Having spent the majority of his career in London, Sital is currently based in Singapore working with the recruitment team of a global technology firm.
Unlike many other recruitment and career professionals, Sital has seen the hiring cycle from every angle – both in good times and bad.
As a commercial leader during the boom and bust years at the UK retailer Marks & Spencer. As a financial services recruiter in London during the downturn after 9/11. As an in-house recruiter with global firms in a buoyant job market. As a speaker and advisor to leading business schools. And and as a career expert helping a variety of professionals find new roles through the recent recession.
He consequently has a real appreciation of what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to finding and retaining talent during times of change. And the key to helping individuals find new career opportunities in a challenging market.
Sital has been a frequent guest on BBC Radio offering career advice and job search tips to listeners. And a guest author to several leading online publications including eFinancial Careers and Career Hub. Some of his career advice has subsequently been featured in The Financial Times and BusinessWeek.
Away From Work
Sital enjoys making stuff up: he is a trained comedy improviser from one of London’s leading theatre companies and has performed in a number of amateur improvisation shows.
As a lifelong fan of Liverpool Football Club (and a foolish optimist), he is desperately hoping that next season Liverpool will go onto win the football league for the first time in over 20 years!
