Top reasons to work at Morgan McKinley Hong Kong

Working in Hong Kong (or anywhere in Asia for that matter) offers a rare opportunity for experienced agency recruiters to challenge themselves to something completely different to the recruitment markets in the UK, US or Ireland.

Every desk in Hong Kong has its own challenges and advantages but overall, it’s a relationship driven market and you will need to push yourself out of your comfort zone to be truly successful. For example, the IT sector is a candidate short market whereas the Sales and Marketing sector is very fast moving. Our Front Office team operates more like a retained search firm – being very strategic in their search and sending the best candidates in the market but the client pays a contingency fee (no hire, no charge).

With over 14 years in the Hong Kong Market, we have a fantastic reputation within the local market across Financial Services and Commerce and Industry. We have won best Banking & Financial Services recruiter in the Recruitment International Awards in Hong Kong for the last three years. We also won Best Recruitment Innovation at Asia Recruitment Awards in 2017. Morgan McKinley prides itself on service delivery to both clients and candidates. Despite being a global firm, there is a boutique feel. You get to be on first name terms with the global CEO and COOs, and there is a personal attention to follow up and building relationships with clients and candidates. The Hong Kong office currently has four Consultants who are in the league table of Morgan McKinley’s top 50 global billers. 

The Hong Kong office culture is about working in a team as well as valuing the individual. We don’t have candidate ownership and no internal competition within your team. You should never feel threatened that your teammates are going to take away potential earnings from you. We are quite agile and flexible in how we work and you are given a lot of autonomy and support to reach your goals.

There are times that everyone is focussed and on task but we also value our down time. We are like a family in the office and enjoy socialising with each other outside of work as well as giving back to the community. We have been recognized as a Caring Company by The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS). Other benefits are fresh fruit delivered to the office weekly and discount gym membership. Our CSR team also help to organize our end of quarter events such as bubble soccer and archery.  

What are we looking for in an experienced recruiter?

We are looking for people with real drive, motivation and passion in their career. People who want to develop their careers in a supportive, dynamic environment, and help drive our business forward.
