​I’ve been working at Aspire since 2016, transitioning from a Talent Manager of two to, Senior Talent Manager, Head of Talent, and most recently Business Director for the candidate side of our business. Today I want to share why working at Aspire is so different from what you can expect from many other recruitment careers. We are currently hiring in all of our offices. Please ask us about our vacancies in Singapore by getting in touch with my colleague nadiah@weareaspire.com.

A consultative approach

Having worked for a variety of recruitment businesses and sectors, I thought I understood what a recruitment career can offer me. Aspire changed that for me, and I believe it can for you too. Aspire is defined by its consultative approach that leads the service that we deliver. Our mantra couldn’t be further away from placing ‘bums in seats.’ We much prefer supporting candidates in finding what they really want, and that requires time and understanding to match the right people to the right jobs. It works out so much better for everyone involved and just makes sense.

High standard market knowledge

This, plus a high standard of market knowledge is what I believe makes an approachable, consultative recruitment business for both our clients and candidates. The Talent Hub is a group of very talented consultants who know their sector well and more importantly know how to match our candidates’ skills with those that employers are looking for. My team is not only dedicated to hitting their targets week on week, but they are also passionate about helping candidates find their dream role. The people in our business make up our culture which is often referred to as a real family feel.

Achieving more together

Everyone in our business is approachable and there’s not many who can say that about growing organizations, but it is very true for Aspire. We train each other, we learn from each other, we look out for each other, and even support each other’s targets from time to time. Both recruiters and consultants work as a team. In fact our KPIs are centered around ‘achieving more together,’ they are challenging, but realistic too. You’ll find that our cross-communication is unbeatable. Sometimes we work with candidates who are multi-disciplined, looking for roles in different sectors at the same time, and we can appreciate that this is great news for other teams around the business. Unlike the traditionally competitive recruitment culture, Aspire stands out because we focus on what’s is in the best interest of our candidates first. A motivated, experienced candidate who has been accurately matched to the right role will inevitably satisfy our clients too.

Happy candidates and clients

We don’t just place candidates once. We keep in touch to ensure they get the best start to their newest adventure, and often find them grow into senior positions and come back to Aspire so we can help them hire too. Happy, returning candidates and clients keep us loving the job we do.
