Client Testimonials

“I would like to sincerely thank ScienTec Search’s assistance in so quickly and appropriately filling our open position in Planning. I was impressed with how close to our ideal profile the candidates you provided were and how professional your process is.

While it is critical to be listened to, and we were, the additional insights and recommendations given make your company an invaluable partner in this most important area of organisational development. Mistakes in recruitment are expensive and you have helped us to significantly reduce that risk.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for your assistance and support in our search and hiring of engineering personnel in Asia to support both our Singapore and China operations. The experience with ScienTec Search was fast, efficient, and overall gratifying. I will gladly use your firm again for our future recruiting needs.

When I first heard of ScienTec Search, an executive and technical search firm in Singapore, I wasn't sure what to expect from a non-USA based service provider.

I heard good things about the firm, but frankly I was cautiously optimistic. From my first interactions with the ScienTec Search team, I was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff and methods by which they conducted business. I found the ScienTec Search team to be customer focused, dynamic, creative, assertive, and agile in their search approaches and techniques, maximising the use of technology, resources, and their network in Asia to find the right candidates swiftly.

What impressed me the most is that ScienTec Search has a planned process and templates, the staff is well prepared and become an integral part of the customer's hiring team to make the experience accurate, efficient, and overall satisfying.

The recruiter takes the time up-front to get a good and thorough understanding of their customer's job specification, requirements and expectations and then present candidates that are both technically competent and a cultural fit, while meeting budget requirements. In our case, the hiring team was in China and the USA, and ScienTec Search coordinated the requests and collaborated with the cross border sites to arrange the interviews and secure the hiring.

I would highly recommend ScienTec Search and their team for our next recruiting requirements or for any other referrals.”

“I’m writing in with regard to the outstanding professional services rendered by ScienTec Search Engineering Team for my company’s vacancy of Process Automation Engineer. During this period of sourcing for the suitable candidate, the ScienTec Search consultants went the extra mile for our recruitment needs.

They provided me many qualified candidates even though the post was very niche and a hard position to fill. I will recommend ScienTec Search to other HR practitioners on the lookout for a quality, professional search firm.”

Executive, Human Resource

“The manager I worked with at ScienTec Search excels at building interpersonal relationships, both with clients and candidates. She has been very supportive and we closed a number of niche and challenging positions.

She and her team are always dependable; quick to deliver good candidates and managed the entire  recruitment  process  well.  High  integrity,  personable  and  delivering  great  results.  Highly recommended!”

Senior HR Executive

“With the strong growth and aggressive expansion of Veraz Network in Asia, working with the right recruitment partner was crucial to our success; one who understands our recruitment needs, and possesses strong talent network in the region and speed of placement were key requirements.

Without a doubt, ScienTec Search is our preferred choice of Talent Acquisition partner in the region. Not only were they able to fill our critical positions very quickly, they have demonstrated a strong understanding of the business culture and candidate profile in the Asia region as well as a strong knowledge of efficient recruitment processes.”

“ScienTec Search came highly recommended to us, and has lived up to expectations. Every aspect of the service has been excellent, from taking the brief through to the provision of references. What was particularly impressive was their speed of response to all our requests and demands, especially as we were several time zones away.

After a successful placement (our Regional Director, Asia Pacific), we engaged ScienTec for two further positions, and would recommend their services without hesitation.”

Market Development Director, EMEA

“ScienTec Search has successfully placed a number of senior regional sales and technical positions for our Asia Headquarters in Singapore. During that time they have differentiated themselves from the competition through their professionalism.

They did their homework, understood our business needs and delivered qualified candidates to us in a very short time.  We would certainly use ScienTec Search for our future requirements.”

Head of Sales, Asia Pacific

“I do not know if, or how, I would have been able to do this without ScienTec Search’s help. The ScienTec Search Consultant’s projections for how this process should work, and timeframe, were all spot-on. I do not recall any surprises, in fact I always felt quite informed.  Logistically, in terms of actually working with me and the candidates to connect us both via phone, then in person, was really well done.

It seemed easy, which I cannot imagine it was. I found the ScienTec Search consultant highly responsive and thorough. The candidate profiles were excellent. And I really felt she absorbed everything I shared via email, and in person, in regard to what I was looking for in this position.

I was initially worried about the distance, language barrier and cultural differences, but in the end none of those factors came into play. Given my schedule earlier this year, particularly professional and personal/family demands for my time, all time spent on this project was crucial – and I thought it was all productive time. I look very good for having run a quick and efficient search for someone we have every reason to expect to be successful here at Elsevier. So thank you, ScienTec Search, for helping me manage this time, indeed the whole process, so effectively.

Vice President, Global Corporate Relations

“We have engaged ScienTec Search for our senior level search assignments. I was very impressed with the consultant I worked with, throughout the whole recruitment process, the candidates recommended have met our expectations, feedback was timely and concise and the candidates have been managed wonderfully.

