|ULAANBAATAR: Recruitment specialist JDA Applus Velosi (previously John Davidson & Associates) signalled its ongoing commitment to Mongolia’s expanding mining industry with the opening of its newest international operation, JDA Applus Velosi Mongolia.
With its head office in Brisbane, Australia, and regional offices located throughout Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, New Caledonia and South Africa, JDA Applus Velosi has been delivering recruitment solutions to the international resources sector for more than 20 years.
With particular focus on mining, the company has been servicing clients in Mongolia since 2006, developing relationships with Oyu Tolgoi, Leighton Asia and OEMs such as Transwest Mongolia and Wagner Asia Equipment.
Asked about the new venture, JDA Applus Velosi Managing Director, John Davidson, said he sees the opening of an office in Ulaanbaatar’s thriving CBD as being a logical progression in the company’s global expansion.
“In order to meet the growing needs of our valued clients in Mongolia and expand our suite of services to include contractor engagement and workforce management, establishing a permanent presence in-country made sense,” Davidson said.
“We have been successfully servicing the Mongolian market for a number of years and we have a proven track record in developing business operations in emerging markets around the world. We go where our clients need us.
“We are also pleased to announce the appointment of Mike Marshall to the role of Country Manager Mongolia. A highly experienced Australian mining professional, Marshall’s strong exposure to workforce development, local community engagement and recruitment will be key drivers in delivering and expanding our company’s trademark services in Central Asia.
“The JDA Applus Velosi group looks forward to a continued involvement in the growth of Mongolia.”
