Joshua's Story

Joshua Tan - Principal Consultant

"My career at Phaidon International has been a fun and exciting journey so far. When I started, I had limited knowledge about the commodities market, but I rose to the challenge to steepen my learning curve. 

Initially, I found it hard to adjust to recruitment as a career from banking. However, Phaidon International’s dynamic working environment allowed me to think outside of the box when approaching problem solving situations for our clients. Secondly, the open-door culture stimulated sharing of knowledge and the latest market news amongst colleagues. Thirdly, healthy competition amongst teams spurred me to become a better and more complete recruiter.

After building my confidence and industry knowledge, my biggest career breakthrough came when I helped a very senior candidate who had not worked in 8 years to get back into the job market. 

I continued to develop my skills, proceeded to build-out a new team, and I am now privileged to be leading the Commodities Team.

Some of my greatest achievements include being crowned as Asia’s Top Biller (2018), second top biller in Singapore (2017) and successfully mentored a junior on my team to be Asia’s Top Rookie (2018) in his first year of recruitment. 

This is my amazing journey and story here at Phaidon International."
