Case Study: Facilitating European Expansion for a Staffing Firm

Introduction: Our client, a renowned staffing brand operating in the Republic of Ireland, approached us with a vision to expand its operations across Europe. They sought our expertise and guidance to navigate the complexities of entering new regions and countries. This case study highlights how we collaborated with the client, provided crucial information and support, and enabled their successful expansion.

Client Objectives:

  • Expand operations into multiple European countries.

  • Gain an in-depth understanding of the target regions' cultural nuances, labour legislation, and tax laws.

  • Conduct a comprehensive market analysis to identify potential competition and market trends.

  • Identify suitable office locations and understand the requirements for registering a business in each target country.

  • Overcome the challenges posed by the COVID-19 economic downturn.

Our Approach:

  • Thorough Research: We conducted extensive research on each target country, including studying their cultural dynamics, labour laws, tax regulations, and market conditions. This comprehensive analysis formed the foundation of our guidance and recommendations.

  • Transparent Communication: We maintained consistent and transparent communication channels with our clients throughout the project. Regular updates, feedback sessions, and precise documentation ensured that the client was well-informed and actively involved in decision-making.

  • Tailored Strategies: We developed customised strategies based on the specific requirements and objectives of the client. Our recommendations considered the unique characteristics of each country and the staffing industry landscape.

  • Flexibility and Adaptability: We remained ‘nimble’ to changing circumstances, including the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our team quickly adjusted strategies to mitigate risks and seize opportunities in the evolving business landscape.


Results: Through our collaborative efforts and strategic guidance, our client achieved the following outcomes:

  • Successful Expansion: The client opened offices in ten new European countries, establishing a solid presence in each market. Singapore is in the planning stages.

  • New Business Opportunities: Despite the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, our client secured new business in the target countries, demonstrating their adaptability and resilience.
