Expertise Built Upon Experience

The Mauve Group of Companies came into being in 1996, from an office the size of a small cupboard and a kernel of an idea born out of practicality. At the time of Mauve’s conception, technology was rapidly advancing and as a consequence, business was shifting into a global arena.

With extensive backgrounds in the telecommunications industry, Mauve’s founders knew well the need for remote or mobile workforces. They identified a gap in the market for compliant global payroll, employment and immigration solutions, knowing these would provide organisations and individuals the freedom and opportunity to explore new business territory.

As the organisation expanded its size and reach with a network of strategically positioned local entities, the scope of Mauve Group’s services began to evolve from core employment solutions into the broad bill-of-fare we offer today in more than 60 countries worldwide.

From the smallest requirement to the largest, today the Mauve Group provides expert global knowledge and services to companies across a diverse field of industries, but still retains the inclusive, supportive ethos of its earliest incarnation as the “Company in the Cupboard”.


Mission Statement

We base our customer relationships on the family principles that underpin our company, and conduct all our professional activities with integrity, openness and commitment.

Never afraid to think innovatively to develop flexible solutions and address problems, Mauve’s services always provide competitive value-for-money, and offer market-leading knowledge gleaned from our wealth of experience. Our global network of colleagues communicate and collaborate to achieve the finest bespoke services for our valued clients.
