It’s Mr Worldwide: Serocor’s International Expansion

Company News

We’ve gone international! The Serocor Group (of which ARM is part) is delighted to announce the business acquisition of German-based recruitment firm, ORSON.

ORSON specialises in the permanent placement of engineering, technology and strategic management personnel into roles within the automotive industry across Europe.

The Serocor Group comprises class-leading providers of recruitment and human capital management solutions. Following this acquisition, ORSON will further enhance the Group’s STEM recruitment capabilities, aligning to the existing work carried out by Advanced Resource Managers (ARM) which provides engineering and IT recruitment solutions on a temporary and permanent basis.

The strategic acquisition of Orson will contribute to the Group’s long term global expansion, something which Group CEO, Mike Gawthorne, believes to be a key factor to the longevity and continued growth of the Serocor Group:

“ORSON will instantly enhance our international capabilities – something which we are advancing with at a rapid rate. This complements our growing presence not only in the UK but the UAE and India.

“I am excited about how ORSON will further cement our relationships with clients and candidates in Germany and mainland Europe, I look forward to what the future holds for this new partnership”.

Serocor has made some major advancements within the international market, working with new and existing clients located across the USA, Middle East and mainland Europe. The Group has identified growth overseas as a major business goal to complement its existing business strength and reputation within the UK. The newly-formed partnership with ORSON will also enhance the types and levels of service provided by the Group, building opportunities for clients and candidates across Serocor immediately and for the future.


ORSON is a consulting company specialised in ethical best practice recruitment, HR consulting and technology transfer. It focuses on creating new business for R&D clients with a sustainable workforce and continuity in their sales and development processes.

Boutique in size, yet thriving with technology know-how and work ethic, ORSON has changed the life of many engineers. Furthermore, we implement change management in HR & sales processes, and successfully help companies expand their projects by introducing strategic sales bench solutions.
