A big part of our award-winning success has been our in-depth industry knowledge. Our consultants are all well known in the industries they recruit in, and we regularly run and attend events for our clients and candidates. Our team comes from across the globe, but our shared passion for finding innovative ways of solving problems for our clients unites us.
I specialise in Client Solutions, helping businesses prosper and grow, with teams that are empowered and brimming with potential. As an ICF certified coach, I work with companies and individuals to fuel them to reach higher and achieve their biggest goals.
As co-founder and leader of 33 Talent I've lived and breathed the Talent journey from the first hire, the start-up mania, to growing up into a multi-geography brand.
We've convinced the best Talent to be part of the 33 Talent journey. I personally wanted to come to work each day in a positive, ambitious and high performance culture – I feel so lucky that this has become a reality for me. With our full-service Talent solutions we've helped countless clients fulfill their own goals for the same thing.
Paying it forward underpins everything that 33 Talent stands for – we are here to contribute, there is no end to the amount of value we can create in our lifetimes.
Over the years I've volunteered at the theatre, run a marathon for charity, walked rescue dogs, and taken part in building projects. Currently all 33ers volunteer with Image Mission, giving pro bono career and interview coaching to empower women getting back into the world of work.
I coach and support individuals and businesses to discover their brilliance and to achieve more than they ever thought possible. With a focus on APAC, I partner with leaders and high performers to accelerate their growth and help them to create fulfilling, purpose-led careers. Every one of us at some stage faces challenges or obstacles that can hold us back from getting to where we want to go, but I believe that everyone, given the right support and guidance can achieve great things.
With 20+ years of success building revenue generating divisions and highly productive teams across some of the best media and communications agencies in the world, I decided to put my leadership skills to use in a different way – by focusing on drawing out brilliance in others. And so I trained and evolved into a professional coach. As a result of my career, my core clients tend to come from the agency world (PR, advertising, media and digital).
As a leader I understand the challenges and rewards of holding a leadership position. I appreciate the importance of meaningful leadership and purposeful work. I know the value of continuous personal development and growth. I believe in the possibility of possibilities, and I believe in challenging people to discover all of this in a playful and inspiring way.I’ve helped clients get the promotion they have been chasing, supported clients in career transition, unlocked capabilities, and helped people overcome challenges that have been holding them back.
I hold an honors degree in Psychology and trained under the International Coaching Federation (ICF), but my path towards becoming a professional coach started way back in my teenage years (although obviously I didn’t know this at the time) where I started taking an interest in psychology and solving problems for people. In fact, this topic has been a secret hobby of mine for most of my life!
Coaching allows me to draw upon all my experience (personal and professional) and my passion for people’s potential, to help others succeed in creating brilliance in their world.
It’s pretty much my dream job.

On a personal front, I am a certified yoga instructor having graduated from Marianne Wells Yoga School in Costa Rica and I also volunteer at dog shelters in the region when I have the time! I am a serious dog mama with two rescues, Hunden and Brownie.
I focus on recruiting into the PR and Communications industry and I thrive when I’m connecting with others.
My love of people paved the way for a career in recruitment (unbroken only by a few years of pursuing my passion for snowboarding). I hailed from Hays Recruitment in the UK before my move to Singapore in 2014.
With a core focus on recruiting into the PR and communications industry, a typical day could actually include anything from running a “Recruitment Masterclass’ for a regional HR team as part of our subscription service; organising the quarterly PR Presence event or interviewing new talent (and familiar faces) from the PR and communications industry.
As part of the leadership team at 33 Talent, People and Culture was a natural fit for my area of responsibility - It’s now my mission to make sure that our growing team of 33ers are happy at work!
In my own time, I offer career guidance to creative women as part of the “Who’s Ya Momma” mentor programme, run by the wonderful ladies at the She Says network.
Outside of the office, I’m usually swatting up on my nutrition knowledge and training for events like Spartan, half marathons or triathlons or seeking adventure on a snowboard, wakeboard, skateboard and my trusty bike, Goldie.
