Specialist insurance recruitment firm Stirling Andersen has announced that it has expanded into the South Island with a new office opening in Christchurch.
The international firm, which has a presence in Auckland as well as across the Tasman and throughout Asia, has opened a new branch alongside its accounting and finance brand Walker Andersen, and specialist construction brand Baker Andersen, which all fall under The Andersen Partnership.
The office will be headed up by Andrew Knight, who recently joined The Andersen Partnership having worked within the recruitment industry for over 20 years in New Zealand and the UK.
