Celebrating Success at the Made in the UK Awards

Back to Blogs

Earlier this year Worldwide Recruitment Services (WRS) was announced as the winner in the 'Financial & Professional Services' category at the Made in the UK, Sold to the World 2023 Awards. To celebrate this significant achievement, we recently sat down with the Department of Business and Trade, delving into our past successes, ongoing initiative and future strategies concerning the expansion of our expert services.

At WRS, founded in 2008, we've been steadfast in our mission to connect talented individuals with opportunities across the energy industry, specialising in renewable energy, oil and gas, offshore marine, as well as construction projects. Over the years, we've facilitated more than 25,000 placements worldwide, contributing to the growth and success of both individuals and organisations.

Mark Brown, our CEO, expressed his gratitude, stating, ‘’Exporting our services to other countries has significantly impacted the way we shape our growth and success at WRS. Selling overseas has allowed us to expand our market opportunities, diversify our talent pool and client base, and optimise our operations’’.

Looking ahead, our vision encompasses an expansion of our market presence globally, harnessing digital channels for enhanced marketing and sales strategies, and a keen focus on fostering client and candidate growth and retention. Exporting continues to be pivotal in our growth plans, offering access to new markets, diverse talent pools, and invaluable resources.

Our recent accomplishments include welcoming five new consultants, with ambitious plans to scale our USA team to 50 by 2028. The establishment of our US hub in February 2023 has played a pivotal role in serving key clients within the energy sector across the US and worldwide.

The recognition from the judges credited our commitment to exporting our services. With an extensive portfolio spanning over 40 countries and successfully mobilising talent in over 90 countries in 2022, we have spent over a decade solidifying the foundational role of exports in our business model and success.

In sharing insights for fellow UK businesses eyeing international growth, our key advice underscores the critical importance of agility, adaptability, and a vigilant approach towards market dynamics, consumer trends, and competitive landscapes. Continual monitoring of performance metrics, coupled with a proactive collection of customer and client feedback, is pivotal for identifying opportunities and areas for improvement.
