Hong Kong's Best New Recruitment Agency

24th Apr 2017 'Cilla Arnold


We are very proud to have been named Hong Kong's Best New Recruitment Agency at the Asia Recruitment Awards 2017!

This follows the Singapore Asia Recruitment Awards where Xpand won the Overall Grand Winner for Agency prize.

Judged by over 75 of the most respected HR directors in Asia from companies such as Adidas, HSBC, Microsoft, and Starbucks, the Asia Recruitment Awards is the only regional awards programme in Asia Pacific designed to recognise and celebrate excellence in recruitment and talent acquisition.

Having started the Hong Kong office just 2 years ago from my apartment, I am immensely proud of the Xpanders for achieving Gold for Best New Recruitment Agency. In the space of 2 years we have grown and evolved, moved office several times and partner with some of the coolest brands around, while having a lot of fun at the same time. Matthieu Pirouelle, Country Manager. 

As a specialist Digital, Technology, Media, Sales & Marketing agency we think and act a little differently to traditional agencies, and focus heavily on providing a positive candidate experience.

The commitment to an excellent candidate experience is something that many agencies and in-house recruiters are improving on year on year. As Australia's first agency to introduce a Candidate First model, we are delighted with this recognition in Hong Kong where we have been operating for just 2 years. Joanna Cockle, Marketing Manager.
