Corporate Profile

The successes that we have brought many candidates in the past enables word of mouth referrals to be the prime reason accounting for our constantly expanding database of highly qualified candidates. With a good relationship cultivated and sustained with our existing and new candidates; CA Search’s team of professional recruiters would map each candidate set of skills, personality, experiences and qualification against the pitted standards set by companies. In order to explicate the professionalism and authenticity of our recruitment process, a step by step guide that CA Search utilizes in sieving the best candidate for a given job includes these processes. First, there will be an induction process and candidate assessment before testing the candidates’ behavioural against the position.

Our team would then proceed to formulate comprehensive candidate reports and conduct a “supervisor specific “reference checking so as to align the accuracy of the match as much as possible. Our personalized touch and individual approach to every client and candidate instead of relying exclusively on technological sieving filters have made our services highly sought after in Singapore.The credibility and trust that we share with our employers makes us the preferred choice of recruitment agency.

We give utmost importance in listening to the needs of each recruiter and our team of experienced and skillful recruiters will do the work of matching the most ideal candidate among the pool of applicants to the most appropriate positions.
