These people will match the professional employees by skillset, development areas and aspirational areas to projects to ensure people are getting the best development and exposure to their specific area of specialism.

Essential: Stakeholder management, relationship building and flexibility for the business will be a key competency for the newly created roles as any new initiatives need to have strong business buy-in. These are very high profile and visible positions face-off to all members of the Singapore; so the successful candidate will need to be very people-driven and will want to establish strong relationships across the business.

You will oversee the Resource Planners as well and ensure they are supported. (From 7 - 12 years experience)

Resource Planners x 5 - The successful incumbents will be junior recruiters/HR professionals looking to move to a large global matrix firm supporting the business on their internal resourcing needs. You will update your senior resource managers, identify any resourcing gaps, understand existing skillsets of consultant workforce and try and match them to pipeline projects. (From 3-6 years recruitment/HR/resourcing experience)

Desirable: Experience recruitment, HR and or talent management. Experience within a consultancy is desirable, not essential.
