I joined PageGroup in 2004 as a consultant on the banking team where I have learned so much, billed well and went through a lot with my team. It was truly a “work hard, play hard” environment. Then, I met my fiancée and ended up leaving the firm three years later in 2007. I moved to Japan, joined a global managing consultancy firm for four years, had two children and in 2015, reached out to the Regional Managing Director (who I previously worked with in Hong Kong) and asked if there were any open opportunities for me.
I was then living in Beijing with a shift in my priorities. I still wanted something challenging, results-driven and work with great leaders, but I also wanted the flexibility to spend time with my children and take care of my home and personal life that are important to me.
Luckily, PageGroup was looking for a Talent Acquisition Manager to help with hiring in Greater China. I joined and was given the autonomy to approach the role using my strengths. Now two and a half years on and a move to Singapore, I’ve just been given the opportunity to expand the team and to make the function a permanent and valuable part of our business for the longer term.
What I have enjoyed most about my time at PageGroup is the constant learning, being surrounded with leaders who will support, push and guide you and being able to continually grow and challenge myself outside of my comfort zone. I speak with amazing people every day and one of my greatest achievements now is to hear that the person I hired, is successful with us in the business.
