My Background
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 the shared services landscape in Malaysia by speaking to candidates of all levels, and organizations of all sizes. I believe I have an advantage over many recruiters in this space as I have progressed from recruiting junior accounts executives and progressed upwards towards recruiting Heads of Functions to Shared Service Directors in the past 4 years. I have also executed and led various recruitment assignments from individual contingency searches up to bulk recruitment projects. I’m an experienced people manager and hope to further my experience in this area as I love to see people grow in the business. 

Roles I Recruit For
I focus on mid to senior level finance positions within the shared services industry in Malaysia, from Managers up to Directors of Shared Services. My team focuses on Accounts Executives (AP, AR, GL) up to Team Leaders across all Finance & Accounting sub-disciplines.

Examples of roles:
Finance Shared Service Director
PTP Director / Manager
OTC Director / Manager
RTR Director / Manager
FP&A Director / Manager
Financial Reporting Director / Manager
Management Accounting Director / Manager
Treasury Director / Manager
Statutory Reporting & Taxation Director / Manager
Internal Audit Director / Manager
Product Costing Manager

What My Clients and Candidates Say About Me

"Jillian has been my go-to recruiter for our recent Finance Shared Service 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."

"I found her client engagement to be top-notch. She was pleasant to deal with and kept me well informed throughout each recruitment assignment."