I specialize in Technology recruitment in the APAC region. My aim is to build long term relationships with the clients and candidates I work with, to become their go-to talent specialist.
My recruitment career has been varied, as a recruitment researcher, in-house recruiter, and agency recruiter, so I really have experienced recruitment from every side! Over the last few years, I have worked with exciting local startups, growth stage companies and enterprises to build successful, high performing engineering teams and at the same time helped candidates on their career journey with fantastic job opportunities in the tech space.
Another part of my job which I love is recruitment for the Thoughtworks Jumpstart programme - an IMDA backed programme which gives local talent a 3 month intro to becoming a software developer. My role is to help the graduates of the programme find a new role on completion of the course which is a really rewarding part of my job.
I'm also the unofficial gardener and tech support for 33 Talent, in charge of keeping our office plants alive and helping my colleagues with all their tech questions!

My career journey had been highlighted by several remarkable projects including one that resulted in growing the limited talent pool of junior Programmatic Traders and Data Analysts in Singapore.
When not in front of my laptop, you will find me in the kitchen learning new recipes or simply organising the spices. The goal is to open a soup kitchen in my hometown in the Philippines when I retire.
I started my career in the Marketing and Communications space helping professionals build successful business relationships. Having worked with C-suite clients in various industries, my speciality in LinkedIn marketing saw me improve and facilitate personal branding campaigns, as well as generate leads. The ability to interact and connect with people and their goals fuels my career and my everyday responsibilities.
My passion as an agile and self-motivated communicator has led me to make a career change into Talent Acquisition, specialising in the PR and Communications industry in Singapore and APAC. It’s a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together.

I specialise in Talent Acquisition, assisting the TA team with Digital and Data/Tech placements. I aim to provide clients with outstanding service, whilst also creating an amazing 33 Talent experience for all candidates.
Since graduating, I have worked as an agency recruiter specialising in the Banking and Finance industry and recruiting for mid to senior positions for Banking, Fintech and Fund Management clients. My work in the FinTech space has accelerated my interest in the future of Digital and Tech, especially in Asia. I've always had a strong passion for building relationships and meeting new people - this has developed into learning more about others' career goals and aspirations, and then helping them secure a perfect, new role. I hope to be able to be THE go-to person for talent acquisition for all my clients.
I like to spend my free time stalking my cat and annoying him as much as possible. On weekends, I'm watching a game of football with my friends and making sure my top fan status on FC Barcelona's Facebook page is kept.
My role is to keep things running while making sure we know where we are going. I'm energised by solving our SME challenges and supporting clients who use our HR services.
33 Talent sees skills and values rather than job titles which makes it a fun and energizing place to work with many career switchers.
I’m passionate about protecting our planet and its people and love the 33 CSR programmes which plant trees and support women.
I plan and execute the marketing strategy for 33 Talent and for our subscription clients. This gives me huge variety in what I do which includes but is not limited to; digital, social media, events, PR, communications and content creation. It's my role to ensure the 33ers have access to all the tools and collateral they need in a consulting environment, as well as making sure we are visible in all the right places!
I moved to Singapore in 2011 and 'fell' into recruitment marketing in 2012. I have a really big passion for branding and have a background in design, which enables me to create many content pieces in-house. Two of my career highlights would be 18 industry award wins and building the brand for a brand new government-led recruitment program. I love getting my hands into a project and building something from the ground up, and wearing many hats.
Outside of the office, you'll find me contributing to my food and travel blogs as well as writing about social media trends. I like to try to cancel out champagne-fuelled weekends with F45 classes, but I also enjoy relaxing at home with our Singapore rescue cat, Duxton.
I provide marketing support for 33 Talent, working closely with the Head of Marketing on various projects including content creation, website optimisation, managing the blog eco-system, and conceptualising brand identities. I am able to provide a pair of fresh eyes for ongoing campaigns and offer an approach more aligned with a 20-something's demographic.
