Antal International continues its strong expansion by opening 3 more offices in May: one in the United Kingdom, one in France and one in Portugal.

The latest induction finished on 3rd June 2016 and was held in the Antal headquarters in London. It was also a great opportunity for some existing owners, Nausherwan Akram and Imo Etuk, to join the training held by Stephen Sweeney as a refresher and to meet their new colleagues. Paulo Nogueira, new franchisee in Portugal was sadly unable to join the class in London but he was part on an online training held by Stephen.

The new owners will launch businesses around the globe in different sectors such as Hospitality, Construction, Design, Real Estate, Engineering, Automotive and Accounting.

Doug says:
"We are recognized as the leading franchised opportunity in global recruitment and as an exceptional international recruitment business in our own right. Becoming an Antal owner can be a very rewarding and stimulating experience, it puts you squarely in the action in the global business arena. It is fun and will stretch you. We are a proven business, awarded Top Entrepreneur in the UK by Ernst & Young and number one globally by our industry peers. In major markets like China, India, Western and Eastern Europe, we are market leaders not as a franchise, but as a recruitment business.
