Recruitment company Frontline Recruitment Group has been purchased by US-based Express Employment Professionals. Many retailers will be aware of Frontline through its Frontline Retail arm.
Frontline Recruitment Group also has hospitality, health, education, construction, IT and digital arms, with a total of 31 locations across Australia and three in New Zealand.
“We are very excited to combine forces with Express Employment Professionals,” says Peter Davis, managing director of Frontline Recruitment Group. “The strong values alignment between our businesses will allow both Frontline and Express to each benefit from the expertise of the other.”
Similar to Express franchise owners, Frontline franchisees will maintain ownership of their individual offices following this acquisition, continuing to exist under the Frontline brand presence within their respective markets.
Express has signaled that the purchase of Frontline will allow it to also expand and market its temporary staffing franchise concept across Australia and New Zealand. These franchise locations will exist under the Express brand.
“By purchasing Frontline Recruitment Group and joining forces, Express is poised to expand our expertise as leaders in temporary staffing to offer this type of employment to job seekers across Australia and New Zealand,” said Bill Stoller, CEO of Express. “This acquisition also allows us to leverage Frontline’s 25-years of experience as leaders in direct hire staffing, allowing Express to grow our core and franchise locations across the United States, Canada, South Africa and beyond.”
