The STR Group and its portfolio of specialist recruitment brands 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 the brands Blackfield Associates, Insignis, Talos and urban will now be able to directly provide contract/interim and permanent recruitment services to the country.
Already working with numerous high-profile life sciences, automation and engineering businesses across Europe, these brands will now be able to extend their offering to the Swiss market, whilst maintaining compliance and providing excellent direct services to their clients. Further benefits their customers will see realised include an enhanced access to international and local Swiss candidates, providing businesses with the best of both worlds as it widens their talent pools and recruitment 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 formerly extend our complete offering to Switzerland as we continue our international expansion.”
The Group’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’ 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, and permanent candidates can expect the full support that only an in-country, direct supplier can provide.”
