Candidate testimonials

"I was very impressed with Fairholme International's out-of-the box approach to one of their searches, which resulted in the recruitment consultant putting me forward as a candidate for a role that was quite different from my immediate experience. Their creative thinking and trust they had built up with the client led to me joining their client's practice and embarking on a challenging and rewarding career path."

"Having worked in the financial industry for nearly two decades, Fairholme International's had a challenging task in identifying a high profile role for me at one of the leading financial institutions.

Managing Director, Global Equity Derivatives Group, New York, Major Investment Bank —

"I was introduced to Fairholme International a few years ago while working for an investment bank in New York. It had been my desire to relocate to Hong Kong for personal reasons but I found it difficult to persuade employers that my skill set aquired in the US is not only valuable but also immediately transferable. Using their excellent relationships with employers, Fairholme International have helped me identify suitable roles and articulate my credentials in a powerful manner. After a number of interviews organized by Fairholme International, I received a job offer and I am now working in Hong Kong, in an excellent role."
