FRS Recruitment were delighted to be invited to Saudi Arabia for the Enterprise Ireland Trade Mission led by Tanaiste Leo Varadkar this week. We were represented by incoming FRS Network Group CEO Colin Donnery who further enhanced our relationships with clients in the region such as Almarai to whom we have provided specialist recruitment services since 2015.

FRS Recruitment was joined by 30 other leading Irish organisations to further develop relationships with Saudi organisations in the agri, food processing, equine, construction and government services sectors.

“We first visited Saudi Arabia 6 years ago on a trade mission with EI and  the change in the country since then is palpable. The drive to grow industries such as tourism, sport, construction, finance and ICT is evident across the region and testament to the Kingdoms government driving societal change. We see huge potential in the region for FRS to grow our talent management solutions given the requirement for the people expertise needed to support the change agenda. I would like to pay tribute to the Tanaiste and previously Minister Simon Coveney for building ties and forging links with a Saudi government and organisations who have been nothing but welcoming. It is clear that there is huge respect for Ireland and Irish people here and the role they have played in growing many of the kingdom’s leading organisations and we look forward to continuing to provide human capital solutions to the region” Colin Donnery, FRS Network Group CEO
