We have had an incredible story, and continue to grow at a rapid rate around the world, our APAC offices are no different.
Following on from a lot of success in Singapore we expanded our business by opening up an office in Hong Kong. We are now dedicated to further growing and diversifying our businesses so that we continue to be one of the largest and most specialist recruitment businesses across Singapore, while also expanding by opening more offices across the Asian region.
These growth plans in place offer unlimited potential for all current and future employees.
Phaidon International is regarded as an industry leader in delivering micro-specialist solutions to some of the largest, innovative and most prominent global institutions. We help organizations identify, attract and secure senior-level, niche, hard-to-find talent.
Since 2004, the group has achieved over a decade of profitable growth. Following this continued success Phaidon International raised a $32,184,000 SGD investment from Muzinich & Co and HSBC Bank Plc in April 2016. This investment will enable the group to continue its global expansion by diversifying into new markets and opening more offices.
The expansion plans in place offer highly entrepreneurial growth potential for all current and prospective employees.
Meet Candy Choong - Associate Director
“I was 23 years old when I decided to join Phaidon International. I wanted to join an ambitious, international and fair organization and Phaidon became a very easy choice. My journey has been a challenging yet fulfilling one, as
my role evolves yearly.
I can still vividly remember how it felt when I closed my first deal with the support and advice from my manager and peers. I have always had a great team of mentors that guided me through growth.
My favorite thing about the company is that we have a very clear vision and I am constantly surrounded by intelligent, talented and driven people. We never settle and we are always searching for more; providing opportunities for our staff to grow.
Phaidon International is a great platform for people that are self-driven and highly competitive, and every employee has the opportunity to do more and achieve more.”
Meet Alex Small - Executive Director
“I joined Phaidon in September 2010, it was a little daunting or very exciting. As with most sales roles, my journey has had ups and downs. This is a tough job, through hard work, guidance and a positive attitude, I hit my first
promotion in 6 months. I have since then been promoted a further 8 times, worked in 3 of our brands and had the pleasure of working in 3 of our international offices!
Following this journey, I was recently promoted to Group Executive Director where I am responsible for running the whole of the Asian region for the business.
My favorite thing about the company is the people we are surrounded by alongside the amount of responsibility that I have been given with the entrepreneurial culture. Due to our organic structure managers have been there and done the job that you are doing, this understanding means the training and direction given is both specific and supportive.
The culture is that of a close-knit family. Friendly competition is promoted making each person continually strive to improve and be the best they can be and the culture gives a new meaning to “work hard, play hard”.
