Our History

Target Recruitment’s history begins in 2015 when there was an urgent gap in the recruitment sector for niche specialist roles in the IT and shipping fields. Over the course of the past 5 years, Target recruitment has expanded its spectrum of job covering positions and seeks to be a preeminent “specialist firm for recruitment and placement of office, management, professional and executive staff” here in Singapore over the next 3 years.

It has also grown from a one man company to a full service recruitment team of 24 staff with a full suite of backend support services that spans assessment & research, IT support and marketing divisions on top of its client servicing, recruitment and management divisions.

Despite its growth and expansion, their core focus and mission of “Target issues, Accurate solutions, Precise results” has not wavered. This mission to its stakeholders of clients, staff and the public is driven by Target’s values of care, determination and service.

Translating its intangible mission, values and culture into visible results, Target has increased its number of clients from just a handful to more than 5000 active clients over the years, a 1000 fold increase year on year with our company’s revenue and profits remaining in a healthy range in spite of the business uncertainties and increasing competition faced in the past 2 years. Over the years, we are humbled to have received awards and accolades such as being “an excellent service provider and a great asset [to our organisation]” that encapsulates our achievements. Above all, our clients continue to be our primary purpose for our existence and their acknowledgement of praise and warm words of support inspire us to work harder and serve them better.
