Happy Chinese New Year 2017!

The Year of the Rooster
It's the lunar New Year, and around the world millions of people have been gathering with families for two weeks of celebrations to welcome in the year of the Rooster!

The Chinese New Year which is also know was the Spring Festival celebrations started on 28th January and will traditionally be marked with the giving of gifts and celebrations with family, as well as considering what the sign of the Rooster will mean for the year ahead.

When is Chinese New Year, and Why Does The Date Change Every Year?
The Year of the Rooster began on 28th January and celebrations started on the 27th January and will last for around two weeks, making this the longest holiday in the Chinese calendar.

Based on the lunar calendar, The Chinese New Year takes place on a different date every year and always falls between the end of January and the middle of February.

What Animal Represents This Year?
As we know each Chinese year is denoted by a different symbol from a 12 year animal zodiac, with this year being matched to the tenth sign, which is the year of the Rooster.

How is Chinese New Year celebrated?
Chinese New Year is celebrated with the ringing of bells, and watching traditional lion dances.

The Spring Festival celebration is seen as an important date, with families gathering together for a reunion dinner. Firecrackers are then let off to signal the end of last year and the beginning of next.

Client testimonials

We have worked closely with Red on the recruitment of specialist positions within the chemical tanker industry. Red has proved to be a valuable partner in recruitment of specialists, as they have specific knowledge and understanding of the shipping industry.

When partnering with Red, I have particularly valued their dedication and commitment to finding the right candidate for the job, but also their direct, open and honest style of communication.

Red was engaged by my company to help source critical staff required for a new office startup in Singapore. This task was unique in that skilled shipping and logistics professionals had to be shortlisted, interviewed and contracted with complete privacy of the company’s entry into Singapore.

I am very happy with the team hand-picked from the market and headhunted by Red and look forward to assigning them our next human resource assignment.

Working with Red was an absolute pleasure. From start to finish they were helpful, supportive and able to quickly source quality candidates. We were on a tight timescale and needed capable staff quickly - even over a holiday period in Singapore, Red were able to assist us and we were able to hire excellent candidates through them.

James Meredith , Singapore


Red did an amazing job finding the most suitable candidates. Furthermore, they did even more amazing job in 'filtering' the candidates and provide a very detailed and accurate analysis.

I strongly recommend Red and there is no doubt that we will work again soon.
