In a move to expand its international provision of its recruitment operating systems, The Access Group has announced the acquisition of Vincere, which is a global provider of technology to over 20,000 recruitment consultants around the globe. The acquisition is the latest addition to Access Recruitment’s unique service offering and has significantly expanded their international reach across the UK and Europe, as well as the APAC region.

The Access portfolio has been developed and grown over time, and includes a host of acquisitions of a number of players in the recruitment sector.

We are excited to welcome Vincere to Access and we look forward to working collaboratively to deliver the best customer outcomes as we accelerate our vision to become the number one provider of recruitment technology in the world.

To make that a reality and more than just hot air, we needed to partner with a heavyweight who shares our vision of providing a single operating system for the front, middle and back office of recruitment firms, on a global scale. Access Recruitment’s heritage in the temp space, plus their strength in key areas such as payroll and compliance, made them the natural choice and puts our current momentum on steroids.

“This acquisition puts the mighty Access machine behind us and turns Vincere into an unstoppable force. There are now no limits on how far we can take the platform and the experience we can provide to our customers. The entire Vincere team here is thrilled to join the Access Group.”
