​Leading creative recruitment specialist Become has announced that they will be opening their first Asian office in Hong Kong on 3rd April 2014.

With offices already established in London, Manchester, Sydney and Melbourne, Become Hong Kong will be their 5th operation and forms the cornerstone of a wider international expansion plan over the next 5 years.

Headed up by experienced local creative recruiter Oscar Li the office will initially be staffed by 3 people and will be based out of the China Building in Central.

Become APAC Regional Director Marc Ansell says:

"From a creative standpoint Hong Kong was the stand out choice for our first Asian office. With such a dynamic mix of older more established players and newer, locally focused startups, it is the ideal place for us to bring our unique specialist recruitment offering to. Become has been providing specialist creative recruitment services for over 17 years. With a reputation for quality, local market knowledge, integrity and honesty Become is the leader in creative staffing."

Sue Pilgrim, Global MD of Become said of the opening:

"We are delighted to be opening our Hong Kong office and look forward to bringing our specialist service to both clients and candidates in the Hong Kong. At Become we firmly believe that ability is nothing without the opportunity and our team looks forward to creating the opportunity in Hong Kong."
