APAC Business Awards 2021

APAC / Business Awards 2021 19 , Jan21209 Oct21810 Recruitment Consultancy, TalentOrbit Pte Ltd, has a clear mission - to get the best results for its clients and candidates alike. The Singapore-based company has been building lasting relationships based on honesty, integrity, trust andmutual respect since 2016. Singapore is less than half the size of London. Even so, the country has become one of the largest financial hubs in the world. The stable and transparent political and legal systems attract a multitude of global businesses and financial institutions. High standards of living and a wealth of employment opportunities make Singapore an attractive proposition for those looking to advance their finance career. The country remains the destination of choice for businesses looking to invest in the Asia Pacific region. TalentOrbit Pte Ltd specialises in all areas of Financial Services and Fintech recruitment. The company works with financial institutions such as Bank Julius Baer, Credit Suisse, OCBC bank andS tandard Chartered, J Safra Sarasin, AAM Advisory and many other financial firms. TalentOrbit tailors its services to the requirements of both clients and candidates. It offers permanent, temporary, interim and freelance contracts. The founder and managing director of TalentOrbit is Gayatri Singh. With almost 20 years of recruitment industry experience, she’s seen many changes. She tells us, “The hiring landscape in Singapore changes all the time. Trade tensions between countries such as the US and China have led to many companies moving their bases to Singapore. Maintaining talent pools to fuel expansion is the number one issue for human resource professionals in Singapore.” As such, TalentOrbit places its main focus on attracting and selecting suitable candidates. The recruitment consultancy acts as an intermediary to identify and source qualified candidates on behalf of its clients. Relationship managers, wealth managers, senior insurance experts, and compliance and fintech professionals are all in high demand. TalentOrbit works hard to develop and maintain its understanding of each client’s culture and philosophy. This enables the company to match the client’s expectations of potential and productivity with the most suitable candidates. Understanding that time is often of the essence, TalentOrbit endeavours to minimise recruitment turnaround time for its clients and has a ‘no duplication’ policy to avoid wasted time. TalentOrbit is governed by Ministry of Manpower guidelines. This legislation obliges companies to consider the workforce in Singapore fairly for job opportunities and ensures that quotas of foreign talent remain within guidelines. Recently though, there have been other issues impacting the labour market. Gayatri explains, “The effects of COVID-19 have been deeply felt in the labour market. The restrictions on international travel have reduced the migration of highly skilled talent. Many ex-pats have returned home. The level of scrutiny on Visa applications has increased making getting foreign talent into the country a challenge. “The subsequent rise in demand for Singaporean and permanent resident talent has created a gap between supply and demand. With many unfilled job roles, candidates can often choose between several employment offers,” Gayatri tells us. The rise in popularity of platforms such as LinkedIn has seen many companies start to search for new employees themselves. But using an experienced ‘head-hunter’ who understands the market is still a proven method to attract the best talent to your business. TalentOrbit’s consultative approach and transparent discussions with both clients and candidates ensure a straightforward, hassle-free experience for both parties. Looking to the future, TalentOrbit aims to be the finance and fintech recruiter of choice in Singapore.
