Xpand, Australia and Asia Pacific’s award winning Digital, Technology, Media & Communications Talent Agency, is pleased to announce the opening of its first London office.
As part of the Rubicor Group - one of the largest, publicly listed recruitment groups in Australasia - Xpand has been a leading recruitment consultancy within the Digital, Technology, Media and Communications space since launching in Australia in 1993. Following substantial growth in the local market, Xpand opened a Singapore operation in 2006 and have recently increased their footprint across Asia in line with Rubicor’s strategic objective of international expansion in FY14.
In a step designed to extend the Group’s global presence, Xpand has opened a London based operation, integrating with Rumour Works, a UK born freelance specialist PR, Communications & Digital marketing agency and will operate under the Xpand brand.
Having developed a well-respected brand across Australasia for the last two decades, and given the significant growth experienced in this space, Xpand made the strategic move to focus attention and efforts on London, where the PR and Communication market is growing - particularly the convergence of Digital and traditional PR, which has been Xpand’s core focus since 2001.
Ian Tyler, Group Managing Director of Xpand stated “November, 2013 marks a new chapter on our journey. It’s important that we continue our growth story and we do that with regional expansion; of which our next venture is into London, UK, a market we are very familiar with given the demographic of existing clients and candidates and colleague community, and will allow our business to offer greater global opportunities and access to talent in a highly competitive, candidate short space”.
To succeed in this new venture, we have been able to retain the talents of the unique leader in Katie Austin and Debby Clark, previously from Xchangeteam. We are excited to work with such respected industry specialists, as we execute our growth strategy across the UK market and beyond.
“This will allow us to increase and broaden our networks to a highly mobile antipodean candidate pool, and allows us to freely share data, resources and expertise to improve our ability to provide our clients and talent with an unparalleled Digital, Media & Communications consulting service.” Commented Ian Tyler.
Xpand recently occupied premises in Shoreditch, London which further cements its position in the heart of the Digital, Technology and Communication community.
