Leading global recruiter Oscar has announced the launch of a new office in Philadelphia, which is home to some of the world’s most high-profile tech giants.
The office, opening this month, will support Oscar’s flagship Technology brand and it’s niche divisions, amid ambitious plans to strengthen the business’s international reputation
The location will also enable Oscar to expand on its already extensive client base in America’s North-East, while the team focuses its attention on growing Oscar’s considerable range of corporate recruitment services across tech disciplines, with particular initial focus on CRM vendors such as Salesforce, MS Dynamics and Workday. The office opening quickly follows Oscar’s 2nd US, which opened in Austin in October 2019, and has grown staff numbers by 300% since inception.
Operating the division will be a highly experienced team of experts including Kyle Carson and Louis Beck, who have already been strategically hired by Oscar, working remotely in lines with COVID-19 restrictions. Further hires have been made that start in conjunction with the office opening and there is a mandate to reach double figures staff by year end.
Oscar identified Philadelphia as a key location on account of its influential and growing tech scene, which is paving the way for exciting opportunities in the Ecommerce, data science, coding and healthcare arenas, to name a few.
In addition, a handful of Philadelphia’s tech firms saw major acquisitions valued at more than $2 billion last year, representing a culmination of years of investment by not only venture capital and private equity firms, but also local employees, advisers and partners.
Oscar’s newly renovated office space features a conference center, an on-site gym and boasts the upscale R2L Restaurant on the 37th floor. Workers can enjoy direct access to the shops at Liberty Place, the Westin Hotel and condo living.
Managing Director for The Americas, Kevin Holt l says: “The next 12 months are going to be really exciting here at Oscar, starting with the opening of our Philadelphia office.
We are very fortunate, through our previous successes and prudent management, to be able to see this very unstable era as an opportunity to access great talent and continue to grow our business, bucking the trend elsewhere,
We hired two excellent local consultants in Kyle Carson and Louis Beck, who together bring an array of recruitment & technical knowledge, enthusiasm and personality to the office.
These key hires, coupled with the attractive location of Philadelphia, put Oscar in a great position to keep improving our service to clients and candidates alike along the North East coast and Midwest region’.
This launch comes within weeks of Oscar adding to its core brands in Technology, Energy and Construction with new distinct launches of Oscar Digital and Oscar Life Sciences, which cohesively supports clients on a global basis in the respective sectors.
Oscar’s HQ is in Manchester, UK, with additional offices in London, UK, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Houston, Austin and now Philadelphia, U.S. This expansive infrastructure has enabled Oscar to service multinational clients on a global basis and strategically deliver the best candidates, wherever they are in the world.
