FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Hanson Search expands global recruitment operation with new Asia offering in Hong Kong

Hong Kong: Following success in the Middle East and increased demand from clients for additional recruitment support in Asia, award-winning international recruitment agency Hanson Search is launching in Hong Kong this September.

Hanson Search Hong Kong will work closely with the Middle East and European offices, covering the communications recruitment offering in Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Singapore. They will work across both agency and in-house teams in Asia, with an initial focus on helping to place senior-level corporate and financial communications professionals.

Hanson Search Hong Kong will also support international companies with ambitions to launch in Asia, advising on team structure, hiring strategy, and the practicalities around overall set up.

Commenting on the expansion, Katie Simpson, MD of Corporate, Financial and Technology, said, “With our existing international corporate and financial communications reputation, we believe we can add real insight and value to the growing Asian communications market. With an already strong network in the region, our candidates and clients have been requesting we move into Asia for some time and we feel Hong Kong is the perfect place to launch this expansion.” Adding to this, Hanson Search CEO Alice Weightman said, “As an international executive search agency, we have seen a huge rise in applicants looking for overseas opportunities over the last twelve months. 25% of our candidates indicate global opportunities as a key selling point when conducting their job search.”

Sam Corn, who will be leading the new Hong Kong offering, explained further, “Our clients in Asia have long requested a closer relationship with us, so Hong Kong is a no-brainer for Hanson Search. I am excited to provide boots on the ground support, for clients and candidates, and to establish further relationships as a truly global talent partner.”
