Please

  1. Fill in our application form
  2. Send us a 1-2 minute video (mobile phone quality is adequate) of yourself. We’d like to hear your views on the following two questions:
  • What I don’t like about policies, peers and bosses in my previous jobs?
  • What is my ideal job and company?

Please do not send us your resume - save that for the Individual Interview phase.

If you have any questions, email us at [email protected].

The support staff who fits well in our firm:

  • Mixes easily with people of diverse backgrounds
  • Is resourceful (i.e. does not need high maintenance)
  • Is fluent in their core work, and does not need much supervision
  • Is willing to be supervised if their competency is low in a particular area, or if the item at hand is critical to the organisation
  • Follows company SOPs

Some of our people-centred practices:

  • 5-day week with flexi-time and work-from-home options. We also have 'reduced-hours full-timers' option for staff who cannot commit to a 40-hour week.
  • No medical certificate is required for short-duration sick leave.
  • Types of leave: Annual, maternity, paternity, community service, spiritual retreat, study and celebration leave. Most of such leave is self-determined.
  • Office attire is smart casual.
  • Everyone on first-name basis.
  • Open-book policy: All finances are disclosed, including salaries.
  • Whenever possible, we re-design jobs to fit a person's talents and professional goals.

Some complaints we have heard about our practices and policies:

  • There sometimes will be work during evenings and weekends if there are urgent programmes to prepare
  • There will be lifting of bags up two flights of stairs
  • 100% of your time will be spent in the office, at least in the first 6 months
  • During crunch times the work-week might stretch to 60 hours or more, resulting in late nights or lost weekends. This can happen several times each quarter.
  • New hires sometimes have lots of ideas on how to change things, but many of these are deemed unsuitable by senior management. It can be frustrating.

  • Individual Interview (may include Aptitude Test/s for Writing, Comprehension, and Conceptualising)
  • Psychometric tests
  • Trainer Demonstration (may require self-study)
  • Final Interview

For other positions, the hiring process is less stringent.
