Randstad Singapore expands Business Support Unit

Following a strong year of growth in 2015, specialist recruitment firm Randstad Singapore looks to expand its Business Support division this year in response to increasing demands for quality talent in the corporate and secretarial support functions. Under the expansion, the Business Support division will now be reorganised into two specialist divisions: Corporate & Secretarial Support and Human Resources.

The newly organised divisions will, in addition, receive investment to support their growth plans with increased headcount.

The expansion will see the Corporate & Secretarial Support specialist team focusing on key roles such as executive assistants, personal assistants, secretaries, corporate and admin support professionals, including legal support.

The Human Resources division will specialise in recruiting HR professionals in the areas of learning and development, compensation and benefits, organisational development, talent acquisition and recruitment as well as HR business partners and generalists.

With the new Corporate & Secretarial Support and Human Resources divisions, Randstad grows its specialised portfolio of recruitment capabilities across different industries which include accounting, banking & financial services, information technology, engineering, life science and sales, marketing & communications.

Leading the new Corporate & Secretarial Support and Human Resources divisions is Josh Border, Associate Director for Sales, Marketing, Communications, Retail and Business Support, who added, “This model will allow our clients to benefit from having a team of specialist recruiters who are committed to sourcing relevant high calibre talent for their businesses. Similarly our candidates will be able to work with consultants who are dedicated to their specific disciplines and industries – and gain access to a suite of quality jobs that will fit their career aspirations.”

Jolene Yee, Manager, Business Support, commented, “Randstad has long been a leader in the human resources industry with the publication of key thought-leadership pieces and industry research. The new Human Resources division, with its increased focus from the reorganisation and expansion, will be able to help continue building Randstad’s foothold in this area.”

Jaya Dass, Country Manager of Randstad Singapore, noted, “Our longstanding commitment to service excellence means that we are always on the lookout for opportunities to increase efficiency in all areas of our business. This expansion represents a good step towards improving our client and candidate experience, and delivering on our speed to market promise.”

“Our industry verticals and dedicated specialist consultants sets us apart as a recruitment firm and allows us to provide in-depth expertise to both our clients and candidates. Our new Corporate & Secretarial Support and Human Resources divisions further enhance this capability and we look forward to supporting their growth in the coming future,” Ms Dass said.
