Division Leader, Legal
I have had the best experience with Calico Asia’s recruiters during my job hunt. They were always reassuring and helpful to me, and were very understanding of the challenges that a candidate faced, informing me promptly of any progress or news. They had great teamwork amongst themselves, often linking me up with their colleagues if there was anything that might be of interest to me. This helped to widen the pool of possible job listings that I was able to try for. I highly recommend their sincere and genuine service to anyone who’s looking for a job or who just wants to find out what’s out there in the market. Kudos to Lyn, Sandra, Lynette, Mandy and wishing you all the best in the year ahead!

I’m extremely grateful for having Calico Asia as my recruiter. Without them, I’d probably still be stuck at my previous job with very little career prospects. Now, I’m on board at the new company and I’m very happy with it. I’m truly excited as it provides much greater career prospects. Lyn, along with her staffs, Lynette and Mandy provide top-notch quality! They’re prompt in setting up interviews and they provide useful tips on how to perform well in the interviews. After each round of interview, they never failed to call in to follow up with me. They are really sincere and caring. Lyn didn’t stop providing her service after I accepted the offer. Few days prior to my first day at work, she texted me and I could feel her supportive and encouraging spirit! After few days at work, she texted again to follow up with me with questions such as “How is the new job? How is the new place?” She goes beyond and above to make sure I’m doing well. Again, I’m very thankful and blessed for having Calico Asia as my recruiter. It’s highly recommended! Thank you!
It has been a pleasant experience working with Calico. The representatives I dealt with were professional and efficient, and responded to my queries promptly. They demonstrated sound market and industry knowledge and were able to provide appropriate advice when required. In addition, their friendly and approachable manner made me feel at ease, right from the initial meeting. I would recommend their services to any professional looking for a change in their career.

I have had my share of bad experiences with recruiters, and was pleasantly surprised by my experience with Calico. I was eventually placed in my current role by Mandy – who was involved in every aspect of the entire process from the start to the very end. That said, I can truly say that every single one of the Calico recruiters that I have had the pleasure of dealing with throughout my job search has been similarly pro-active, professional and responsive. Calico is definitely one of the best in the market!
Calico is one of the most professional agencies I’ve had the privilege of working with. I found them to be pro active, professional and informative. I really appreciate the time and effort they took to understand my work experience, skills and career path that I wanted to embark on. Other than that I am grateful for their insights on the prospective job openings and their knowledge on the industry that they’re serving. They’re definitely a class above the rest and I would not hesitate to recommend them to my friends.
I was looking for in-house roles when Lyn approached me on LinkedIn offering to assist in my job-hunting. She (and her colleague, Sandra) were very helpful and took the time to find out the type of role that I was interested in. Being new to the recruitment process, I had many queries which Lyn and Sandra patiently addressed. I succeeded in securing a job through Calico Asia very soon after our first contact, notwithstanding the tight job market. Even after I started work, Sandra took the time to follow up with me on whether I was settling in well in my new job. I would definitely recommend Calico Asia to employment-seekers for their professional and dedicated services.
Sandra is a proactive, knowledgeable and easily contactable recruiter. She took time to discuss my experience and career objectives beforehand and tailored the job-search to suit my needs. The comprehensive pre-interview briefing and advice from Sandra gave me the confidence and information necessary to get me through the interview. Her follow up after each application and interview is equally admirable. I would highly recommend Sandra and Calico Asia
I had the privilege of dealing with Lynette, who was extremely pro-active and efficient. From start to finish, Lynette kept herself attuned to my needs and concerns, and often had already addressed them before I myself could raise them to her. Even after my employment was secured, Lynette went the extra mile by continuing to follow up with me and checking that I was settling in well at my new job. It was unexpected personal professionalism, and I’m very glad to have met with Lynette and received her assistance. I would recommend Calico Asia, and Lynette in particular, to anyone looking for a new position.
Senior Executive, Secretariat
Calico, from the get-go, has provided personalised and intuitive service from the point of initial contact to job acceptance. Mandy has taken the trouble to get to know me and has given me constructive advice on excelling on the job interviews and a lot of moral support. It has been a pleasure compared to my previous experiences with dealing with other recruiters, who did not show the same zeal and commitment that Mandy and Calico showed me.
Senior Legal Counsel
I am very glad to have had a chance to work with Mandy. She is very professional and is willing to share valuable insights about the legal industry which is very useful for candidates. I am also impressed with Mandy’s genuine interest in ensuring the best match for both the employer and the candidate.
This was my first time working with Calico, and the company was recommended by a friend in the legal industry. I would like to thank Mandy for her professionalism and her prompt and efficient work in landing me this position at a Japanese MNC. Travel opportunities, a good salary package and a great boss, I couldn’t be more pleased with the job. Thanks!
Head of Human Resources
Sandra was highly efficient and professional in her approach and we are most grateful for the high calibre of candidates that were presented. We will most certainly be in touch if there is a need for additional legal resources.
Legal Counsel, Vietnam
Oil & Gas
I would highly recommend Calico Asia as a professional team of competent consultants. Lyn is extremely dedicated in her work and her market knowledge and guidance has successfully led me to secure my role.
Mandy has been following up with me on potential job opportunities for over a year. She is very quick to recognise my underlying potential and job suitability. She ensured that I was not short-changed in my new placement. She constantly stayed in touch with me, to provide updates on my new placement as well as also to ensure I was smoothly transitioning out of my then role. She is more than just a headhunter! I greatly appreciate her efforts in building good relationships with her clients and candidates.
Technology & Telecoms
I have spoken to most of the Calico team and one thing’s for sure, this team is impressive across the board. Being insightful, responsive and strategic in thinking are fundamental traits that the Calico team excel at. But above all, they are warm and genuine professionals. Execution wise, Calico exceeded expectations with deft negotiation skills and never once made it seem that my interests were not important. I am very happy to recommend this team.
Engineering & Construction
I have had the pleasure of working with Calico Asia and find that they are one of few recruitment professionals that take the time to understand the goals and aspirations of a candidate and by doing so, they are able to recommend specialization specific roles for consideration. The time Calico Asia had taken to understand the needs of candidates sets them apart from other recruitment professionals and their approach allows candidates to concentrate on suitable roles to ensure that the process be both effective and fulfilling.
Sr. Director & Sr. Corporate Counsel
Asia Pacific, Infotechnology
I would like to provide some feedback regarding the recruitment support provided by Calico Asia. The consultant took the time to fully understand our business, and our particular needs with regards to a candidate we were recruiting, based in Singapore, earlier this year. One thing that sets Calico apart from other firms is that as a result of understanding our needs, they were able to refer to me a range of candidates of a high standard, with very relevant expertise in the areas of importance to us. I will definitely use the firm’s services again for future recruitment needs.
Deputy General Counsel
The Calico team stands out among executive search firms with its professionalism, sincerity and personalised service. I enjoyed meeting and getting to know the Calico team, who genuinely cared about getting to know their candidates and their career aspirations. I would be more than happy to work with them again in future.
