Contact Profile

Humanis Group Limited

Humanis Group Limited (ASX Code: HUM) is a specialist labour hire, professional placement and international recruitment firm with annual revenues expected to reach $450 million. The Company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in January 2008 as Total Staffing Solutions Limited and later merger with Humanis Group Limited (owner of Westaff Australia and New Zealand) in August 2009 and ResCo Services Pty Ltd in December 2010. The merged Group has an operational capacity spanning Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines, servicing a high-quality client base of principally ASX Top 200 companies. The Group has core capabilities encompassing temporary, permanent and international recruitment and significant exposure to key growth sectors in the market with a focus on the skills-and-labour constrained industries, including energy (coal and oil & gas), resources, transport, logistics and financial services.

Humanis Group is in a position to expand their existing offshore recruitment business and consolidate its presence in industry sectors with chronic skills shortages. Humanis Group will continue to develop its national footprint and broaden its geographical reach throughout Australia.

The Professional Services and Labour Hire Division, brings an experienced management and technical team possessing the requisite industry knowledge and contacts. Our team of industry focused professionals have years of experience across a range of specialty areas, and bring with them a wealth of knowledge and expertise.

The Total Recruitment Group is now part of the Humanis Group. Both businesses are fundamentally predicated on the provision of labour and services on a contracted, rather than employee, basis for their clients. The acquisition of TRG is expected to provide the Company with market segments and geographical locations, resulting in the Company having a wider domestic presence which combined with the Company's international footprint will provide leverage for organic growth. The acquisition will also result in broader industry coverage and a diversified earnings base which will reduce cyclical risks and provide the Company with further cross selling opportunities.

Combining the operations of the Humanis Group and TRG will result in a larger international and domestic workforce pool to meet seasonal demands and provide greater labour flexibility with vertical and horizontal integration benefits.
