Kru launch the UK’s first inter-agency staffing exchange programme Thursday 3rd December


Independent specialist staffing agency, Kru Live have launched a unique and exciting exchange programme with their worldwide partners.

Kicking off the initiative with their US partner one lucky team member from Kru London will swap places with their counterpart from the states for a two week period.

Through The Staffing Collective – Kru’s global network currently spanning over 30 countries – the exchange programme will be available to teams internationally.

Sarah Jane Benham, Managing Director of Kru Live and Kru Talent, comments ‘The purpose of The Staffing Collective is to deliver seamless international activity but also to grow together though knowledge sharing and group development.  The launch of our exchange programme gives each agency the opportunity to physically immerse themselves in our partner’s delivery. They will also discover new approaches and solutions whilst elevating their individual industry knowledge and we hope they will have a lot of fun too.

Following a lengthy selection process involving written submissions, internal interviews and shortlisted video call interviews, both agencies chose the first two candidates to be exchanging in January.

Lucy Colgate, Kru’s account manager selected to go to Florida in January said ‘I am beyond thrilled and extremely honoured to be given the opportunity to go to the US. The Staffing Collective is developing fast with an increasing number of our clients looking to promote their brand or campaign overseas. Our group members all focus on maximising the experience our clients have when working with us so I am looking forward to sharing our top tips.’
