Onward Search Poised for Growth in 2017
London creative staffing firm is looking to capitalise on success of 2016 Move Agency acquisition with new executive hire and digital refresh

LONDON, ENGLAND–Onward Search, a staffing firm serving the digital and creative communities across the UK and Europe, has made a series of moves to position themselves for significant growth in 2017. The company opened its European headquarters in London in 2015 and is coming off a significant growth year in 2016 highlighted by the acquisition of Move Agency and the hiring of its founder, Chris Haslam, as Director.

Onward Search kicked off 2017 by announcing the hiring of Paul Finan as Joint Director. Finan brings with him more than 10 years of creative acquisition experience. Prior to his work with Onward Search, Finan was the Head of UX Recruitment for Cogs Agency, where he worked extensively to connect global, SME and start-up businesses with leading talent across Europe. 

“I’m thrilled to join the Onward Search team and partner with Chris [Haslam],” said Finan. “OS has a strong reputation in the US and I look forward to building a similar presence in London and across the European digital talent market.” 

Onward Search also just released a major redesign of its website including a re-aligment of its content strategy across social networks. The team tapped into its own talent base to design and develop the site, focusing on a repositioning of services, better user experience, and a superior mobile interface. The new website will allow for more thought leading content aimed at providing valuable insights into the digital staffing space.

Onward Search is one of many London-based businesses  feeling optimistic about the 2017 fiscal year despite new challenges in their market. According to the Staffing Industry Analyst, a recent survey of more than 600 employers shows that an uptick in demand for permanent staff, and the need to combat a growing skills gap, will help bolster the UK staffing space in the months ahead.

We have a great, experienced team here with plenty of resources to handle the influx of business were expecting with recent trends in the digital and creative staffing space, said Chris Haslam, now Joint Director in LondonWere really excited for what 2017 has in store for us.