Born and raised in Singapore, I am currently pursuing my Bachelor's degree at King's College London. I am passionate about design and communication, as well as working for businesses that are innovative and have a team wholly invested in their product. I am pleased that my time in 33 Talent can accomplish both of these desires.
In my free time, I run my own online jewellery store and volunteer with a non-profit in Singapore that aims to relieve food insecurity. Less impressively, I'm an avid supporter of the budding bar scene in Asia and am always ordering one-too-many cocktails.
I possess more than 25 years experience in delivering meaningful service programmes. With a background in psychology as well as ACTA, DACE and CAP certifications, I have delivered career advisory and occupational insights with mindfulness. I have positively impacted the lives of many job seekers.
In a former short life, I was a Special Education teacher, having the privilege of working with children and adults with severe special needs, specifically, Prader-Willi syndrome and Aspergers. I also previously counselled drug-addicts and was instrumental in shaping the drug-rehabilitation scene in Singapore.
I am currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Psychology mainly because I am fascinated how the mind works and how it shapes thinking.
I love current affairs, as well as eclectic and esoteric subjects. I also am an aspiring poet, flash fiction writer and paper engineer.
Having spent the last 15 years in recruitment, my experience spans recruitment, career advising & transition for job seekers and specific industry trends updates and research. I have had the privilege to have supported local companies, MNCs and conglomerates and have worked with hundreds of candidates, from fresh grads, PMETs to mature candidates.
To me, it’s about more than just recruitment. It is career advising and career managing for candidates. I work by the principle of understanding the needs and rationale behind the move of each candidate before representing them for any roles. Career guidance is not just the beginning of one’s career.
I have spent 13 years working in regional communications and media planning, helping my clients achieve their business and marketing objectives. I started my journey as a professional coach after having realised my passion for providing value to my clients, beyond just their business goals.
I am now an ICF-certified coach, and I strongly believe that everyone is able to achieve their highest potential. It brings me great fulfillment to be able to provide value to my clients and to be part of their journey!
On the personal front, I have a keen interest in the holistic wellness space, I enjoy exploring gluten-free bakes, and I also love spending time with my dog.
As a Philosophy major in the National University of Singapore, I'm particularly invested in theories centered around the human experience, especially moral philosophy. I like engaging with others to understand them better from a real perspective, compared to a purely theoretical standpoint.
My position in the NUSChoir as the Alto Sectional Leader allowed me to field the varying needs of my members who bond over our love to sing. This sparked an interest in helping others get what they need while doing what they love, and thus in Human Resources as an industry. As such, I am currently a HR and Talent Assistant at 33 Talent where I help manage a diversity of clients and their needs when searching for talent.
Beyond academics and work, I can often be found attending art exhibitions or arranging meet-ups with friends as the designated hangout manager of my friend group.
I am a Non-Executive Director at 33 Talent, having co-founded the agency with Kath over 8 years ago.
I have two passions in life – people and the planet. I'm also an advocate for innovation and challenging the status quo. I continue to have a passion for breathing new life into the recruitment industry through new models, solutions and forging true partnerships with companies serious about recruiting the Best Talent.
This merging of People, Planet and Innovation was at the root of creating 33 Talent - a socially responsible, thoughtful and collaborative agency, delivering the latest high-end and revolutionary Talent solutions.
I'm certified by the RCSA and ITCRA, giving me strong insight to the full recruitment life-cycle, best practice process and a unique understanding of both client and agency side recruitment.
We believe investing in good people is the most important move a business can make. Do you feel the same?
The key things we look for are culture fit and attitude. We like working with people who are just a little bit ballsy and are willing to give anything a go. That doesn't mean being overly salesy, it means having a can do attitude.
We also look for strong team players. We're not interested in working with a team of superstars who ignore everyone else and are just in it for themselves, it's just not us.
The majority of our clients are in the Digital/Tech, Data and Communications industries, or hiring for skills in those areas, which are exciting areas and changing rapidly.
If you think you could be a 33er drop us a line at email@example.com, we'd love to hear from you.
