I am a specialist recruiter with a focus on sourcing high-calibre temporary and contract professionals for the Banking and Financial Services sector in Singapore.
Contingency hiring is one of the fastest growing areas of recruitment globally and this is equally true in the Singapore market.
My advice to candidates would be that undertaking a temporary or contract assignment is always a rewarding experience and the reasons for being open to doing interim work are numerous. As opposed to sitting at home and searching for a permanent role it is more advisable to maximize that time in a contract role, gaining more experience and improving your marketability, expanding your professional network, giving yourself of a good chance of being converted to a permanent position, ensuring there are no gaps in your CV and – last but not least - earning an income. There will be increasing numbers of contract roles in the future as more and more organisations are seeing the benefits of having a more flexible workforce and are increasing their contingency headcount, so it certainly pays to be open to contracting.
My advice to clients would be that hiring a high-calibre contractor can solve so many of your problems, whether your need is for a period of 12 months or more or just for a few weeks. All of our contractors are fully referenced and their experience verified, they can hit the ground running and add immediate value where you need it. If you want cover during a busy period, if you are recruiting to replace a permanent position and it may take some time, if you have an urgent project that needs completing, if you don’t have the headcount room to recruit a permanent hire or if you are short-staffed due to long term sickness or maternity leave then a professional, experienced contractor would be the answer to all these problems.
I have started my recruiting career within the Technology space and focusing on permanent hiring, I made the switch to recruiting for Banking and Financial Services 3 years ago, specialising in the recruitment of contractors across Risk, Complianc
e, Finance, Audit, and Operations. I pride myself on my deep market knowledge, work ethic, commitment to speed of process, and the strong network I have built and my passion for customer service.
