We break down the barriers to recruiting in new locations, matching exceptional candidates with companies looking to succeed in Asia.

Hiring in Asia Made Simple

To access top talent in Asia, a specialized recruiter with location-specific knowledge is essential. Our western consultants understand both the needs of international clients and ideal candidate profiles for a breadth of roles.

Our on-the-ground recruitment team are practiced at finding and engaging candidates with vital local expertise and industry skills. Together, they give our clients an unmatched service, absorbing cultural barriers to find the right new team members for you.

How we make matches

We design our search for your next team member depending on your needs. Generally, each search follows five major steps.

1. Assess

You’ll meet with our consultants to discuss your business, your industry, and why you want to hire in Asia. We can advise you on the essential roles to fill first, and how to grow the team from there.

2. Create

We’re experts in creating inclusive job descriptions with Asian professional culture in mind. Every job description we write is unique, so we attract particular candidates with fitting skill sets.

3. Search

Like our job descriptions, our searches are customised to your business and your open role. Our network across Asia gives us access to premium talent pools, and our language skills mean we can post on local job boards, tap into social media, and access industry circles.

4. Shortlist & Profile

Once we’ve found the best candidates for the job, we use a customized mix of telephone interviews, psychometric testing, face-to-face meetings, and tasks to test our findings and ensure you’ll meet the top talent.

5. Meet & Hire

Depending on your preferences, we offer summary reports, in-depth profiles, interview planning, and contract negotiation. You can be involved at every step or leave it to us – our service is bespoke. When you’ve decided on your new team member, we can act as the employer to help you comply with local laws and simplify your expansion.
