Workr Group joins JSA Group
The acquisition of The Workr Group strengthens JSA’s offering by enabling the provision of new technology, funding and consultancy services to the contingent workforce supply chain community, including back-office management solutions for recruitment agency partners.
In addition, JSA will now be able to provide comprehensive compliance and payment solutions to international workers following Workr Group’s success in this arena, today managing over £100m of pay across 85 countries.
John Hoskin, CEO of JSA Group, said: “We were attracted to Workr primarily by the sheer quality of its people and breadth of services. It adds not only meaningful scale in our core outsourced employment, payment and accounting services but also significantly to the capabilities we can offer our customers and to the contingent workforce supply chain community, from international payment solutions in a substantial range of territories to recruitment back-office outsourcing, compliance, funding, and technology.”
Matt Tyson, Managing Director of The Workr Group, said: “Over the last seven years, Workr has become synonymous with great customer service and innovation in the solutions we offer recruitment agents and the flexible workforce. Having spent a considerable amount of time speaking with JSA about their approach and the way they work, we are confident we have very strongly aligned values and that this transaction will be positive for our staff, clients, and contractors. The Board, all of whom are staying with the business, and the team at Workr, are tremendously excited about the prospect and potential of a collective offering with JSA.”
JSA, who have a 30-year track record, now support more than 1,000 recruitment businesses and 25,000+ freelancers and contractors. The transaction marks JSA’s eleventh acquisition since 2013 and its sixth since 2018 when the company was backed by Universal Partners. They are headquartered in Watford, UK, now with offices in London, Manchester, Leeds, Chester and Edinburgh as well as regional offices in the USA, UAE and India following the acquisition of The Workr Group.
