With a passion for data; I have spent over 7 years specialising in the fast-moving technology market, starting my career recruiting in Analytics with a focus in digital, marketing, and customer domain, thereafter moving into Data Science and Artificial Intelligence across industries.

My thoughts on Climate-tech

I was very fortunate to witness the exponential growth and investment in the data industry across organisations as the Smart Nation initiative was launched.

More companies are looking into AI & ML automation, in the constant fight to innovate and to leverage cutting-edge technologies. The ever-increasing demand for data professionals means fiercer competition in attracting the best data talent.

2020 has been a testing and challenging year for individuals and businesses. We have seen a drastic change in demand across industries and we also naturally pivoted to where the demands are which allowed us to stay ahead of the curve.

With our consultative and quality-driven approach, we advise accordingly and tailor the search to seek candidates possessing the right blend of skills & culture fit for the position. We strive to go above and beyond the typical recruiting role to serve as a brand ambassador for our clients we headhunt the market's top talent.
