Gurj Sandhu - R1113687
Specialist Area:I manage the specialist IT Division which provides IT delivery & senior management roles including development, infrastructure, functional, SAP, Technology Sales and IT Leadership positions across Singapore and South East Asia.
My Advice:Technology offers a massive opportunity for any ambitious candidates who are keen to make a big career in IT. For me, Technology moves very fast. As a candidate I guess you have to move just as quickly to keep up with the latest trends, technologies, principles and methodologies. This means continual learning, continual research and continual pressure on your employer to give you the latest projects so you can gain that valuable experience to move ahead of the pack. In addition, being an effective communicator between business stakeholders and IT always owns highest demand from any potential employers.
I have over 7 years recruitment experience across a number of disciplines and international markets. I started my recruitment career in the UK where I managed the senior temp and contract market in Finance across the West Midlands including launching a Finance Turnaround Division when the Financial Crisis hit. In between two stints with the same Financial Recruiter I lead the commercial Banking Practice for an Executive Search firm specialising in Financial Services. Before joining Morgan McKinley to head up the IT Business in Singapore, I helped launch and establish the Banking Operations and Commerce Finance business for a global recruitment consultancy in Mumbai, India. I am highly consultative in my approach. I work with my candidates in a proactive manner to ensure that I am adding value to their search at every step of the process. This approach ensures that I have a detailed understanding of my candidate’s career goals and aspirations and as such I am able to provide my clients with exceptional talent that are a great fit for their team and organisation.
