Building on 12 years in the technology recruiting industry, Scott spent 7 years working for boutique specialist recruitment agencies in the UK and in 2013 he joined a global specialist recruitment agency in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, servicing clients across the APAC region. He has developed an appreciation for the skills required to succeed – assertiveness combined with professionalism, the ability to truly listen to and understand a client’s needs.

As the saying goes – “don’t judge a book by its cover”
We welcome our new Cyber Specialist Recruiter! Brian reached out to us relentlessly on LinkedIn to join us. Initially we were not convinced due to his lack of experience in our industry, so we decided to meet him for an initial chat. Soon after our first meeting we were convinced he will be our next recruiting wizard.
Brian asks the right questions and remembers all the answers – the ultimate skills you need to be an ace recruiter. First week in the job and he absolutely loves talking to people in view of helping them find their next ideal role, something he’ll be doing for the rest of his life, he says. 😅
His warm and infectious laugh can often be heard throughout the office, but when all is quiet there’s a good chance he’s Googling and learning about his industry. He’s a gym junkie and a secret Nicole Kidman fan (although obviously that secret is out now, Brain – sorry mate).
Brian Lau will be specialising within Cyber Security space and recruit for: Cognitive Security, Cyber Watson, Incident Response Services, Identity Governance, Ethical Hackers, Penetration Testing, IAM, SOC, SIEM, Data Security, Endpoint Security, Cryptography, Internet Security, CISSP, Cisco CCNA, PMP, CompTIA Security+.
After realisation kicked in that Biotech was not as sexy career as Joeann thought it would be, (bored being stuck in a lab everyday looking in a microscope and writing reports on germs) she ventured into recruitment because she’s always been a people person and like’s helping people.
Joeann’s statement was: There’s nothing like the thrill of a candidate’s enthusiastic “Yes!” to an offer, and an equally pleased hiring manager who just landed a top performer. Perhaps even more satisfying is successfully recruiting a superstar and then seeing them develop a great product. Knowing my efforts impact the bottom line keeps me going every day.
We drafted an offer to Joeann on the same day we met her. She joined us 2 days later!
When she’s not on the job, Joeann loves walking her adorable dog called Lola, helps with finding homes to rescued dogs and indulging her love for travelling and seeing new places. She’s a big fan of Avatar movie, binge-watches Netflix series and can’t wait for the next Stranger Things series to start.
Joeann will be specialising in building a niche network of talents in Agile, DevOps and Software Engineers, so she will spend her days sourcing, recruiting and hiring the best people in the region to help a few our current clients in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.
