Dutch recruiter Randstad and the Centro Cultural Banco do Brazil (CCBB) in Rio de Janeiro have signed a one-year recruitment contract worth R$ 4 million (approximately €1.5 million), the staffing company reported on Thursday.
The CCBB is a cultural organisation of Banco do Brasil (the largest bank in the country by assets) and is responsible for running and maintaining museums in Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, and São Paulo.
José Mário Tagliaferri, business manager at Randstad Brazil, said that the company will be responsible for providing professionals to the CCBB in Rio de Janeiro.
“Winning this contract is very representative for Randstad, making a strategic partnership with the largest cultural centre of the country, maintained by Banco do Brazil, one of the strongest financial institutions in Latin America,” said Mr Tagliaferri.
Randstad appears to be on an expansion drive in Brazil where it recently won a US$ 6.5 million contract with energy company Petrobas in July this year. Brazil remains an attractive staffing market and Randstad achieved double-digit growth in the second quarter of the year.
The firm has 20 years’ experience in Brazil through a former joint venture with RH International, which the company bought out in 2011.
