Michael Page continues expansion in Greater China
HONG KONG: Following 10 years of operation on mainland China, Michael Page, part of global recruitment firm PageGroup, has recently invested in significant additional office capacity in Shanghai and Guangzhou to accommodate its growth and enable continued expansion.
The Michael Page Puxi team has relocated to a new, larger office accommodating 130 people – an additional 40 people than the previous space. The business has also secured a new spacious office in Guangzhou and as this team grows, the business strategy is to increase the offering scope and extend into new disciplines.
The Michael Page Beijing and Shenzhen offices opened in 2008 and these businesses have been growing strongly, while the Guangzhou and Suzhou businesses have also been strengthening along with the two Shanghai offices.
With around 400 Michael Page employees across China, the business remains focused on its strategy of organic growth and reinforcing its position as the leading recruitment firm in Greater China. Its progressive and market-leading management team comprised of native Chinese directors, regional directors and managing directors, all with outstanding local industry knowledge, ensures the business is best placed to understand the recruitment needs of both Chinese and multinational organisations within Greater China, as well as the jobseeker perspective.
“While Michael Page has grown to be the largest professional recruitment firm in China, we see enormous scope for further growth,” said Richard King, managing director for north and eastern China. “We are committed to investing in the region and providing our clients and candidates with an extensive recruitment offering delivered by our exceptional consulting staff.”
Michael Page now has a total of six offices on the mainland.
“Greater China continues to present enormous potential for the Michael Page brand and the region is hugely diverse from a business and cultural perspective,” said Andy Bentote, senior managing director for Hong Kong and southern China. “We have ambitious plans in place to expand by following our consistent strategy of organic growth across Greater China, which will involve further strengthening our already market leading disciplines as well as the launch of new disciplines and locations.”
