Actual group et Clementine

Carmine Capital supports Actual group in its acquisition of Clémentine

Based in Laval (Mayenne), Actual group acquired the recruitment firm Clémentine this summer. With Clémentine, a recognized specialist in the recruitment of talent in the digital, IT, data and cybersecurity industries, Actual group aims to accelerate the digitalization of businesses.

Clémentine, a recruitment expert in the NTIC sector

Founded in 2000 by Emmanuel Stanislas, the Clémentine recruitment agency has recognized expertise in France’s digital ecosystem. Today, this experience has enabled him to develop a real know-how in the recruitment of this reputedly specific population. 

This experience is backed up by a powerful, qualified network of over 100,000 candidates in our areas of expertise. This network is made up of a pool of candidates who are known, evaluated and monitored in terms of their development and motivation. Clémentine employs 15 experts in Paris and Marseille, and recruits around 150 people a year, generating sales in excess of €2.2 million.


Accelerating the digitalization of businesses

Today, as the 5th largest player in the French labor and employment market, Actual group is an independent, family-owned group with a resolutely humanist vision, working every day to facilitate the right to work for all.

Headed by Samuel Tual, a committed entrepreneur, the group is no. 1 in temporary employment in France. With its 3,550 employees and over 600 branches throughout France, Actual group currently supports 33,000 companies and 165,000 job applicants, and expects to achieve sales of 1.6 billion by 2022.

Faced with the growing needs of an increasing number of companies as they embark on their transformation and accelerate their digitalization, Actual group’s managers had to find solutions to meet their customers’ expectations and transformation challenges. By integrating Clémentine and drawing on their IT and digital recruitment expertise, Actual group is able to offer a quality service to help companies select the best profiles in this highly competitive market. 

This new acquisition feeds into the group’s Talent Management family development project, and broadens the offering of its recruitment consultancies (CCLD, Batenborch, Up Skills, Kobaltt and Talent People) in the ever-expanding Digital and IT sector. It also strengthens the Group’s positions in the middle-up and executive search segments.


A stronger position in the IT market

“Thanks to this acquisition and our partnership with Holberton School, we are consolidating our position as the preferred partner for companies seeking the best digital talent. This acquisition strengthens our position in the IT market and will enable us to offer effective and innovative solutions to support our customers in their digital transformation, ready to meet the challenges of the constantly evolving technology market and help our customers grow in this dynamic environment” shares Samuel Tual, President Actual group.

“I’m particularly enthusiastic about this alliance with Actual group, a company recognized for offerings that complement and consolidate our ability to support our customers effectively, by delivering the added value of a specialist. With the strength of our specialization consolidated by complementary resources and expertise, we will continue to serve and advise startups, major groups and the public sector in their digitization and recruitment of digital talent, always maintaining the same level of commitment and competence it has demonstrated for over 20 years!” comments Emmanuel Stanislas, President of Clémentine.


Two complementary players who share the same values

“We are delighted that Actual Group and Clémentine have joined forces. It’s always a pleasure to bring together high-caliber entrepreneurs,” shares Anne-Laure Beuriot, founding partner of Carmine Capital.

By supporting the acquisition of Clémentine, Carmine Capital confirms its M&A expertise in the world of recruitment agencies.
