      Senior Consultant, Michael Page Finance, Pudong

      The best part of working at Michael Page is the broad learning opportunities that are provided. During my two years’+ experience with Michael Page, I have been promoted from associate consultant to consultant and to senior consultant and I have always found new challenges and learning opportunities at each level.  Every six months I have grown my career to the next development stage and have always been provided with guidance and tutoring along the way. The training provided has helped me learn recruitment technical skills, communication and time management skills as well as leadership. It has also helped me build up my confidence with fitting in to a fast-paced and sales driven environment.

      The most rewarding part of my job is that at Michael Page, you have a very clear career development path and my efforts at working hard are recognised accordingly through promotion, learning opportunities and bonuses. Also, there is a very strong culture of teamwork, consistency and fun. People at all levels are respectful of others' opinions, and that leads to an appreciation for diversity and recognition. I enjoy working in teams with people from many different backgrounds, whose strengths and passions complement my own.

      Jackie Wang

      Manager, Michael Page Financial Services, Pudong

      I was attracted to PageGroup because of its dynamic culture and the sense of belonging. Also my contribution to the business is well recognised, not only financially but also with strong support from the management team on my career development within the company.

      The most rewarding part of working here is that I have a clear picture of my future career path, step-by-step. I see great potential for my career at PageGroup, with the support from the management team. One opportunity would be to have more exposure to different businesses or different regions, and this is all possible within PageGroup because of the company’s strong support for people moving to other businesses, countries or regions.

      Howard Chan

      Director of Michael Page Sales & Marketing and Michael Page Procurement & Supply Chain

      Starting as a consultant with PageGroup, I took on new and exciting challenges and was given the opportunity to increase my exposure to different platforms and networks.

       Apart from the usual day-to-day running of the business and operations, in a typical day I meet clients and jobseekers to discuss their needs and also provide training and development to the team, which ranges from new joiners to more experienced consultants or managers. I enjoy that my job allows me to witness firsthand the growth and development of my teams while the continuous opportunity to meet clients and candidates creates new and exciting learning experiences.

      It is important to embrace the values of the company you work for and I truly embrace the PageGroup values, especially teamwork, which is a pillar and foundation of our success. It has also helped fuel my aspiration to help individuals who want to work and grow in this business. I enjoy knowing that I am helping to grow the business, not just in terms of the bottom line but also human talent. Grooming our managers and teams, identifying potential leaders and charting their career path with them gives me immense gratification at work.

      Working at PageGroup provides career opportunities and benefits that can only exist within a network in a large, global organisation. As I reach my first decade with PageGroup, I look forward to a number of things including more responsibilities, a broader scope, bigger portfolios, developing future leaders and possibly, or hopefully, a promotion in the near future.

International Transfers

View the profiles of some of our international transfers to find out why our global presence makes us a great company to work for.
David Slater UK - Canada

I joined Michael Page Sales in 2006 as a consultant. Interestingly I didn't join (as many do) with the intentions of working internationally... it's funny how things pan out when the right opportunity presents itself.

Last year I had an internal discussion about the growth potential and the obstacles to overcome in our Canadian business. I'm now director of Michael Page Sales, Marketing and Technology in Toronto. It's still early days with plenty to accomplish but I already feel that I've learned so much. I'm excited about what lies ahead and it's clear that it was the 'right time', despite me not knowing it only a few months ago! 

Alena Salakhova Russia - USA

One of the reasons I joined PageGroup in 2009 was the opportunity to gain international experience. After five years I knew I could stay or challenge myself somewhere new.

I am still a very young director and people in Russia consider my relocation to San Francisco Bay Area (the most developed area for new business development and start ups and an incredible place to live) as amazing. 

The one thing I would say if you want to progress your career internationally – don’t be afraid to chase for it and make your dreams come true.

Denis Daniliuc France - Mexico

I joined in France as a consultant and progressed to manager level before applying for an international move and I was given the opportunity to move to New York. Heading back to Europe, I joined our office in Brussels to take over various disciplines in Belgium. After a few years, good results and a baby, I moved to Mexico City to grow our operations in this dynamic country.

I enjoy the nice weather and amazing weekend trips this beautiful country offers. If you want to develop professionally and enjoy a strong international network, PageGroup is definitely the place to be!

Aaron Bambrick Australia - USA

I started at PageGroup on the graduate programme in 2008 and before transferring to Houston I recruited in the mining, oil and gas sectors in Brisbane. Transferring internationally can do a lot for your career but it’s also a big challenge. 

Having worked in both the Australian and US oil and gas markets I have now transferred to Calgary to help open the office here and establish a local presence for Michael Page in Western Canada. Calgary is a beautiful city only an hour from the Rocky Mountains and the market is similar to that of Australia in a lot of aspects. Calgary presents a significant opportunity for Michael Page and gives us an integrated North American oil and gas team. 

Jamie Hart UK - Sweden

I joined Michael Page in 2000 in London and in 2014 it felt the right time to explore international opportunities.

Learning something new about yourself and other people, learning new ways of recruiting in different markets has always been the main driver behind my attachment to PageGroup. Moving to Sweden has taken this to a whole new level. 

The trust placed in you when you move abroad is inspiring, realising how much there is to learn gives you extra energy and living in a different environment positively challenges you professionally and personally. Now I won’t look back when I am old and wonder ‘if only’...

Marco Cremonese Italy - Germany

I started in Page Personnel Milan in 2009 as a trainee and became a senior consultant in the Retail division in 2010. In 2012 I took over the Digital & New Media specialisation and in October 2013 I became a manager.

I was happy in Milan but I wanted to experience meeting new people and working in a new division. I also wanted to develop personally.

I now work for Michael Page Finance & Accounting in Munich – of course it is a hard challenge and a new start, but it is a wonderful experience. I´m happy about the opportunity that PageGroup gave me.

Giovanni Presti Italy - Turkey

I was one of the top performers in Europe and won a trip to Istanbul. I didn’t know then but a year later the company, in response to my desire for international experience, was going to propose Turkey as my next chance to develop.

I am growing a new team in Istanbul, a wonderful city in a country where the culture is different from Italy but where there is a lot of energy in people and life. With PageGroup there are opportunities to learn about new cultures and live the experience. 

Katherine Karlsen UK - South Africa

South Africa is very different from the UK, there are certain aspects of employment policy I had to overcome, but I find this makes it more exciting and it gave me a challenge. Johannesburg is known as the 'City of Gold' – as the gateway to Africa it provides you with further exposure to an emerging market. It really is an exciting place to recruit.

There is a great atmosphere in the office. The teams are motivated, passionate and diverse. There is a true sense of PageGroup culture here, with the added twist of South Africa.

Tamara Boonstra Netherlands - Indonesia

I was interested in the idea of international opportunities within the Group so started applying for a transfer. News came that the business was being launched in Jakarta, so I applied, got the job and moved here in January.

The best bit about moving is that it has taken me completely out of my comfort zone. I’m learning about a new culture and how to adapt in all sorts of situations – personally and professionally. Moving is definitely worthwhile. It has opened my mind and my eyes and given me space to explore and develop.

Simone Turola Italy - China

China is very different to Europe and the initial impact can be strong. It is important to have an open mind and see things with interest, curiosity and a sense of humour. Everyday can be a surprise, from the food to a new word that helps you in daily life to a new place to visit or a new person to meet.

I don’t know how many other companies can offer this level and variety of international opportunities; it’s a chance to build your future success. My only regret is that I should have done this earlier!
