With April’s help, I was able to secure a position with a company that far exceeded my expectations. Through regular communication and keeping both candidate and company interests in mind, I was not only well prepared for my interviews but had a clear understanding of what the role entailed to ensure I was the perfect fit for the company. I am truly grateful for all the support from her and the Aspire team in being able to provide me with such a wonderful opportunity!
Alycia picked up my profile and took the time to understand my background, experience and desired placements.

She's been really great in understanding my career goals and carefully matched it with the right opportunity. She's great in communicating the role, further allowing me to adapt my approach in order to achieve success and secure a great position. It's also great to work with her since she has a very positive and cheerful personality. My interactions with her have all been nothing but pleasant. I would definitely recommend April to anyone looking for an outstanding level of recruitment consultancy service."
Angelina is a specialist when is comes to recruiting into Sales, Business Development and Account Management. She recently worked with Haymarket and here is what they had to say:
"Angelina is a very diligent recruiter/ head hunter. We had a very specific need for someone on the sales team and we wanted to find a candidate who fitted a set of criteria which are not necessarily easy to find - a young, driven, sales person with a great understanding of financial markets. We were working with multiple agencies, but Angelina was able to provide less candidates but that fitted all the criteria. To myself as the hiring manager, it was great as my time wasn’t spent speaking to candidates who were only partly relevant. Angelina was also very good with following up and making sure the process moved at a good speed, but at no time did we feel rushed to make a decision. Definitely recommend."
Tom Griffin, Head of BDM, Haymarket
Amira understands her client's personal circumstances prior to speaking them. She has a great way of balancing the client's needs with the candidate's situation beyond their professions which many recruiters tend to overlook most of the time. Amira produces win-win results to both clients and candidates. Excellent partner to work with.
Alycia was fantastic throughout the whole job-hunting process – she’s always engaged and upbeat, and was very encouraging and supportive.

Sophia Holmans is a specialist consultant who connects talent and leading companies in the Marketing space. She recently successfully placed a job candidate, Derren Ang, at BBC and here's what he had to say:
"Sophia has been really helpful and resourceful in the pursuit of my position. She frequently updated me on the application process and managed to negotiate better terms on my behalf, for which I am very grateful for. I strongly recommend her to any potential job-seekers who are interested in positions in the media industry!"
My experience with April was a positive and enjoyable one. I found April to be professional and willing to listen, and consider, what I was looking for in a job. She showed a good understanding of skills and experiences I have had and how they could relate to the role I was being considered for. I would certainly work with April again in the future as an employer or a candidate.
If it weren't for April, I don't know what I'd be doing now but I know I wouldn't be as happy as I am! She spent over an hour and a half with me to understand what I wanted, what I was good at, what my interests were. When she found a role she thought would be perfect, I was hesitant because it was out of my comfort zone. She gave me the extra nudge I needed & it turned out to be the perfect job for me. I am incredibly grateful to April for being so fantastic & pairing me with my perfect job!

It was a pleasure interacting with Sophia right from the initial screening call through the closure.

Alycia is a dedicated and insightful consultant, who helped me find my current role at Imagination. She was really committed to finding me a role that would be a great match on both a professional and personal level. Taking time to get to know me & giving me useful advice along the way. She effortlessly balances being a true professional and an amazingly friendly person, which makes it very easy to trust and work with her. And she delivered on her promises! I can't imagine her doing anything less on her business client-side too.
Starting with just 2 roles, Jacqueline, Asha and Aspire have now handled 8+ roles for Zinier.
Here's what they had to say about working with Aspire:
"I joined our startup as the first Product hire and one of the first challenges I faced was building up the Product and UX Design teams without an HR function in our Singapore office. This combined with an already thin talent pool in SEA proved to be quite a challenge.
We explored and on-boarded a handful of agencies to help meet our staffing demands but Aspire quickly became our preferred agency.
Jacqueline, Asha and Aspire replace quantity with quality and the care they put into their curated list of candidates show in our hiring funnel.
Our success rate has been fantastic; we've managed to close 4 PM/UX designer hires in less than 5 months with a few more offers sent out. Because of the trust and rapport we have built working together, they have gone from handling 2 roles to now handling 8+ roles for us across multiple functions.
If I'm looking to hire or if someone I know is looking to be placed in a creative tech role, Aspire is the first call I make."
George Lang, Director of Product Management, Zinier
