Volcanic seeks investment to expand following China trade mission

Volcanic has revealed it is in talks to secure the necessary investment to allow it to recruit 70 new staff at its UK head office in Stockport.

The recruitment tech company says the move follows a successful international trade mission to China, accompanying the Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SSE). The aim was to encourage the sharing of ideas around technology and business growth, and introduce UK technology businesses to potential investors in the region.
  
Commenting on the trade mission, Volcanic CEO Robert Wilde, who attended the trade mission with operations director Ben Easterbrook, said: “Small organisations looking to grow need to think globally. There are huge opportunities for overseas investment, especially in our post-Brexit climate, as the UK government is looking to establish stronger trading links with Asia.”
 
The group, which already has operations in Spain, Malaysia and Australia, adds it is also planning on further international expansion. 

The China trade mission took place from 9-18 December 2017 and was organised by the London Stock Exchange ELITE. Delegates met with representatives of international business and investors at the SSE, the Qianhai Free Trade Zone, Shenzhen, and the Zhongguancun Science Park, Beijing.
