'It feels like working with a Search firm but at a contingent price and cost structure...'
'For over ten years, KS has provided us with experienced employees for our offices in Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney and across the Middle East locations; they truly understand our international business and cultural needs...'
'It's about going the extra mile and you really feel it when working with a boutique firm like KS - they work so hard to deliver, they stay in touch, they know their markets, they are committed, confidential and responsive...'
The team who first built KS in 2007 in Singapore had a goal to build a recruitment firm based on values of integrity, loyalty and confidentiality. This was achieved and Singapore quickly grew to become a great business that supported our clients across APAC, working on searches mainly across business support functions.
With the success of APAC, we set our sights on the Middle East and opened an office in Dubai in January 2015 which extends our reach and offers additional global support to our clients. From here we can run more generalist professional role searches.
KS Search FZ LLC (UAE) and KS Consulting PTE Ltd (APAC) operate under the brand of the KS Talent Solutions Group.

Founder & Managing Partner
I have been a Financial Services recruiter for over fifteen years and prior to setting up KS in 2007, I worked for Hudson and Morgan McKinley.
I saw a gap in the market to build a boutique search business that focussed on quality rather volume and I am proud that we have achieved that and more. I am supported by a strong team of experienced and empowered women who thrive in our culture of being able to 'have it all' - our online systems and flexibility allow for time to be managed effectively around our clients and our families.
Delivery is my strength and having been with the KS group for nearly ten years, I have always specialised in Financial Services. I started my recruitment career in India before spending a year in Barcelona to study for my MBA in HR. I then joined KS in Singapore and have been instrumental in helping to build out business. Testimonial:
Our new employee had wonderful things to say about Komal and how she has been nurturing and transparent through the whole process. She certainly has felt that she’s been treated with excellent service.
Talent Manager, Singapore
In 2014 I joined KS for a brief period before starting my family. Because of the flexibility KS offers, I was able to re-join them and have been a Talent Manager for nearly three years.
Testimonial: ‘Manisha has the zeal and enthusiasm needed in recruitment. She is a very fast and keen learner.
She has an analytical mind and also has the ability to see the larger picture’.
