Recruitment experience in Malaysia

Our head-hunting and talent pooling experience is broad. Whilst we have a dedicated Malaysian candidate network, through leveraging our broader regional office network, our KL team has supported concentrated recruitment campaigns on an international level, to encompass Indonesia and the UAE (as examples), and harnessed Executive Search services for Board-level hires, including a CFO for a major national oil company.

We have in-house support teams encompassing assignment support coordinators, finance, commercial & legal, and travel specialists. Our support teams work collaboratively to ensure that all aspects of contractor mobilisation, onboarding and logistics run smoothly. With our service, we will manage contractors’ travel, visas, compliance and their payroll and taxation to ensure that workers arrive to your project site, on time and in accordance with local legislation.

To date we have placed thousands of contractors into Malaysia and as a result of our experience in-country we have built a strong reputation with local visa and immigration authorities. We’ve helped clients to streamline their hiring operation on sites with complex working patterns incorporating different shifts, different rates, and different nationalities. Our demonstrable understanding of local employment laws means clients can rest assured we have workforce management and logistics covered.
