Where am I from: I am from Malaysia and migrated to New Zealand over two decades ago. In the initial years, my work endeavours necessitated frequent travel between Malaysia and New Zealand. However, for the past six years, I have committed myself entirely to New Zealand, establishing it as my permanent residence and a NZ citizen. This journey has imbued me with a profound understanding of cross-cultural dynamics and a wealth of experience, which I bring to my current role at Beyond Recruitment.

My professional background: I have a Computer Science degree from the University of London and my professional journey spans over 20 years, primarily in agency recruitment space from Asia to now New Zealand. My specialisation lies in technology roles, particularly within the technical domain. Throughout my career, I have successfully facilitated placements for candidates at all levels within the technology sector, serving a diverse array of clients across various industries. My intimate knowledge of the technology landscape enables me to adeptly navigate the challenges inherent in talent acquisition and facilitate meaningful engagements between organizations and top-tier talent.

What not many people know about me: Outside of work, I find joy in the cherished moments spent with my family. Among them, my pride swells for my daughter, whose accomplishments inspire me daily. Sport has always been a part of my life. I represented and played for my alma mater for inter-university’s Badminton. While my competitive spirit is still alive, my weekends now find me indulging in social tennis or occasional cycle.  

What I love about Aotearoa, New Zealand: New Zealand, to me, is in such a Goldilocks zone. From our weather to breathtaking landscapes, beaches and lush forests all within easy reach, offers tranquility amidst the bustle of everyday life. It makes me feel so close to nature. Equally the mix of cultures that converge in New Zealand, particularly in cosmopolitan hubs like Auckland. makes every moment in this country a celebration of diversity and discovery.
