Further strengthening its UK profile TMS Asia-Pacific (TMS) has joined resources with respected London-based hospitality industry recruitment specialist Collins King & Associates.
Announcing an agreement between the two companies, TMS Chief Executive Officer, Gary Marshall said the new accord would give TMS a much bigger reach into the UK's highly specialised hospitality industry recruitment market.
The move also gains TMS its first entrée into continental Europe via its new partner's The Hague-based (Netherlands) associates.
Mr Marshall said the new venture was a 'mirror' of an existing agreement TMS established in the UK last November with The C&M Group.
"While the agreement with C&M gave TMS access to an expansive travel recruitment and training agency network, the relationship with Collins King provides us with an expert insight and entry into the UK's burgeoning hospitality sector," he said.
Under the agreement TMS and Collins King will pool resources on a wide number of cooperative applications - information sharing, collaboration on strategy, research and promotional activity.
Mr Marshall said the agreement also extended to education and training.
The Collins King agreement follows hot on the heels of a similar agreement announced last month between TMS and Dubai-based The Hospitality Company which saw TMS gain its first foothold in the Middle East region.