I am very happy that working with her has been smooth and uneventful, which is a great thing! Once again, thank you for wonderful candidates recommended and for the customer service level from herthat have exceeded my expectations!”

“We have recently been successful in expanding our regional support in Asia Pacific from our Singapore location by using ScienTec Search’s recruitment services. ScienTec delivered a candidate that matched our quite demanding specifications and did so in a professional and timely manner.

We have now retained ScienTec to continue to help Sigma add value to our Southeast Asia organisation by recruiting for expansion of our Management Team.”

Managing Director
Sigma Aldrich

“I worked with ScienTec Search on several occasions where they helped with filling both contract and permanent positions within Elsevier’s regional marketing team. Not only were the consultants well-versed with our company’s manpower requirements, they were also very timely and professional in their services provided.

As a result of their personalised and dedicated service, they always referred a stellar range of candidates who were not only highly qualified but also possessed the necessary positive attitude. I will always recommend ScienTec Search for any organisation’s recruitment needs.”

Regional Marketing Manager

“The IP & Science business of Thomson Reuters has been working with ScienTec Search for the past six years. We found ScienTec to be extremely dedicated, resourceful and responsive to our hiring needs. ScienTec is always able to do a thorough job of gathering information about the role, sharing insightful details of the different types of profiles in the market and do a good job to proactively find candidates that meet our needs.

They challenge us to think differently about our needs based on what they know about availability of talent in the market. We believe this is due to the strong understanding of our needs and business as well as having a team of knowledgeable and diligent professional consultants.

The  prompt  attention,  consistent  follow-ups  and  quality  candidate  referrals  speaks  well  of  their dedication towards their customers. We look forward to many more years of partnership with ScienTec.”

HR Director, APAC
Thomson Reuters

“Both ScienTec Search & ScienTec Personnel divisions have continuously impressed us with the quality of candidates, excellent service delivery and professionalism. They have a great understanding of our business needs, and their consultants are competent in sourcing for the right fit, especially with senior level and niche positions, not just in Singapore but across our APAC offices.

I would definitely recommend ScienTec  to  be  the  preferred  recruitment  partner,  considering  the  excellent  feedback  from  our management over the last 7 years of their service with Elsevier.”


“I am very satisfied with the high quality support that ScienTec Search has been providing us. Out of all the agencies that we had used to search for our Regional Sales Manager role in Singapore, ScienTec Search offered excellent service. They were able to identify relevant candidates, understood our industry well, assisted in the interview process and kept us informed via regular feedback.

I like their consultative approach which gives us better insights into the talent market in our industry. The consultants are professional, efficient and I will not hesitate to recommend anyone to use their services.”

Sales Director

“I am glad to have had the support from the ScienTec Search team for the recruitment of technical staff at our new lab in Singapore.  Their enthusiasm and resourcefulness to find us relevant candidates was a great help.

As the Project Manager overseeing the initial commissioning, I am glad ScienTec took care of the recruiting process. They listened and understood our detailed requirements and managed all relevant hiring logistics. I am happy their focus in resourcing filled our talent pipeline and their professionalism impressed me. I look forward working with ScienTec again.”

Project Manager

“ScienTec Search was excellent in sourcing candidates for our Singapore subsidiary. I have worked with many search firms internationally and ScienTec is among the best. They were great with sourcing for the ideal candidates with both the technical and leadership qualities.

In addition, they had an excellent rapport with candidates and kept both Alexza and candidates continually updated.”

Vice President, Human Resources, USA
Alexza Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

“ScienTec Search is easily the best search firm I have worked with so far. I have hired marketing professionals in the US, UK and Australia via search firms and from my experience, they often flooded us with resumes in the hope that one or two will be shortlisted.

In contrast, every candidate presented by ScienTec Search had potential - I wanted to interview them all! They are professional, efficient and great to work with. They will always be my first contact in the region and I wish there were ScienTec Search equivalents around the world”

Senior Director, London

“I have worked with ScienTec Search on a few assignments, and have always found ScienTec Search's assistance and professionalism of the highest quality. We deeply appreciate their support for our departmental needs for both Singapore and Malaysia.

We have no hesitation recommending ScienTec Search's headhunting services to companies in the Biomedical Sciences industry.”

“ScienTec Search provided consultative services on the employment scene in Singapore. They also helped us to hunt for the right candidates for our Distributor Territory Manager role. They were extremely good at sourcing the ideal candidates, following through and keeping the candidates and us updated with the status.

They basically ensured that all aspects of the recruitment process were well looked after. I was impressed with their friendliness and professionalism. Their unique process of managing the entire recruitment process and use of a competency scorecard grading after each interview have been very helpful.

Having worked with recruitment agencies around the world I would have no hesitation in naming ScienTec as one of the very best I have encountered.”
