Gi Group acquires Grafton Recruitment Europe

International HR services provider Gi Group has acquired Grafton Recruitment Europe in a move that Gi Group says will strengthen its position in the provision of search and selection across Central Europe.

Grafton Recruitment has 26 offices across the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary, and employs more than 350 staff. In 2017 it placed 9,000 candidates into jobs. 

Commenting on the deal, Stefano Colli-Lanzi, CEO of Gi Group, says: “Being a global provider as we have become in the last 20 years, and in the context of a market which is continuously more candidate-driven, the experience of Grafton allows us to further amplify the HR solutions portfolio and, therefore, our capacity to create value for the development of the market and to better meet the increasingly complex needs of clients and candidates.”

In July, the Ireland arm of Grafton Recruitment was acquired by Staffline Group.
