GRS Group open Asia Pacific office

 In GRS, Tax Recruitment

GRS Group, the international specialist search consultancy, today announces the opening of its Hong Kong based office to meet the growing demand of high level recruitment in the Asia-Pacific region.

The office, located at Level 39, One Exchange Square, 8 Connaught Place, Central, Hong Kong, will focus primarily on Capital Markets in the areas of Sales & Trading and Financial Engineering across the Asia-Pacific region. The GRS team in Hong Kong will be led by Bhupesh Darbar, with the help of Senior Consultant Graham Dallison, who both relocated from London, together with Angela Leone a Senior Banking Consultant. Collectively the team has nearly 30 years experience in recruitment.
To further strengthen the team and to meet the needs of the four practice areas; Capital Markets, Risk, Legal and Tax, GRS has recruited a Chinese Legal specialist, Eleanor Cheung, a qualified solicitor, who will focus on the legal side of investment banking recruitment. In June 2007 two more specialists are to join the team, one to boost the Capital Markets offering and the second to specialise in Tax.

Candidates are being sought and placed in the region for Risk & Tax from the UK at present; however this practice area will be transferred to the Hong Kong office as soon as possible. With each senior level placement taking between two to six months to complete, having a team based in the region permanently will increase the capacity to take on more clients.

Hong Kong based Bhupesh Darbar, Head of the GRS Hong Kong team, said: “We have been planning to open a permanent Asia Pacific office to meet the growing needs of the market for some time and are now delighted to be open for business. The expansion into the region and the transfer of talent from London, coupled with talent from the region, means we are well placed to bring our high level services and offering to the market. Asia Pacific is a growing market for us and whilst Hong Kong is one of the key markets to start with, Tokyo is currently growing fast.”
