Global recruiter Salt Recruitment Group acquires Xpand

10th Oct 2019 Joanna Cockle


We are proud to announce that global digital recruiter, Salt, has acquired Xpand in order to further increase its global talent services. Salt has an existing 200+ headcount across eight countries and we are super excited to be a part of the Salt family!
Salt specialises in building teams to support an organisation’s digital transformation and has worked with over 500 global companies in the last year alone, making placements with high-profile brands including Amazon, Discovery and IBM, as well as VC backed scale-ups. The company has numerous global awards under its belt and was ranked 14th in the 2019 The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200.

Paul Schiavo, Executive Chairman at Salt, commented on the acquisition:

“This is an exciting new chapter for Salt as we continue our journey to be the best global digital recruiter. There’s an international shortage of talent in this arena that means employers need worldwide support to attract the best digital skills. Investments such as this ensure we have the talented recruiters we need based around the globe to best support our clients, candidates, and contractors.

Adding the knowledge from Xpand’s Sydney, Melbourne, Hong Kong, and Singapore bases to our own expertise will further ensure we’re driving truly global talent strategies for our clients. I’d like to personally welcome our new employees to the Salt family – we’re all looking forward to having them join our vision to create futures for our customers globally that will positively impact the digital economy.”

As we are becoming part of the Salt Group, the teams at Xpand will continue to deliver great service to our candidates and clients. We value the relationships we have built over the years and look forward to continuing to work with you.
