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.
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.
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.
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.
As First Point Group has grown, we have been able to meet strategic and location-based industry changes with major investments towards increasing our global presence. Since the beginning of 2010 we have opened seven new offices, in Dallas, Dusseldorf, Johannesburg, Madrid, Paris, Riyadh and Shenzhen.
With our 11 offices, 22 languages spoken and a global reach of 160+ countries, we are more suited than ever to accommodate your needs.
In addition to geographic expansion, we have grown within and beyond the telecommunications industry, into new technologies including broadcast media and cyber security.
FPG has also invested internally in our global finance and support teams to improve our capabilities in meeting the needs of our clients and candidates.
Our business at First Point Group is truly a people business, dedicated to forming valuable relationships. We have made it our job to respect everyone we work with, both internally and externally.
Our account managers and executives are highly skilled and have regular training sessions to maintain and improve the level of service we expect our clients and candidates to receive. On top of this we have a great deal of international experience and are well accustomed to working with colleagues across our different offices, sharing our expertise in order to support clients and candidates wherever they may be.
At First Point Group we treat people the way we want to be treated. We are not just a recruitment agency; we are a business partner advising and providing best practice methods of recruitment.
FPG was recognised as an “Excellent Partner for Human Resources and Consulting” for Huawei in 2016, as a continued preferred supplier for Ericsson, with special mention of our efforts for Ericsson Indonesia in 2015.
