We’re Staying Focused in 2017: the Year of the Rooster

Eric (Zhijun) Xu, Huawei’s current rotating CEO until March 2017, gave a New Year message focused on creating value for customers and achieving sustainable growth. We at First Point Group (FPG) have very similar company values, a similar mission statement and similar ambition to succeed within the technology sector.

While Huawei uncovers the newest technology trends, read more to find out how First Point Group finds the best talent to advance the technologies and companies behind them.

We've Come This Far But Haven't Forgotten Our Roots in Excellent Client & Candidate Service

“We will firmly implement Huawei’s eight principles for improving the work ethic of managers. All managers must focus on creating value for customers, and work to “grow our crops, harvest the gains, and fertilize the soil for future business growth”.” – Xu, Huawei

Founded in 2004, we have gained 13 years of experience in recruitment for specialist technology.

Today, First Point Group’s mission is to be the largest, most respected specialist technology recruitment company, achieving this through organic growth, investing in our people and by providing exceptional service to our clients and candidates.

Not Your Typical Recruitment Agency! FPG’s Drive & Determination and Specialist Knowledge Set Us Apart

“We must sustain profitable growth and maintain healthy cash flow. The key to this is to improve quality, especially the quality of our contracts and operations.” – Xu, Huawei

Similar to Huawei, First Point Group has seen consistent double digit growth with a 34% increase in turnover over the last three years, resulting in 86 million USD turnover in 2016.

In being a three-time winner of Best International Recruitment Agency in 2016, 2015 and 2014, we have proven to have the drive and determination that translates directly into the quality of work and service we offer our clients, candidates and colleagues.

First Point Group was also featured on the Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 list for 2016, a list that ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest growing international sales over two years.

We Redefine the Rules to Best Meet Your Needs

“We must avoid unnecessary formalities. We should focus on creating value and solving problems for our customers.” – Xu, Huawei

To increase value and provide better solutions for our clients and candidates, we have streamlined our administrative processes with more efficient use of software and have consistently met our recent financial goals of paying our contractors faster than ever.

To continue creating value for our clients and candidates, FPG has focused on developing our social media presence and accessibility, and launched a brand new website. In 2016, 40% of our global successful candidates were sourced from social media.

This was also shown when FPG was ranked as a Top 10 ‘Most Socially Engaged’ recruitment agency out of 60,000 firms in 2016.
