Dulsco Group, which provides manpower, environmental and talent solutions, has acquired Edinburgh-based recruitment firm Advance Global Recruitment (AGR). 

The acquisition is part of the UAE company’s strategy to accelerate growth in the country and enter new international markets, Dulsco Group said in a statement on Monday. 

AGR has offices in Scotland and the UAE, with clients spread across 70 countries. The company specialises in the recruitment of talent in the oil, gas and renewables sector. 

“[The acquisition] will accelerate [the company’s] growth both in the UAE and, critically, in new international markets,” said David Stockton, CEO of Dulsco Group. 

Dulsco did not disclose the value of the transaction, which follows its purchase of Parisima Talent in July 2022. 

AGR will continue to be led by Stuart Hunter as CEO, along with their management team in all locations.
