Anywr acquires Settle Service and further anchors itself in the Netherlands

Wasquehal, May 2nd, 2023. Anywr, leading international recruitment and job mobility operator, announces the acquisition of Settle Service, a recognized market expert in immigration and relocation services in the Netherlands.


After Expat Partners, Geneva Relocation in the third quarter of 2021, Antares in January 2022 and Solantis in early 2023, Anywr confirms the continuation of its external growth strategy initiated by its €80 million fundraising last June. Settle Service is thus the eleventh company to join the group since 2018.


The acquisition comes shortly after Anywr's dedicated recruitment office opens in Eindhoven in March 2023, and will allow the group to strengthen its position in the Dutch and European market for HR 360 services.


Settle Service brings Anywr additional expertise in immigration and relocation for international employees and in-depth knowledge of the Dutch market. Founded in 1990 and headed by Irene Bunt, Settle Service has national and international coverage through a global network of partners. The current 50 employees join the group alongside Irene Bunt who will stay in charge of the business mobility activity.


Together, Anywr and Settle Service will offer leading international mobility solutions, combining Settle Service's expertise in immigration and relocation with Anywr's 360 HR services. The acquisition will also strengthen Anywr's position in the European international mobility market and solidify its future growth.


"We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Settle Service," said Olivier Desurmont, CEO of Anywr. "This acquisition strengthens our presence in the international mobility market in Europe and allows us to offer a wider range of services to our clients, especially in the field of relocation. We look forward to working with the Settle Service team to develop innovative and quality offerings for our customers."


Irene Bunt of Settle Service also commented on the acquisition: "We are very pleased to join Anywr. Anywr and Settle Servcie share values of service excellence and continuous quality improvement. Moreover, Settle Service will now proudly be part of a leading recruitment, international labor mobility and worktech company. This acquisition will strengthen our position in the market and allow us to offer a wider range of services to our clients."



Anywr continues to seek acquisition opportunities to strengthen its global presence and expand its 360 digital and HR services and solutions for businesses and talent seeking new challenges.
