BRADFORD JACOBS OUR STORY
Our Global Expansion
Our vision is a world of opportunities without limitations for everyone.
We are a business expansion and international employment consultancy that aims to create a long-lasting and positive influence on the global economy by changing the way companies do business. We achieve this by removing limitations for everyone who wants to grow. Our aim is simple- to deliver comprehensive employment and corporate services that allow businesses to focus on their core objectives, just as we focus on ours.
We live in a diverse world where success means different things to different people. However, all of us have one thing in common – we are people who refuse to settle for where we are at right now. The insights we provide help companies and their employees develop confidence in themselves and their projects, as well as build trust in new unconventional business solutions. Our leaders are dedicated to continually delivering on our promises to all our stakeholders, building a better working world for your and our people equally. Whatever success means to you, Bradford Jacobs are committed to helping you achieve it. We understand how interconnected the world is and that the impact of the work we do goes way beyond international employment compliance. Bradford Jacobs’ purpose serves as a guide to our rapidly growing team, providing context and deeper meaning to our everyday duties.
We support the advancement of global technological innovation by enabling IT companies to expand their international reach; fight unemployment by assisting professionals all over the world to take on jobs that normally would be unavailable to them due to limiting circumstances; connect pharmaceutical enterprises and research centres with the best talent, and by doing so, give millions access to better medical care; assist brands with employment and tax regulations to protect their integrity, reputation and workers’ rights; educational information and current updates we provide help businesses, individuals and entire communities to navigate through crisis and avoid unnecessary disruptions.
At Bradford Jacobs, we are convinced that the world of opportunities is the one where everyone – workers, SMEs, corporations, start-ups, NGOs, and freelancers – have equal access to resources necessary to achieve their goals.
Through our main service lines – Consultancy, Global Expansion, PEO, Talent Acquisition, Remote Working and Contractor Management – we enable our clients to gain access to these assets, allowing them to make the most out of their ventures.
The Idea. eCRM Euro Ltd was founded.
Our story began in Edinburgh 19 years ago by providing services for specialist IT project implementations that recruitment agencies and large consultancies were not able cover effectively. Working across such niche technologies as ERP, CRM, BI, EAM, CMS ERP, CRM, BI, EAM, and CMS allowed us to build an extensive network of top IT professionals around the world. As well as gain a deep understanding of Technology industry trends and needs.
Contractor compliance was added to the range of our services.
Euro Accountancy and Finance Services (EAFS) was born out of the need to provide compliance for international contractors while working in Europe. With the Technology sector expanding enormously, it was getting harder and harder to fill in the vacancies due to the shortage of local professionals. Meanwhile IT talent pools in Eastern Europe, Asia and South America were growing rapidly. Unfortunately, there was no possibility to bring them in on a temporary basis. EAFS opened a huge window of opportunity for Technology companies in Europe with its contractor compliance services by enabling them to access top talent worldwide

Entering into a strategic partnership with TopSource Worldwide. This partnership will provide technology, compliance, HR support and geographic footprint offering substantial benefit to our current and future clients. This is in line with the Bradford Jacobs 2022 – 2023 growth strategy to offer improved services to clients with enhanced systems, a greater team and additional global jurisdictions. Bradford Jacobs’ strategy focuses on being a holistic, end to end, full life cycle partner to its clients. Moving forward EOR and its associated business ancillary services will remain a core offering provided by Bradford Jacobs, however, the strategy makes provision for a hybrid Business to Business and Business to Consumer focused offering. This will primarily be driven by Bradford Jacobs becoming a supplier of choice in global expansion solutions and tools. Talent acquisition, creation of a Business Hub, HR, compliance, software, employee mobility, company formations, recruitment marketing and the diversification into additional digital platforms are key parts of the strategy. The delivery mechanism for the advanced services to the existing client base will be primarily built on new bespoke systems unique to Bradford Jacobs.
