Why is Michael Page different?

There are three main differences:

1. Our people

We spend a significant amount of time during our interview process trying to get to know the real 'you'. Our interviewing process enables us to assess your ability to work in teams, which is integral to your success at Michael Page.

Unlike most of our competitors, we DON'T pay you on commission. Our collaborative approach is unique in the recruiting industry and offers great benefits to you. Everyone works together as a team - NOT as a collection of individuals. All information regarding clients and candidates is shared, thereby improving our individual and team results.

Compared to industry standards, we have a dramatically lower turnover of personnel because people feel comfortable within our environment, are well remunerated, and have access to new career challenges in Singapore and overseas.

2. Our specialisation

We are great believers in specialisation and focus, because we recognise that by dedicating all our financial and human resources to a particular market niche and then working on being the best in that niche, gives us a huge competitive advantage. This specialisation is reflected in Singapore through our focus on our specialist divisions:


  • Accounting
  • Banking
  • Digital
  • Engineering & Manufacturing
  • Healthcare and Life Sciences
  • Human Resources
  • IT
  • Legal
  • Marketing
  • Oil and Gas
  • Procurement & Supply Chain
  • Property & Construction
  • Retail
  • Sales
  • Secretarial & Office Support


3. Our recruitment methodology


Upon obtaining a thorough understanding of what our client's particular recruitment needs are, we put together a tailored recruitment solution, which may be a combination of searching our candidate database, advertising and/or targeted search/headhunting.

We maintain an extensive database of candidates and we invest heavily in this database to ensure that you, as a consultant and therefore your clients, have access to the best candidates in the marketplace. We train you thoroughly to use this database effectively to beat our competitors on the quality of introduction and speed of service. Further, we have a team of dedicated researchers to network across the marketplace in order to identify the best candidates for even the most difficult searches.
