Following the customers: Farida Gibbs on why she’s opening a new office in Dublin

Farida Gibbs, CEO of Gibbs Hybrid Workforce Solutions explains why she's opening a new office in Dublin as the Irish city strengthens its status as a tech hub.

Booming demand for digital workforce management sees Gibbs Hybrid Workforce Solutions open up new office in Dublin. This expansion follows a year-on-year revenue increase of 19 per cent in 2016, as the minority-owned business hit £58 million in total UK operations. Gibbs’ growth has repeatedly exceeded the industry average and completely outstrips Staffing Industry Analysts growth prediction of 6 per cent for the industry as a whole.

Gibbs’ decision to open up digital workforce operations in Dublin follows two significant client wins amongst the FTSE 100 last year. Outperforming larger competitors, Gibbs secured a huge twin contract with one of the world’s major technology giants. Gibbs’ are now their core supplier for IT and Business professionals across the UK, as well as their Vendor Neutral MSP, managing the technology supply chain. The combined deals are worth just under £28 million.

The new office space highlight the next step in Gibbs’ growth strategy to expand its footprint, which aligns with their values to offer clients a dynamic and agile service. The Dublin office will gift their multinational clients with access to on-site client support to better deliver bespoke talent solutions.

A driving factor to Gibbs’ rapid growth has been a result of its innovative hybrid approach, which blends technology staffing solutions and project consultancy to global blue chips brands.

“It might be an age of remote working and connections around the globe, but we’ve made this move to Dublin because we still believe in being close to our customers. In the past we’ve opened up facilities in places like Northampton and Cheshire to provide talent services where they are most needed,” said Farida Gibbs, CEO of Gibbs Hybrid Workforce Solutions.

“Our growth so far has come from this commitment to maintaining client relationships, and as Dublin strengthens its status as a tech hub, we’re very excited to support our clients’ ongoing growth there,” she said.

“Digital technology continues to drive industries forward and the strength of your talent pipeline is increasingly what keeps companies ahead. Clients are looking for a trusted partner to secure this pipeline from end-to-end, so we need to make sure we are with them every step of the way,” Gibbs said. “It’s this people-centric service, care and attention given to both our contractors and clients, which is driving our growth as we strive to be the most respected digital workforce partner in the industry.”
