Co-Founder & Managing Director

NewChinaCareer.com / New China Careers Ltd

Hong Kong

I founded NewChinaCareer.com to solve a puzzling gap in China’s world of online recruitment and high-end employment. The site was entirely in English, thus its jobseekers must read the language. This made it attractive to companies seeking to recruit bilingual speakers. While a few of China’s major job boards accept English language postings, only NewChinaCareer was English-only.

At it’s peak, 20,000 job postings were listed and the site was visited by more than 60,000 job seekers per month.

Advertising companies included IBM, Microsoft, PwC, CB Richard Ellis, GE, Google, UBS, Applied Materials, Regus and hundreds of recruitment firms such as Michael Page, Charterhouse, Robert Walters and Hudson.
