Managing Director, Hong Kong
I have worked in the recruitment industry for over 10 years, specialising in identifying high-calibre technology professionals for leading financial services and commercial clients.
My passion in people dates back to my years in the University of Waterloo where I studied Human Resources. I had a first job in HR with a European Bank and have continued my journey in recruitment ever since.
There is nothing more rewarding than helping people realise their potential and ensuring that placements are matched for all parties. The exciting part in technology recruitment is its continuously evolving nature due to boundless innovations, and the even more exciting part is in its ability to match the right talent which helps to shape the future of businesses.
Roles I Recruit For
Currently managing the Technology function at Ambition, I focus on recruiting for senior and executive-level roles across Financial Services and Commercial sectors, covering both permanent and contract placements.
Outside of Ambition
I have a passion for singing and will sing when I can!
I reached out to Fiona for a Middle Office Senior Java Development role that we have been trying to fill for the past 3 months without success. She demonstrated her in-depth knowledge of the market and the type of candidates that we are looking for. She has very deep access to the technology professions in the Banking industry. Within a few days, we received 3 CVs which are all very relevant to our needs and we eventually hired 2 of them into the team. Throughout the interview process, Fiona has constantly provided constructive feedbacks to both the candidates and the hiring managers. The 2-way communication is indeed very helpful which ensures we have hired the right talent into the team. I really appreciate Fiona's professionalism and efficiency. She has helped us to locate and place quality candidates in a short period of them. She is someone I can trust and would look forward to working with her again in the future.Client Testimonial
