Selby Jennings Expands in Singapore

Date: 30 November 2011

Selby Jennings is proud to announce that as a result of rapid growth within the Asia Pacific Region, following only 9 months of trading, Selby Jennings Singapore is moving to a larger office to accommodate their growing business.

Following the inception of the Singapore office in June 2011 and aggressive growth within the Asia Pacific Region thereafter, Selby Jennings has increased their Asia Pacific revenue by almost 200%. Having opened up multiple new client relationships while further leveraging a long standing APAC market presence since 2005, Selby Jennings have also diversified and deepened their client offering in terms of new market coverage. The consultant team has quadrupled in the short space of 9 months, and with additional local Singaporean consultants as well as secondments from London soon to join the team, a new office was a necessary step forward.

The office, located in the brand new One Raffles Place Tower 2, will open for trading on 2nd April 2012. To help maintain their high level of customer service for Asia Pacific and international clients, Selby Jennings has invested heavily in new technology, including advertising capabilities, video conferencing facilities and internal networking infrastructure. Furthermore they continue to build on their diverse work force, with consultants from varied regional and cultural backgrounds, who support specialist local knowledge and language skills. The majority of staff are bilingual, giving the team a full delivery capability in both local and global dialects.

Selby Jennings’ umbrella group Phaidon Capital have also recently launched & developed a highly profitable Oil & Gas business in Singapore – Laking Aran Moorhouse – as one of several Phaidon brands to be launched in Singapore in 2012. Both brands are physically active throughout Asia not just Singapore, with the teams frequently visiting clients within the region to develop business across multiple markets and verticals.  Hong Kong is currently top of the agenda for Phaidon Capital, with HK offices to be launched in Q4 2012.

James Brown, Regional Head – APAC says:

“Asia is Phaidon Capital’s key target growth area for 2012/13, and our plans to launch into Hong Kong this year, as well as Selby Jennings’ rapid expansion in the financial recruitment market, shows testament to this. We also aim to replicate our success via wider sectors & brands, such as Laking Aran Moorhouse in the Oil & Gas market, and are always open to discussions with personnel interested in launching their own brand, making full use of the Phaidon platform & infrastructure.”
