Scottish IT recruitment firm expands in Thailand

IT recruitment specialists Cathcart Associates has expanded its operations in Thailand’s thriving tech hub, Bangkok, after seeing increasing success in the South East Asian market.

The growing team has already doubled its headcount over the last year, and expects two further additions in the summer. A new office space will allow for even further growth and to further establish the company within the Thai market.

The expansion sees the firm move to the city’s Mercury Tower, a space four times bigger than their previous location. During the official opening earlier this year, the office was treated to a traditional Thai blessing conducted by monks from a local temple. This ancient ceremony is said to offer the staff and business good luck and prosperity for a happy and successful future.

Cathcart Associates was the first UK-based dedicated IT recruiter to open offices in the Thai capital, and is currently one of only a handful of recruiters in Thailand that specialise solely on this sector. In the last year they have doubled their turnover, and helped more than 50 companies meet their goals by placing the right candidates in specialist tech roles.

Nick Macdougall, Managing Consultant for Cathcart Associates in Thailand said: “It’s a very exciting time for the tech industry in Thailand. The country is bursting with great talent, and we are thrilled to have seen such high demand for our services. Looking to the future, we expect Bangkok to become our headquarters for the whole of South East Asia as we ramp up our activity into neighbouring countries.

“The blessing for our new headquarters means a tremendous amount to myself and the team. Our ambition is to become the number one specialist IT recruitment agency in South East Asia, and this unveiling has been a massive step in the right direction for us.”

The expansion of the business has also offered current employees great career opportunities, with Piyatida Anthong recently promoted to Senior Consultant, and several more promotions expected this year.
