Chandler Macleod and Peoplebank join forces to enhance service capabilities

Chandler Macleod Group and Peoplebank Australia are joining forces. The combined entities will be known as the Chandler Macleod Group. Peoplebank continues to operate under its own name and with its IT/Digital specialization.

Together the two companies form the perfect platform for ongoing talent solutions leadership in every market and region the group operates in across the Asia Pacific.

Part of Recruit Global Staffing

Both Chandler Macleod, one of the region’s largest employers, and Peoplebank, the leading IT and digital specialist talent solutions provider, were acquired by Recruit Holdings Co. Ltd. four years ago. Until now Chandler Macleod and Peoplebank have operated and reported independently into this unit despite having similar operations and locations throughout Australia and the Asia Pacific.

One company ready for sustained future growth

Recruit Global Staffing is confident that the time is right to bring these two very good companies together, creating a truly great industry leader which is ready for sustained future growth. The best of both organisations will be combined, enabling enhanced service capability to customers across the Australian and Asia Pacific markets. Recruit Global Staffing’s CEO, Rob Zandbergen: “It will deliver advantages through both scale and process enhancement, allowing business units to focus on further delighting their customers. It’s an exciting time for everyone involved.”

‘A transnational opportunity’

Longstanding Peoplebank CEO Peter Acheson will lead Chandler Macleod Group as Chief Executive Officer. “This is a transformational opportunity to create a significant, market leading business. We can leverage the two companies’ best practices in service offering, people, brand, learning and development, IT systems and industry best processes”.

A shared mission

Together Chandler Macleod and Peoplebank will contribute to Recruit’s mission to make the world faster, simpler, closer, and helping people to aspire to their purpose in life. Staff, clients and candidates alike can look forward not only to a faster, simpler and closer customer experience, but also to benefiting from enhanced solutions, greater opportunity, more efficiency and more innovation.
