I’m making all the right connections
I'm Robert Walters
When I decided to move into recruitment, Robert Walters came out on top among the firms I considered. Every single person I met throughout the interview process was impressive – they carried themselves with such confidence and poise. They were clear about where I could go with a career in recruitment and how they’d help me get there. There was a real sense that this was a nurturing yet dynamic environment where I’d truly grow, surrounded by other talented, driven professionals.
That instinct proved to be right. As I learned the ropes of recruitment through an extensive training programme and direct, on-field experience, my Robert Walters family has been my pillar of support at every step. Whenever the going got tough, there was always a listening ear to be found among my colleagues. The managers were invested in my growth, like my manager Su, who mentored me and worked closely with me to address weaknesses.
After two years in our Kuala Lumpur office, I sought to broaden my horizon overseas, and was looking for an opportunity to further my career in Singapore. Robert Walters Singapore had an opening then, and reached out to gauge my interest in the opportunity, which I readily took. New beginnings are always challenging, but it’s been heartening to find that my new Robert Walters community is just as vibrant and supportive. The management team has been generous with their advice as I adapted to a slightly faster pace in this new market. When I finally clinched the necessary certifications to work as a recruiter in Singapore, everyone in the office cheered me on and celebrated my success as if it were their own!
For those seeking a warm and vibrant environment that sets you up for success, there’s no better place than Robert Walters. The people here are my source of inspiration. Through them I’ve learned to look more closely at important details, communicate effectively and be more assertive. The diverse clients, candidates, and market information we handle every day also keep me on my toes and motivated to be a better version of myself.
The cultural DNA in this organisation has shaped my professional and personal identity for the better, and I have no doubt it will do the same for many other hardworking, motivated individuals.
