Singapore Recruiter roundtable debates – November’08

Recruiter Roundtable Debates is organised by eFinancialCareers.Sg and attended by senior internal recruiters from several of Singapore’s leading financial institutions.

Some of the key issues and findings emerging from this week’s discussion are –

  • Both Employers and candidates becoming more cautious in the wake of the global financial crisis
  • Job market remains in comparatively good shape and is still attracting foreign talent
  • Hiring levels are found to be generally lower than last year but no savage job cuts like NY or London
  • Growth sectors – risk, audit and compliance
  • Strong demand for advisory and relationship manager roles in Private Banking
  • In-house HR/recruitment teams are increasingly placing emphasis on internal recruitment strategies and reducing reliance on agencies.

***Happy hunting folks***
