Employment opportunities are currently being offered at a medium-sized company with a blue-chip client base that offers international best practices. KCS is one of Asia's leading independent and integrated providers of corporate accounting, corporate secretarial, payroll outsourcing and trust and estate administration services. Its clients range from multinationals to owner-managed businesses in industries such as banking, consumer products, pharmaceuticals and manufacturing. 'Although we are not as large as our predecessor firms in size, we maintain our heritage of best practice in all areas, especially in business and human resources,' said Tom Corkhill, KCS's chief executive. 'As a service provider we differentiate ourselves by the high quality work we produce, with a personal touch,' he said. In addition, Mr Corkhill said the company views success as a partnership with staff. 'Our staff help us in our business success and we help them in their career success.' As a result, the company places high value on working relationships and staff development. This ranges from strong support from both peers and seniors to the development of good business and personal connections between staff. Due to increasing business, KCS is looking to recruit individuals who wish to develop a professional career in accounting or corporate secretarial services. Accountants, accounting assistants, payroll officers, payroll assistants, secretarial officers and secretarial assistants are all in demand. In particular, the company welcomes motivated individuals who share the same work values. 'Those who already have adequate work experience in similar firms may join us as seniors or management staff,' Mr Corkhill said. Applicants should have strong analytical reasoning skills and enjoy customer service. 'Those who excel in KCS are the ones who demonstrate high work-quality and value team work,' he said. 'They also possess adequate business knowledge gained from either formal education or practical experience.' Once on board, employees are offered a formal qualification assistance programme to help them achieve the qualification most relevant to their job duties. This programme not only provides financial support, but also time off for study and examinations. Once members of staff qualify, the company provides training in various personal development areas, such as presentation skills and supervisory skills, among others, to equip them for their next career level. 'We also provide leadership training through internal or external workshops for our managers so that they can be equipped with the necessary skills when a team leader position becomes available,' Mr Corkhill said.
