  • Shulin is an outstanding headhunter who takes the time to get to know the candidate and is never transactional in her approach. Having worked with many other headhunters, what made Shulin stand out was that she provides tailored, personalised and honest advice, and never blindly pushes roles (like what many other headhunters do). Shulin takes the time and effort to consider whether the role is indeed suitable for a candidate (and vice versa), taking into account preference, lifestyle, experience and expectations, ensuring the best fit for both candidate and employer. Shulin also provides valuable insights of prospective firms and employers to candidates, which I have found to be very helpful. I am very appreciative of her guidance and support throughout my job-hunting process. Shulin's passion and drive as a headhunter astounds me and she's the only headhunter I trust to aid me in my job hunt. I never fail to recommend friends and colleagues who are in the market to her.

  • Shulin provides valuable personal insight on each role, apart from being familiar with usual market expectations. She offers helpful tailored guidance to prepare candidates for the interview process and is easily contactable to address any concerns (even outside usual work hours). Shulin is very warm, approachable and seems to take care that candidates are placed in a role that candidates will be happy with in the long term. Shulin really takes the time to understand each candidates' personality and preferences - so that she can select roles that are most well suited. She seems to be similarly dedicated on the employers' end too, as she is able to provide insights on potential employers' expectations and working style as well. Shulin its a truly outstanding, trustworthy headhunter. Highly recommended.

  • I have worked with Helen Ng both at ANSA Search and when she was with her previous firms. She is professional and responsive.  She takes time to understand the needs of the client and diligently sources for the best available candidates in the market.  She clearly puts the needs of the client first and does not push candidates that are not suitable. I would highly recommend her to the other hiring managers in my company.

  • Shulin listens very carefully to client briefings, checks to ensure clarity of what she has heard, and makes helpful suggestions at every step of the way. She provides candidates in a timely manner who meet the brief she has been given. She provides very insightful comments on the candidates and does a very good job to sell the company she is representing to potential candidates. I would strongly recommend Shulin.

  • Shulin Lee and her team at Ansa Search were excellent to work with throughout our recruitment process in 2019 and 2020 as we hired a APAC region legal counsel. Shulin took the time at the beginning of the relationship to learn about our company and its place within the medical device industry. This knowledge, coupled with her understanding of the expectations of the open position, enabled her to target her search and propose excellent candidates.  All of the candidates proposed by Shulin had compelling backgrounds and were capable of filling the open position. Our task was then to identify which candidate was the strongest. Shulin’s thorough understanding of the Singapore legal market was invaluable as we considered the finalists and negotiated aspects of the compensation package.  In addition to deep industry expertise, Shulin possess excellent interpersonal skills and social sense which enabled her to identify intangible attributes in candidates. The combined industry expertise and human touch exceeded our expectation in the search process. We strongly recommend Shulin Lee and Ansa Search to any company (domestic or multi-national) searching for legal candidates in Singapore.
