Antal International Essex is based in Hadleigh, just outside of London on the Thames Estuary. Originally launched to offer recruitment services to three key sectors in the growing international market place, the capabilities of this office now cover a far wider sector base. Its core activities focus on Medical Devices, Healthcare, Pharmaceutical, Retail, FMCG & Technology markets.

Their clients range from Fortune 500 organisations to smaller SME’s. They help their client’s to source talent in their own domestic markets, with general expansion plans and help enter in non-domestic countries and with the expansion into the emerging markets.

Antal International Essex offers a truly international edge to the recruitment world across all sectors and disciplines. As the international community has become smaller Antal International has expanded and developed a network unsurpassed by its competitors, allowing them to deliver the highest and most consistent quality of service to their clients and candidates irrespective of the sector they may be from.
