, however, our ability to invest whilst others chose to consolidate consequently afforded us more opportunities to win business in a highly competitive space.”
Over the past five years, the office has built a $12m annual turnover business and successfully placed over 500 candidates.
Tom Reid, regional director of Asia Pacific at Spencer Ogden, commented, “The Perth team have worked exceptionally hard to deliver sustainable growth in our core markets and expanding here ensures that James can continue to support our clients recruitment needs and build on the success of the existing team.
“Perth is a key strategic location in the Energy, Engineering and Infrastructure environment and will form the foundation of our growth within Australia and New Zealand.”
The Perth office has a collaborative environment that is reflective of Perth’s local culture, from surfboard racks, astro-turf flooring, beach style furniture and graffiti lockers. This fun open-concept office is a place where staff can work with wireless headsets, mobile laptop stations, play table tennis or ride a bike.
Holden added, "Spencer Ogden chose London House as the location for our new office because we felt the buildings red brick architecture and classical lobby fit out that would fit our trademark style.”
