Acquisition further strengthens Randstad's position as a market leader in technology recruitment and professional services in Australia and New Zealand.

Randstad NV, the global leader in the HR services industry, announces that Randstad Australia has signed an agreement to acquire the Finite Group in Australia & New Zealand.

The Finite Group specializes in technology recruitment, IT consulting and a broad array of IT and Digital professional services.

In 2021, the Finite Group helped over 3,000 candidates find new roles in Australia and New Zealand.

This acquisition will further strengthen Randstad's position as the market leader within the IT sector in Australia and New Zealand. It will be a solid addition to the company's current service offering.

Through this acquisition, Randstad is further growing its market leadership throughout Australia and New Zealand amid continued high demand for tech talent and IT professional services. The Finite Group’s experts bring a passion for IT recruitment and professional services that will strengthen the capabilities of our current portfolio which includes Randstad Technologies, Aurec and Chalfont. I look forward to welcoming their talented and driven employees to the Randstad Group as we help talent and our clients realize their true potential.
