All For A Thriving Recruiter Community
At Find Recruiter, we continuously monitor the latest news within the recruitment industry. And we are always excited when there are new firms in town because it’s great news for employers! As each recruiter/agency has their own talent connections, more recruiters gives employers access to a larger network of talents.
In Q3 2020, we saw 13 new recruitment firms in Hong Kong and they were all boutique sized (employing less than 10 recruitment experts). Recruitment firms going boutique is a trend to watch for. Services of boutique recruitment firms tend to be more bespoke which is crucial for businesses today where culture fit and team dynamics are top priorities. Without further ado, here they are:
1. Mavence Group
A new recruitment firm co-founded together by Charles Mak and Eunice Chan. The two recruitment experts have 10+ years of experience combined across various verticals. Charles specialises in Technology and Eunice has her expertise in Financial Services.

Promotion for a better transparency in recruitment industry
We believe that transparency is of utmost importance to promote a healthy future for the recruitment industry. Digitalisation is one of the keys that helps us to achieve that. It helps employers make more informed decisions on the choices of recruiters. It also helps to eliminate bad apples in the industry who tend to work in the dark. As our research shows, a lot of recruitment firms are lacking online prominence, and it points to one thing: A lot more work is definitely required to promote online presence for them.
