Maven Partners, a leading independent recruitment firm specialising in tax, finance and financial advisory recruitment has established its offshore division in Jersey. The office opens this month and will be the hub for all offshore senior recruitment activity conducted by the Maven Partners business across Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Cayman, Bermuda, Gibraltar and the British Virgin Islands.
Maven Partners Offshore has ambitious growth targets and has been granted a license to employ 12 locally qualified ‘Mavens’ over the next three years. The move to establish an offshore HQ in Jersey has been facilitated by the team at Locate Jersey.
‘The Maven Partners business services clients across the UK, Europe and Asia Pacific with offices in both the UK and Australia. Expanding our expertise and specialist research approach into the offshore market is a key part of our expansion plans,’ explains Sarah Garrood, Partner of Maven Partners Offshore. ‘We spent some time considering the best location to base our offshore HQ. Jersey is well placed to enable us to service the offshore network and has an excellent infrastructure which is vital to our continued growth plans.’
Recognising that the Jersey market is already well served with recruitment businesses, Maven Partners Offshore are confident that their international outlook, research expertise and reach will provide a welcome alternative. As Ms Garrood continues to explain:
‘At Maven Partners we are holders and seekers of knowledge which has been gained through experience, dedication and perseverance in international taxation and financial recruitment. Our dedicated research function sets us apart from our competition and our global reach means we are sourcing from a far greater pool in order to find the right people. This can only benefit local companies as they seek to employ the very best talent.’
Maven Partners is renowned for its in-house research team with multiple language capabilities. Since inception, the company has conducted business in fluent English, French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Norwegian and Swedish. Heavy investment in this research function enables the company to find the best candidates – which has proven especially effective in the difficult recruitment conditions of the past few years.
Maven Partners Offshore will be headed up by recruitment specialist, Sarah Garrood.
