Recruitment firm sets up in Lithuania

Have your say

A RECRUITMENT firm based in Edinburgh has set up a new office in the capital city of Lithuania.

IT and financial services recruitment business Bright Purple Resourcing has opened the Vilnius office within a year of opening its first international office in Singapore.

The new office will be headed by Egle Belzute, a former senior project manager from the enterprise company Invest Lithuania.

Nick Price, chief executive of Bright Purple, which is based in Rose Street and nearly doubled its turnover last year to £37 million, said: “There are some great opportunities in this part of northern Europe, where a number of these economies are developing more quickly than in other parts of Europe.

“It’s a tough market but we are aiming to find new routes for revenue through international expansion in areas like southeast Asia and now in mainland Europe and Scandinavia.”
