Eutopia Continues International Growth With New South Africa Office
ELSTREE, England, March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
Talent acquisition firm Eutopia continues its international expansion with the launch
of its Africa office next month, following the astonishing success of its UAE Dubai
practice. Client demand, and a formidable growth trajectory in the region across
technology/telecoms markets, makes the decision to launch in South Africa a key growth
strategy for Eutopia.
The new South Africa team will be building on Eutopia’s reputation as previous winner
of numerous awards, including Recruiter’s ‘Best International Recruitment Firm’ and their
prestigious Gold Award.
Eutopia is proud of its CSR initiatives in Africa, including its support of the Mara
Foundation, one of Africa’s largest non-profit social enterprises promoting emerging
African entrepreneurs. Darren Franks, Managing Director Eutopia MEA, is one of the mentors
within its Mentorship Programme. Eutopia also sponsors JENGA CDO, having funded numerous
health, education and infrastructure community projects in Uganda. With such strong
commercial and charity connections to Africa, the launch of the new office demonstrates
Eutopia’s commitment to the region.
Darren will lead a highly qualified team with over 25 years’ experience in the
Sub-Saharan Africa market. Based in Cape Town, the team opted for this thriving ‘Silicon
Africa’ hub, due to its growing reputation as a continental technology centre. As Darren
explains, it is about thinking global and acting local: “Cape Town is a booming city for
high tech and emerging technologies, so it made sense to base the new office there.
Covering both the domestic and African markets across the region, we will be offering both
permanent recruitment and contract services to our clients and candidates. The new office
will provide us with a valuable springboard to the African continent and offer a more
local service to our key clients.”
Craig Coverman, Global CEO at Eutopia, sees the development as a continuation of
strong EMEA performance: “We’ve achieved enormous success in both the UK and Dubai over
the past 11 years. We always planned to open an office in Africa as 35%+ of our business
comes from the African market but there was, until now, no physical footprint there. South
Africa is an excellent market and gives the business good access to the rest of Africa. We
look forward to making the new office as successful as our Dubai office.”
