Robert Walters, a specialist professional recruitment consultancy, has expanded its Asian network with an office in Taipei, Taiwan. After launching the Vietnam and Indonesia offices, Robert Walters’ new operations in Taiwan continued the group’s growth strategy in Asia, in response to an increasing demand from both clients and candidates for specialist and international recruitment services in the Taiwanese market.
“As an international recruitment firm, we have the ability to tap into a global database of candidates who are looking to return to Taiwan as well as foreign talent who will consider a posting there,” said Mark Ellwood, managing director, Asia. “We have been requested on many occasions to service the Taiwanese market from overseas but now that we have opened a local office, we will be able to provide a more dedicated service to a wider network of clients and candidates. We are excited to be opening another office in Asia as we look to build our Asian network of offices, which is the fastest growing region of the group.”
