“Avencia, the origin of the ‘game changer’. At the beginning of the partnership, we were all flagging under the weight of recruitment, with little opportunity for adding value. Our recruitment offering is now unrecognisable.“

HR Director – UK & International Division

“The quality of the recruitment we have now is “streets ahead of where we were previously”. Avencia is making a real difference in supporting us to achieve our goals.”

President – UK & International Division
