Testimonials

​I would like to thank TENTEN for the professional and great advice offered to me during the placement in my new position. Their advice was invaluable and ultimately helped me to make the right decision. If I'm ever looking to change positions again I will definitely reach out.

Head of Technology Solutions Major Consulting Leader

TenTen have been our go-to recruiter for the past few years. Not only because they deliver high-quality candidates but because we trust their opinion; negotiating flexibility with a candidate? They will tell you. Requirements unrealistic? They will tell you!

It is this additional advisory and honesty that sets them apart from the usual search companies. Rarely do you feel that fostering a relationship is a priority in recruitment but with TenTen you really do."

 

Head, Risk & Compliance PMO International Bank

Luke and his team helped me realise a long term ambition of mine to migrate with my family from the UK to Asia - Singapore.  It took a little while for the ‘right’ role to present itself but throughout, Luke was privy to numerous opportunities demonstrating significant reach into the Singapore market.

His personable character was key to building confidence and his industry experience provided important steer at key times.

I would highly recommend the team at TENTEN partners to anyone considering taking the leap into Asia."

Programme Test Manager International Bank

Working with TenTen is an experience I will forever cherish. TenTen is no ordinary headhunting firm, they differentiate themselves by providing personalised service, put the aspiration of the candidate first and are about building a lasting relationship with the candidate. TenTen put a lot of effort into getting to know me, what I do, what I enjoy, where I am with my career, and what I want to do. One thing I will not easily forget is the follow-up and catch-up after I started in my new role. Just shows TenTen's resolve in building a relationship."

TENTEN and I worked together in my recent career enhancement move and if I have to sum up the experience in one word, then it would be just fantastic! No flab, just precise communication and professional elan to handle senior experienced executives. A crisp and willing to walk the extra mile attitude make them a perfect ally. Thank you"

Project Manager Singapore Bank

Luke and Esther at TenTen are the clear go-to organisation in Asia for anyone wanting to attract and recruit top technology talent into their organisation. They have an excellent grasp on the domain they work in and, unlike their competition, quickly revert with an excellent short list of high quality candidates.

I have known them both for over 10 years having worked with them both extensively whilst I was in Singapore. On a number of occasions, they were instrumental in helping me as I went about building high quality, high performing teams across Asia.

They build strong lasting relationships with clients and are well connected across the globe (at all levels). They operate in a very discreet and professional manner in everything they do.

I can't rate them highly enough."

I look forward to working with Luke again in the future"

She also recognised that HR partnership is key and therefore constantly communicates with me. I highly recommend her services.”

I have just started a contract with BDO Bank in the Philippines and the only reason I got approached for this role was through Luke’s contacts. I very quickly developed a trusting relationship with Luke and I have referred a number of friends and colleagues who are looking for a new role to him.
