Having initially worked in a Sales capacity where I started off my career as a Business Development Manager for an investment property firm in Hong Kong, what attracts me to recruitment is the pace of the industry which allows me to shape my own results and success. I also enjoy the interactions with different people and building relationships to become trusted advisor to individuals, whether they're colleagues, candidates or clients. Ambition gave me a great introduction and training into recruitment, and with over 10 years' experience in the industry, has helped me build credibility in my market sector.
Roles I Recruit For
I manage Ambition Hong Kong's Banking & Financial Services division covering finance & accounting, operations, internal audit, risk, compliance, and sales & marketing verticals. In addition, I personally specialise in placing experienced professionals at mid to senior level mandates across those verticals.
Outside of Ambition
I am a real foodie! I keep a cooking blog (which admittedly needs updating), enjoy trying out new restaurants, which in HK is a plenty, and love cooking for myself, family and friends. I also make sure I travel every quarter and being Filipina, I am a big fan of karaoke!
Rhoda is very approachable and highly professional. She provided me with great feedback and is an excellent business partner to work with. I have the greatest confidence in her ability and her prompt actions gave me excellent opportunities in my career.Candidate Testimonial

From little things such as having market information (competitors/salaries) at her fingertips to being able to advise on roles and cultural fit, Rhoda’s been an absolute pleasure to work with....Another thing I really appreciate is how Rhoda does what she says she would do.
