Blue Pencil is delighted to announce its partnership with Norman Alex, an international executive search and recruitment company with offices worldwide. Norman Alex were established in 1997 in Monaco and specialises in the banking, financial services, and technology sectors. They now have offices in Geneva, Paris, London and Miami. Blue Pencil is a global legal recruitment company, founded in 2002 in Bristol, UK. The company has offices in Dubai, London and Bangkok.

The founder of Blue Pencil, Liam Mooney said:-

“ We are thrilled about our new partnership with Norman Alex. Both myself and Ivor Alex (the founder of Norman Alex) share similar experiences, visions and ideas about the recruitment market. The partnership will enable us to expand both our global networks, pulling together resources, experience and connections. It provides a fantastic platform for us to work together on key European and American markets whilst building on Blue Pencil’s strong connections in the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia.

We are very excited about the future of recruitment. There is a huge skills shortage and employers are beginning to see the weakness in using social media to recruit. By developing our global footprint we hope to continually find the talent that others cannot. Our partnership with Norman Alex represents the next step in the growth and evolvement of Blue Pencil.”

Ivor Alex, the founder and CEO of Norman Alex, shares Liam’s enthusiasm : “The strategic alliance with Blue Pencil will add coverage of the key Asia and Middle East regions to our existing presence in Europe and the Americas. In addition, their specialisation in the legal sector fits in perfectly with our financial services expertise, in particular for key areas such as compliance and anti-money laundering. We will both work together very closely to develop our presence in the key London market and to continue organising events to increase brand awareness.” Norman Alex has offices in Monaco, Geneva, Paris, London and Luxembourg.
