FIRCROFT EXPANDS WITH JV IN SAUDI ARABIA

Fircroft, the Natural Resource and Engineering workforce solutions firm, this week expanded into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia via a significant investment into an established Saudi based consultancy business.

The joint venture with Seder Group, one of the Kingdom’s premier corporate groups, sees Fircroft’s continued growth in the Middle East, following the opening of an office in Oman in 2014. The consultancy is operating in Saudi Arabia and The UAE and takes the number of offices in the Middle East to six, with over 600 employees and consultants delivering several key client projects in the region.

Johnathan Johnson, CEO of Fircroft said: “By investing in this joint venture we are gaining substantial expertise, knowledge and experience in the Kingdom which is invaluable as we look to continue to service our valued clients in this strategically important oil producing country”. 

“Over the past 12 months we have been running several global recruitment campaigns outside of the region for our Saudi based technical engineering clients, supporting the permanent recruitment and mobilisation of over 300 workers into the country. Our investment in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia highlights that our continuing appetite for growth remains healthy, even with the prevailing market sentiment over the current oil price level.”
