Exciting changes for IPA Personnel Services

genU has signed an agreement to transfer its ownership of IPA Personnel Services to Synaco, and its parent company Synergie.

This is an exciting prospect aimed at providing greater opportunity and an even better experience for IPA labour hire employees, candidates and clients, and a more specialised workplace for IPA staff.

genU has made IPA staff and stakeholders aware of its intention to sell IPA now a suitability qualified and highly regarded potential new owner has been secured, in Synaco by Synergie.

Synaco has been particularly impressed by IPA’s position as a reputable recruitment company in Australia, its 40 years’ experience, aligned client portfolio and its footprint, which will complement and expand the existing Synaco network.

Since becoming part of genU in 2016, IPA has been able to source new avenues for growth and create an impact in the community. It’s now time to allow IPA to expand under the umbrella of a multinational specialist company with greater reach, and deeper expertise and experience in the recruitment sector.

Synaco by Synergie is part of a 55-year-old worldwide organisation. Synergie is an international group, incorporated in France, providing companies and institutions with global human resources management and development services: recruitment, temporary employment, training and consultancy. Ranked seventh among the industry leaders in Europe, Synergie has more than 5,000 employees throughout 17 countries.

It has been active in the Australian market since 2012. While backed by a multinational presence, Synaco operates locally at heart. It is a leading recruitment agency specialising in labour hire in a multitude of industry sectors including manufacturing, logistics, defence and technology, construction, mining and resources. The foundation of their success lies in strong, long-lasting relationships, fostering the culture of a local mindset with global support.

The formal handover date is yet to be confirmed, however genU and Synaco are working closely to ensure a smooth transition for all parties involved.
