Specialist Area:I specialize in recruitment within the Information Security space, including Technology Risk, IT Audit, IT Governance & Compliance across the Financial Services and Commerce sector.
My Advice:In recent years, technology risk management requirements are becoming increasingly stringent due to rising occurrence of cyber attacks ; businesses especially those within the Financial Services sector are constantly on their toes to ensure any risk is well mitigated while staying compliant. This business need resulted in an increase in demand for strong Information Security talents, and is definitely a hot space to watch with numerous opportunities as technology evolves.
I used to do sales within the Oil and Gas industry for about 4 years before making the switch to recruitment in 2016. I started with recruitment within the Logistics, Supply Chain and Engineering sector, before moving into IT recruitment, where I focused on hiring requirements across various verticals within IT including Infrastructure, Networks, Pre-Sales and Information Security roles. Having that exposure allowed me to have a better understanding of the IT landscape in Singapore, and I believe that allowed me to have a more holistic view on the hiring requirements of each role.
