My background

I am an NTU Bachelor of Accountancy graduate. Prior to being attracted to the vision of Building Better Futures with Ambition as a Finance candidate in late 2012, I was, for a couple of years, with a Big 4 accounting firm and then in an entity controllership role with Barclays.

I have heartfelt thanks for Ambition giving me the chance to embark on a career in recruitment, and most importantly, make an impact on the lives of others and on the growth of businesses through a sound talent strategy.

What I do at Ambition

I provide tailored recruitment consultation to South East Asia businesses according to their needs and support them with their talent requirements. 

With a global presence and a strong regional support team, we have the ability to support volume hiring and tailored talent acquisition needs, and yet be nimble enough to be up close and personal with each and every business contact.

We share job market and industry knowledge with businesses to keep them abreast of regional markets. When it comes to your business needs, we listen. And that's important.

What my clients and candidates say about me

“Kai is one of the best recruiters I've seen. The way she worked with our business to understand what we needed, present a diverse slate of candidates, then help us fill our role was amazing. We filled a critical Finance role in two days! She is thorough, highly efficient, and follows up after hire to be sure there is a good fit. Kai is a recruiter that I trust, and would happily work with again.”- Senior VP Human Resource, U.S. media business

“I had the great opportunity to work with Kai. She brings a lot of energy to the table and is willing to go the extra mile to make things happen. The awesome thing about her is that she takes a long-term perspective on things and makes sure she creates the win-win situation for everyone.” - Head of Finance, IT software business

“Kai is very meticulous in ensuring a proper job fit between what the recruiting Company requires and how that matches the skill sets of the candidate. She also briefs the candidate adequately on the specific nature of the job and the reporting lines. She also follows up very quickly with the candidates on any concerns and questions that they might have to ensure that the entire recruitment process is expedited. I will highly recommend Kai Wei to both candidates and to talent acquisition teams of companies.”- Senior Regional Tax Manager, US IT business

“Kai Wei is very professional, she provides me with tips and advice on acing the interviews. She constantly updates me on the status throughout the recruitment process. I feel comfortable working with her as she listens and focuses on my requirements of my next career move before recommending me any roles she has on hand. I will definitely recommend her to friends who are looking for a new opportunity.” - Assistant Finance Manager, UK legal business

Outside of Ambition

Born a connector, in and out of work, Building Better Futures is definitely in my blood!

I am an avid volunteer in both the public and private sectors and found the vision of Ambition to be very in line with my personal one. Family and volunteering take up most of my time.

I also enjoy backpacking to rural countries to explore and experience life. Interacting and listening to interesting people keeps me engaged for hours too!
