Asia – the Powerhouse for Pure Search in 2014

The Pure Search offices in Hong Kong and Singapore proved to be a powerful source of growth and development for the business through 2014.
 
Net revenue across the two offices grew by over 50% to a sterling adjusted £5.4m, whilst staff numbers rose by just 17%.
 
The market in Asia, particularly in Financial Services around Compliance and Regulatory has undoubtedly been positive, but the growth achieved reflects the strength of Pure Search’s global platform, and the quality of the Asia team put together by regional MDs Liam Richardson in Hong Kong and Andrew Wallace in Singapore.
 
Pure Search’s blue chip client base across the three main market sectors, Financial Services, Commerce and Industry and Professional Practice, produced several first time mandates in Asia during 2014. Meanwhile the depth of our client relationships stimulated the launch of a new Human Resources practice area, led out of Hong Kong by Elaine Khoo.
 
According to Liam Richardson, it all adds up to a great working environment, in which top recruiters can truly flourish. Joining Pure Search in Asia could be just the accelerator that a really good career needs.
