Morgan McKinley hires Head of Contracting to meet growing demand for contractors in Hong Kong Cayan Tsim appointed as Associate Director
19 September 2016: Global professional services recruitment consultancy, Morgan McKinley is excited to announce the appointment of Cayan Tsim as Head of Contracting in Hong Kong. Tsim will play an essential role in strategically leading and supporting the Morgan McKinley contract division, at a time where companies are relying more and more on contract professionals due to market uncertainty.
With almost 10 years’ recruitment and talent management experience in Hong Kong, Tsim brings a strong skill set and an excellent reputation for high performance, establishing key strategic accounts, as well as building teams from scratch. Tsim previously worked at Robert Half where she was Division Director for Banking Operations and Capital Markets before taking on the Division Director role for Technology within Financial Services and most recently Division Director for Technology, Temporary Division.
Reina Cheng, Managing Director Hong Kong commented, “We are finding that more companies in Hong Kong are dealing with a large number of projects as well as their day-to-day business operations. With tight headcount budgets in place, temporary staff are essential at providing extra resource for these projects as well as serving as temporary covers for staff on maternity leave, extended absences and sabbatical leave. Hong Kong is currently heading towards a trend where contract professionals are increasingly sought after and we are pleased to have Cayan onboard to manage and grow our contract division business.”
Tsim commented: “I am very happy to join Morgan McKinley at a time where the company is focused on growing its market share in contract recruitment whilst continuing to reinforce its reputation in permanent recruitment. Morgan McKinley has all the competitive advantages to become a leader in this sector. The company has already established a strong reputation as a specialist recruiter in its various disciplines by using a powerful “Career Ally” concept, putting candidates at the heart of their strategy.”
In its Q2 APAC Employment Monitor Morgan McKinley reported a 30% drop quarter-on-quarter and 13% drop year-on-year in terms of contract job vacancies in the market in APAC, following a typical seasonal trend. Q3 has definitely picked up in terms of contract jobs available in the market and number of professionals opened to contract roles, seeing this as an opportunity to explore career change or entering prestigious companies.
