Associate Director, Finance & Accounting
I’m a Marketing graduate from the University of South Australia. Started off my career in Pharmaceutical Sales before I stumbled upon recruitment by talking to a few friends in the industry and was immediately attracted to having more of a direct impact and influence in people’s lives.
Since then, I have developed strong knowledge and passion for talking to Finance & Accounting professionals in Malaysia by speaking to candidates of all levels, and organisations of all sizes. I believe I have an advantage over many recruiters in this space as I have progressed from recruiting junior accountants to recruiting Heads of Departments and Finance Directors in the past 4 years. I have also executed and led various recruitment assignments from individual contingency searches up to bulk recruitment projects.
Roles I Recruit For
I focus on mid to senior-level finance positions within the commerce industry in Malaysia, from Senior Finance Managers, Financial Controllers, to the C-Suite. My team recruits across the finance and accounting space - which includes FP&A, commercial finance, tax, treasury, and audit, within multinational corporations, local conglomerates, and SMEs.

I found her client engagement to be top-notch. She was pleasant to deal with and kept me well informed throughout each recruitment assignment.Client Testimonial
Jillian has been my go-to recruiter for our recent hires, and in the past year, she has placed a number of high-quality candidates we are happy with. She is very proactive and a true professional - extremely "switched on" and takes time to understand our requirements well. I really like that she also understands her candidates well, and is committed to ensuring a good match for both parties. She is also amazingly flexible to accommodate our tight timelines while delivering great results- I would strongly recommend Jillian as a recruitment partner.Client Testimonial
