Cpl’s established its presence in Poland in 2006 with the purchase of permanent recruitment services company, Eastlink. Rebranded as Cpl Jobs in 2008, the branch catered primarily for the local Polish market at first, the majority of recruitment activities focused on market sectors such as production, catering and customer service. Over the years the market has changed considerably with significantly more multinational companies choosing to locate their operations in Poland. As a result, Cpl Jobs Warsaw has altered its service offering to meet the changing needs of its client base. Nowadays the branch, which is comprised of 10 dedicated consultants, recruits for such industries as Multilingual, IT, Construction, Property and Finance.
To help meet the growing demands of Cpl Poland’s regional blue chip clients, the Wroclaw office was setup in 2010 by Brigid Corby, Managing Director of Cpl’s CEE regions. Initially opening with just 3 recruitment consultants, it now stands at 10. The main services provided for by the office are dedicated to large volume recruitment in the BPO and SSC space for the finance and IT industries. In 2012, the local team won the first Poland RPO contract and successfully placed an onsite recruiter in one of the fastest growing IT centres in Poland. The Wroclaw office continues to successfully provide permanent recruitment services to clients in the west and south of Poland.
