Blackfield Associates announces successful SECO licence application

Blackfield Associates, part of the STR Group, is delighted to announce its successful SECO licence application, which enables the company to trade legally and compliantly in Switzerland.

Holding the Swiss labour licence means that Blackfield Associates will now be able to directly provide contract/interim and permanent recruitment services to the country.

Already working with numerous high-profile life sciences businesses across Europe, Blackfield Associates is extending its offering to the Swiss market, whilst maintaining compliance and providing excellent direct services to their clients. Further benefits their customers will see realised include enhanced access to the local Swiss candidates and international staff, providing businesses with the best of both worlds as it widens their talent pools and networks.

Brett Stephens, the Group’s Operations Director, confirmed, “With our extensive, 22 years of trading history in these sectors, we’re excited to now be able to formally extend our complete offering to Switzerland as we continue our international expansion.”

The company’s Switzerland office, based 30 miles from Zürich’s city centre, is headed up by Hermann (Teddy) Bär, our General Manager with over 10 years of recruitment experience.

“Not only will clients benefit, but our interim workers as well, as we are able to better support them and ensure they have a smooth contracting experience, whilst permanent candidates can expect the full support that only an in-country, direct supplier can provide.”
