Redefining Recruitment Solutions Globally.


 It's always nice to be able to place candidates into jobs that they love. It's even better when we get to read their feedback...



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.

M.H. Pedersen , Europe & Asia Pacific

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.

J. Di Giovanni , Asia Pacific

Farstad Shipping have been utilising the services of Red Consulting for a number of years now, for recruiting various role in our Singapore office. We have developed a very good relationship with both Tracey Shearer and Henry Ferreira in their Singapore office and they have always provided great support and guidance throughout the recruitment process. Red keep us up to date throughout the recruitment period and also ensure candidates are kept engaged throughout the process as well. For those more challenging roles Red have aso been persistent in endeavouring to source the best candidates available.

Lucy Barker , Asia Pacific

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.
