Activus Services, an IT service company founded in Toulouse in late 2014 and also located in Paris, is to open a sales agency in Bordeaux and will recruit some fifty employees between now and 2021.
Specialised in Big Data, the start-up which already employs 130 people in France is growing rapidly.
In Bordeaux, it hopes to enter sectors such as aeronautics and wine.
A strong rise in recruitment prospects
Activus Services assists companies in need of IT expertise and positions itself as a facilitator for its customers.
Activus Services aims to create some ten agencies in France and hopes to double its number of consultants in 2018. The Bordeaux agency should consist of 15 to 20 people by end 2018, to reach fifty within the next three years.
Activus Services is recruiting among all types of profiles for its 6 major areas of expertise: big data, consultancy & audit, industrial systems, infrastructure, digital applications and data system security (data specialists, technicians, engineers, etc.).
The company firmly believes in a participative approach to hiring skills and offers tailored recruitment, with a coach following a community of ten consultants throughout their career.
Bordeaux, ‘the logical move for the growth of ACTIVUS’
The region’s economic vitality, particularly in the digital sector, was a convincing factor for Activus to locate in Bordeaux. In addition to its headquarters in Toulouse (80 people) and its Parisian agency (20 employees), the start-up hopes to contribute to the development of the Bordeaux ecosystem and provide its expertise to companies while strengthening its network across the greater south-west region. Thales is already among its first customers.
Invest in Bordeaux was acknowledged as being ‘the reference service to facilitate location in Bordeaux’. The agency supported the company by providing numerous services included in the Welcome-Pack programme: assistance in recruitment, spouse mobility, the search for premises and local integration.
