Hunter-grown firm to launch UK office

Leading recruitment agency and two times Hunter Business Awards finalist GWG Partners recently announced its international expansion with the opening of a UK office.
GWG Director Chris Wallis has relocated from the Hunter with his family to open the new office servicing Scotland and northern UK in July.
Established in Newcastle in 2011, GWG Managing Director James Grierson said the agency had been looking for the right time to expand into the global market, and plans to replicate the success achieved locally in the UK.
“GWG has gone from strength to strength here in the Newcastle and Hunter, successfully challenging traditional multinationals and achieving over 50% growth in the last year” said James.
“The Hunter Region will always remain our headquarters and the expanding local team, led by Julie Gearie, will continue to grow. “The new office will allow us to enter the UK market, whilst also strengthening our existing operations by extending our reach and capacity for current clients.
“Our mission is to help people to do what they love everyday; it’s a philosophy that really sets us apart from others in the industry. Taking a candidate-centric approach delivers the best possible outcomes from a client perspective, as well as for the candidate, and our expansion into the UK will see us take this successful model to a global audience.”
