PageGroup, the global specialist recruitment company, has announced today that Olly Harris will join the company as Regional Managing Director of Page Outsourcing. Harris joins from Robert Walters Group where he was CEO of their Resource Solutions business.
As Regional Managing Director of Page Outsourcing, Harris will be charged with growing the brand and its global footprint – cementing and deepening existing relationships, as well as bringing significant new clients into the business.
Steve Ingham, CEO, PageGroup, commented on the news, “We believe RPO and MSP, which we deliver through our Page Outsourcing brand, will continue to be an increasingly important channel to meet the needs of large clients in both developing and mature markets. Olly’s appointment is evidence of PageGroup’s commitment to the strategic projects that we know are a critical part of building a successful business for the future.”
During his 20 year career at Robert Walters, Harris worked his way up from graduate to his leadership role through his successful track record in growing teams, developing business functions and increasing profitability. He was appointed CEO of Resource Solutions in July 2010.
Olly Harris added “I am thrilled at this unique opportunity to be joining PageGroup with a focus on building a best in class recruitment outsourcing proposition. PageGroup is a company I have admired for many years and with its global footprint, coupled with strong temporary and permanent capability across a breadth of sectors, has every opportunity of building a world class RPO and MSP offering. To have the chance to drive this forward is hugely exciting and I am very fired up by the journey ahead.”
Page Outsourcing aims to meet the growing demands of clients with staffing challenges that need to be solved quickly and efficiently. It is supported by PageGroup’s three global brands: Michael Page, Page Personnel and Page Executive to ensure access to permanent, temporary and interim candidates across different levels and job functions.
