    Kerry Consulting

    For financial and human resources recruitment firm Kerry Consulting, the majority of its clients are global multinationals requiring key professional personnel to be based in Singapore, South-East Asia, China or on occasion, as far afield as Iran.

    Founded by director Declan O’Sullivan in January 2004, it provides recruitment services to banks and multinational corporations from its Suntec City headquarters. This sometimes involves “exporting” Singaporeans into overseas positions or “importing” non-residents into Singapore based roles.

    About 30 per cent of Kerry Consulting’s business falls into this “import/export” category. To date, it has maintained a 100-per-cent annual growth rate, sees a bright future for its services and is looking to add on to its existing headcount of 14 people this year.
