Working smart is better than working hard, and I think our transparent bonus criteria is great for high performers that work smart.
Our bonuses are individual yet we have a strong team mentality. We share opportunities. We have a healthy competitive approach and we collaborate a lot.
There’s a big focus on quality rather than pushing through deals. We invest big on hiring smart people so we can solve problems as well as achieve results.
There’s a perfect balance: I feel independent but well-supported by my team. I love the clarity on where your focus is.
I feel empowered to succeed with the transparent bonus scheme, enthusiastic leaders, and a culture of integrity, responsibility and collaboration.
My success at Hudson is due to the truly supportive culture – my managers believe in me and help me to succeed.
My background is in sales and when I started in recruitment I soon realised there’s a massive feel-good factor: you’re not selling a product, you’re telling someone that they’ve got the job of their dreams. It’s an amazing feeling.
I worked in Enterprise IT insurance sales in the UK before moving to Hong Kong in 2016. Someone suggested that I could be good in recruitment, so I did some research and found Hudson. Hudson had an attractive brand and great office location. My interviewers were very clear on their vision for the business and how I could be a part of it. I felt confident that they would be able teach me to be a strong recruiter.
Within just 12 months of joining the business and the industry, I became one of the top 3 billers and won the Individual Contributor Star Award. I was promoted twice in less than a quarter, and it was a proud moment again when my first hire (a fresh graduate) hit productivity and earned a bonus in his first quarter in recruitment.
As well as the great team culture – collaborative, respectful, success-driven and jovial – I really enjoy working on very senior recruitment processes and meeting high performing candidates and clients.
I’d been in the finance industry for a few years and wanted a change. I was attracted to Hudson as the management team provided me with honest details on the steps involved to becoming an established consultant, and the highs and lows of the role.
Through endurance, resilience and wonderful team support, I’ve been able to stretch myself and become a more strategic consultant with every quarter that goes past. I feel proud when I’ve been able to utilise the training I’ve had to be independent in attaining a role, shortlisting and making a placement on my own. However, I’m most proud of the times when we’ve worked together as a team towards a big win.
When you join Hudson, you don’t join a firm, you join a family. You’re surrounded by people who want you to succeed and who want you to grow. This is the same wherever you are – I know because I started my Hudson career in Singapore, before transferring to the Hong Kong office!
I was a fresh graduate when I joined Hudson in 2014. I had 6 other offers but chose Hudson because I was inspired by the leaders, and wanted to work in an environment where I could determine my earning potential with my hard work.
It’s a genuine meritocracy here, and that’s allowed me to be successful. I put in the hard work to achieve my targets and goals, and have been rewarded with a number of promotions over the years.
Brick by brick, I built the Financial Services practice from scratch. I take pride in what our practice is today – some of the numbers my consultants bill were unheard of five years ago. From continuing to develop and nurture my team, to helping the Hong Kong office break records, there’s a lot to look forward to here at Hudson.
I started my career at Hudson in Beijing, where I built up the Financial Services HR practice from scratch and won a Rising Star Award in just six months. After two and a half years I felt ready for a change and left. However, after a few months at a competitor in Beijing, I was given a great opportunity to come back to Hudson, and in an exciting move I relocated to Hong Kong.
Along with the transparent commission policy, it’s inspiring to be working with people leaders who have a strong vision of the future and are always enthusiastic. I feel empowered to succeed within the culture of integrity, responsibility, transparency and collaboration.
Going forward, I’m looking forward to improving my billings and creating even more impact in the market. My goal is to make Hudson the top choice in Financial Services recruitment.

Hudson have been the no.1 supplier of project resources and this is due to each consultant knowing their specific verticals and in turn providing us with strong candidates that match the brief in a timely manner.

I’m looking for and translate that experience into candidates who are a perfect fit for the role on offer.
Hudson has always helped our team find the best candidates for all our roles. I’ve asked the consultants’ opinion about a few of the candidates they sent through and they were valuable when making the final decision of hiring.
The team at Hudson were able to quickly grasp what we were looking for and put forward a great group of candidates. The process was fast and transparent throughout. Most importantly, we are really happy with the outcome and are now well on our way to reshaping the way we communicate with and deliver our products to our clients.
Hudson has assisted me on numerous roles where I required assistance from a HR perspective. Your consultants strive to make sure they are producing professional and high quality work for each and every client.
Hudson was very much on the pulse of the job market. Information that is accurate and timely is so important to job seekers.
