You know the job market must be strong when the headhunters themselves are looking to hire staff. Here's a perfect job for a confident communicator with a black book full of contacts and at least five years' experience. The recruiting firm of St George's Harvey Nash is expanding and needs senior consultants capable of executing timely executive search assignments and building and managing long-term relationships with a host of prestigious clients in Hong Kong and the mainland. This is a newly created position to serve the requirements of the firm's banking, commercial, industrial, legal and IT clients as they expand their operations in Greater China. 'We need to continue the expansion of our own team in Hong Kong as well as within the region,' said Brad Miller, managing director, Asia. St George's Harvey Nash offers a work environment in which commitment, hard work and a social life go hand in hand. The company won the Hong Kong Recruitment Firm of the Year award for three consecutive years and is recognised as one of the most respected executive search firms in Asia. St George's Harvey Nash is known for quality and detailed recruitment search work within the region. 'The individual will work closely with key clients, as well as build new relationships within their particular industry speciality,' said Mr Miller. In a sector with its fair share of turnover, it's indicative of a strong retention programme that most staff have worked in the company for over three years. 'We encourage a pleasant working environment and seek people who are willing to help grow our business,' said Mr Miller. In order to liaise effectively with clients at a senior management level, excellent communication skills are imperative, as is having a pleasant and outgoing personality. 'The ability to be a team player is a must. St. George's Harvey Nash is a team-oriented environment,' he added. Ideal candidates are likely to be in a similar role at present within a competing institution, or acting in a human resources capacity with a recruitment focus within a multinational business. 'Alternatively, we take on candidates out of different industries who know their individual speciality and can add value to understanding clients' requirements,' said Mr Miller. Due to the company's strong network of offices and consultants within the region, travel is not a regular part of the job, although 'the consultant may be required to travel to complete executive search assignments as required by our clients, or to attend internal team-building exercises', said Mr Miller. A company that cares about its employees, St. Georges Harvey Nash rewards success, encourages advancement and promotes from within.
