Kelly Services Announces New Scientific Specialist Division
Leading recruitment company, Kelly Services, has expanded operations, announcing its entry into the New Zealand Scientific employment markets.
Kelly Services today announced the launch of Kelly Scientific Resources, the latest in its expanding range of specialist employment divisions.
The new Kelly Scientific Resources will place highly qualified science professionals in areas such as pharmaceutical, environmental, food and beverage, biotech, and chemical scientific positions.
Kelly Services’ Regional General Manager Australia & New Zealand, Craig Atkinson, said, “With our strong presence in the Australian Scientific market, it was the logical choice to introduce our expertise into the New Zealand marketplace, enabling us to service customers on both sides of the Tasman. It will help us to provide comprehensive services to both employees and employers into a wide range of industries”.
The introduction of Kelly Scientific Resources comes at a time of rapid growth for Kelly Services, which is raising its focus on specialist staffing to supplement its generalist permanent and temporary staffing divisions.
Other specialist divisions in the Kelly Services group include Kelly Engineering Resources, Kelly Vendor Management, Kelly Office, Kelly Industrial, and Kelly Contact Centre.
“We are excited to be expanding our New Zealand operations with the addition of Scientific staffing to our extensive group of specialist divisions”, said Mr Atkinson.
In 2005, Kelly Scientific Resources celebrated its 10th year in operation, celebrating being the largest scientific recruiter in the world with over 100 offices globally.
This year Kelly Services celebrates 60 years of staffing, becoming one of the largest employment organisations in the world with offices in 30 countries and providing employment for nearly 700,000 employees annually.
