Our client, a Fortune 500 Management Consulting Firm with headquarters in the U.S., delivers a full range of audit, tax, consulting and financial advisory services to major multi-national companies. With Asian markets ripe for significant growth, they knew they needed to enter Hong Kong and Mainland China as quickly as possible.
The client was facing serious challenges in recruiting professionals across Audit, Tax, and Financial Advisory Services functions, at a variety of job levels (Consultants, Senior Consultants, Managers, Directors and Partners).
Given the domestic talent shortage and increasing interest from overseas Chinese to move back to China, the client wanted to tap into this pool of skilled and globally sophisticated returnees.
Journey to success
Hudson RPO mobilised a virtual “offsite” team of fully dedicated consultants and researchers located in Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia.
A customised sourcing approach was implemented including mapping and target search, referrals and networks, Hudson RPO database search, user groups, print advertisements, professional associations, business councils, alumni, and online job boards, among other things. Consultants also conducted in-depth analyses of the local talent markets to make sure that their localised search methods would yield the best results.
Hudson RPO engaged in regular market intelligence gathering to keep the client apprised of candidate movements and the latest market trends so the client could continuously fine tune their talent acquisition strategy. Lastly, the team launched a comprehensive and informative reporting system to track weekly changes in candidate status.
Behind the scenes

- The flexibility and scalability of the client’s own recruitment team was greatly enhanced with Hudson RPO’s support in both peak seasons and down times.
