We present this exclusive opportunity to partner a European-headquartered multinational firm to appoint their Rewards & Workforce Strategies Manager for the Southeast Asia region. With a longstanding legacy spanning approximately two centuries, our client operates out of a global network of assets crosscutting finance, freight, commodities trading among other sectors. The business continues to be driven by the higher order goal of achieving sustainable practices despite boasting a workforce size exceeding 20,000 employees spread over more than 100 countries. Through acute revenue diversification strategies, outposts located in Southeast Asia in particular have grown exponentially in FY2021. To ensure that their rewards and workforce structures remain current/competitive as business in the region continues to scale rapidly, the client is looking for a dedicated Human Resources practitioner who can deliver such strategies in a relevant and consistent manner. This role is based in Singapore.

Reporting into the Regional Head of HR, the successful individual will assume responsibilities that extend across four key practice areas: i) compensation; ii) HR systems; iii) mobility and; iv) benefits. Compensation and workforce planning processes (e.g. running annual cycles including bonus, job grading, budgeting etc.) would make up the bulk of the portfolio, primarily through the use of various Workday tools which explains why HR systems make up an equally significant aspect of the role. As the only Rewards practitioner operating in a regional capacity within the Southeast Asian HR team, you will be the Subject Matter Expert who provides guidance to the pool of in-country specialists. This role would likewise take cue from the global CoE team to implement process improvement projects for the region, such as leveraging on Cloud technologies to centralise and align Rewards practices across countries. Put simply, this role is both strategic and hands-on in nature.

The role will require someone with at least 6 years of consulting and corporate inhouse compensation/Rewards experience, ideally with strong HR systems knowledge. Individuals who have been based in either highly matrix organisations or firms overseeing a portfolio of brands will be looked upon favourably. Due to the multifaceted nature of the job scope, the ability to partner multiple internal and external stakeholders, as well as build cooperative and strategic relationships would be key drivers of success.

Thanks for your time. Please apply to find out more about this role or reach out to Janard LIEW at for a confidential discussion.
