RHL launches Sydney office
RHL (Recruitment Holdings Limited), a joint venture with the HR GO Group of companies, has launched RHL Australasia to serve clients and candidates in Australia, New Zealand and the wider Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
The enterprise has launched from an office in Sydney. It also sources skilled UK-based candidates looking for new opportunities in the region and Australian citizens who wish to work in the UK and other English-speaking countries.
Paul Surridge, formerly operations director tor RHL UK, is heading the operation as managing director. Born in Sydney, he benefits from dual British and Australian nationality. He has returned to Australia following 28 years with RHL in Ashford, Kent, and takes with him a wealth of global recruitment experience.
Surridge (pictured right with wife Ilse, the business' business support executive) said, “We’ve made an encouraging start in Sydney. I am still talking regularly to the team in Ashford and we are recommending candidates to each other.
“We know it’s a buoyant area for growth, but there is only so much you can do with a nine-hour time difference and 10,500 miles between us.
“There is a global shortage of talent and it’s a candidate-driven market.
“We know the geography and culture. We’re a start-up but I’m confident this is going to work well. It’s a wonderful opportunity and we’re giving it our best shot.”
