On 28th January, Source Technology will be opening its Los Angeles office as part of a continued international expansion programme.
Director Jack Marsh, formerly head of the Technical Engineering Division, has relocated from London to lead the venture.
This is an exciting development, driven by demand from our increasingly international client base, a trial period of working in the US from our UK base and market research proving favourable.
“Many of our clients were asking us to extend our services from their UK and European operations to the USA, so we already had a warm introduction to the market. Over the last few months, we’ve been building candidate talent pools and existing client relationships, as well as introducing our services to new clients.” Said Marsh.
Los Angeles was chosen as the base for the US arm because of its proximity to the tech hub of Silicon Valley, good transport links with other key regions and a strong existing recruitment market to feed the internal recruitment need.
“In Jack, we have a tremendous leader with the capability to make this venture a huge success. One of his key priorities over the first six months will be to aggressively hire into the LA office. A quick intake of quality staff will ensure we can deliver existing commitments to clients and hit our growth targets.” Commented Lawrence Hargreaves, Co-Founder & Director.
The initial offer will centre on contract and permanent hiring into Technical Engineering and Cyber Security, both of which are experiencing high demand. As new staff come on board, new verticles will be opened up, ensuring that Source Technology can provide a comprehensive service across all key tech areas.
Although based in LA, Jack will be focusing on delivering to clients across the country, particularly in California, New York, Seattle, Texas and Boston. Once the LA office is established, the business may consider opening in other locations.
Gavin Tew, co-Founder, said “This is an extremely exciting period in our growth. To date, we have enjoyed considerable success in the UK and our European markets including Switzerland, the Nordics, Germany and the Benelux countries. We are incredibly proud to be launching our 3rd office just over 3 years since we founded the business, and are positive that, under Jack’s stewardship, it will be a huge success.”
This is the first of many new, exciting developments for Source, watch this space!
