Bullhorn opens new office in Sydney’s Central Business District to support growing APAC presence
23 July 2018, Sydney – Bullhorn®, the cloud computing company that helps staffing and recruiting organisations transform their businesses, has today moved its Asia-Pacific (APAC) headquarters to a new office in the heart of Sydney’s Central Business District (CBD), to support its continued growth within the region.
Located on Pitt Street, the new office will offer more working space for recent and future additions to the team. Over the past 18 months, Bullhorn has seen its APAC team double in size. By the end of 2018, it aims to have hired three new employees in addition to the 10 new employees it has already welcomed in the past year. While Bullhorn’s APAC workforce is primarily based in Sydney, it also has employees in locations such as Melbourne, Singapore, and Japan.
The highly modern and technology-enabled office will only help to attract better talent. It boasts, for example, a 24-seat boardroom with advanced AV facilities, which will enable the business to showcase the future of recruitment technology, from both Bullhorn and its Marketplace partners. Additionally, there will be more meeting, training, and break-out spaces to foster productivity, collaboration, and wellbeing within the expanding team.
Simon Greening, APAC Regional Director at Bullhorn, said “Location is a hugely important factor for any business opening a new office. We’ve always based our offices in CBD locations because it enables us to spend more time meeting with our customers face to face. While we are a digital business, our business is very much about connecting people, and we believe that technology will never replace the value of human interaction. The fact that our office is closer to Ryan’s Bar, the notorious recruiter hang-out, is just a coincidence!”
In line with the booming growth of the Australian and Southeast Asian recruitment markets, Bullhorn has made significant business progress in APAC over the last two years, seeing a 50 per cent growth in user base since the start of 2017. To ensure optimum performance levels for its growing number of clients in Australia and South East Asia, Bullhorn recently launched a $1 million data centre, located in Singapore.
Greening continued: “Sydney’s CBD has always been a central hub for businesses in New South Wales (NSW). The move to a new, larger office further signifies our strong growth and continued commitment to supporting our clients in the APAC region.”
