The History

It is a fascinating success story of 26+ years.

It all started in 1995. Having returned from Saudi Arabia where his 10 year long career culminated in Administration and Personnel Manager of a leading Group of Companies, Mr. P.S. Selvaratnam, Chairman/Managing Director – SelcoHR, established his overseas recruitment business to connect Sri Lankan talent with global employers.

Started in a miniature office with just two employees, it was indeed a journey of humble beginning. But ever since, through our steadfast commitment to our core values - Integrity, Reliability, Transparency and Excellence - it has been a constant march of growth. From a 500 square feet to 7500 square feet office space with ever growing team of employees, from one among others to one above others, the transformation has been phenomenal.

Looking back, it is highly gratifying. Starting with one country, Saudi Arabia, and now serving 15+ countries, 500+ satisfied employers and 25,000+ gainfully employed job seekers, the journey of 26+ years is fulfilling indeed. And that gives us the impetus to march ahead with confidence that we have been treading the right path.

So, the journey continues with ever increasing number of employers and job seekers that we serve.
