Andrew Ramsay, JAB Recruitment’s Chief Executive Officer said: “I’m incredibly proud of our global team and excited about what our new people can bring to help grow the business and support more energy sector employers.

“It is a challenging recruitment market, but investing in the best technology sets JAB apart, and empowers us to redefine the way that talent and opportunity connect. Harnessing AI and marketplace technology and applying it to the staffing market through the launch of our own mobile app, helps to streamline the process and drive great outcomes for our clients.”

The Dundee-founded company, which incorporates the executive search business Ramsay Black, has seen a 60% increase in UK revenue and a 35% increase in US revenue over the last 18 months, and is investing $1 million as it aims to treble its multi-million-dollar revenue and double its head count to 60 within three years.
