Once again this year, Flexmarkt, the leading platform for the flexible labor market, publishes the Omzetranglijst (turnover ranking) Top 100. One of the most notable risers in this important benchmark is Circle8Group, which experienced a spectacular rise from spot twelve to spot 8 this year.
IT staff recruiter Circle8 Group has acquired, with immediate effect, a majority interest in Koenigstein, one of the fastest growing staffing solution providers in Germany. No financial details will be published. With this acquisition, having previously reeled in Dutch labels Circle8, FixedToday and Seven Stars, Circle8 Group has taken an important next step towards further internationalisation. Earlier this year, the staffing company already took over Swiss recruiter Swisslinx.
Circle8Group, the company that acquired De Staffing Groep last year, is once again acquiring in the flexible market sector. The Swiss investor has also acquired intermediary firm FixedToday, with additional acquisitions expected shortly.

The intermediary specializes in supporting companies in hiring external professionals, with a particular focus on the specialized and distinctive field of ex-pat arrangements. Since 2012, the organization has grown to achieve a turnover of 75 million euros and approximately 800 contracts.
