Antal's office network now covers 32 countries and has placed talent with clients in over 75. The company is a leader in some of the fastest growing markets around the world such as China, Eastern Europe, Africa and also India, where the business is currently poised to take its coverage from 23 to 30 offices.
Antal’s global franchise programme has attracted business owners from a wide range of professional backgrounds to invest in its training, support, brand, systems and methodologies. These licensed business owners bring with them a wealth of experience and knowledge from long careers spent on the client side, where they have built a unique perspective on how to tailor the best recruitment solutions in any given market, geography or sector.
Doug Bugie – co-founder of global recruitment franchisor, Humana Group, and now CEO of Antal's franchising arm, Antal Networks, said: "The calibre and experience of people who have chosen to partner with us in order to build their own recruitment businesses under our brand and with our support is astounding. Their in-depth knowledge combined with our extensive international reach is rarely available to clients and candidates elsewhere. For franchisees, my 30 years experience in this field tells me that there simply isn't a better partner to be in business with."
Tony Goodwin the Chairman and CEO who initially set up the firm said. "We are now a multi-brand, multi sector and multi-national specialist recruiter of choice for our clients. I am delighted to reach this milestone and even more delighted that our new colleagues have, in less than a week, already engaged with our network across the world to share assignments and place talent for their clients. I can see the day not too far off when we have a global network in excess of 200 fully operational units. There are so many places we can go, and, with the combination of a highly experienced head office team supporting dedicated business owners in the field, I believe we can confidently expect true dominance in all of our target markets.”
