JOHN DENTON, COFOUNDER & EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR @ LEAD 8
Savvy have been a real breath of fresh air for our recruitment in Hong Kong: not only are they outstanding at what they do, they are also a pleasure to work with. From my first meeting with Savvy, I felt they understood our needs and our company culture, and every candidate they have proposed has been high calibre, on brief and a strong cultural fit for us. In addition, the Savvy team have been a great business partner, supporting us to build our network in Hong Kong’s creative community, always attentive and always – well – cool to have around.
DANIEL BEATTY, GENERAL MANAGER @ RED BULL GREATER CHINA
As a freelancer constantly on the hunt for jobs, Savvy never fails to surprise me with their great variety of job offers. They have helped me a lot in broadening my expertise. This certainly is not something I can achieve if I'm looking for job on my own. And for that I am truly thankful!

It’s been a lifesaver for our agency having a resource as Savvy Creative. Working with their talents helped us to reach our goals, always in a breeze.
GABRIELE ZANONI, DESIGN DIRECTOR & PARTNER @ BRANDING RECORDS
Savvy has consistently provided us with a strong calibre of candidates for our interviews - of whom are always very prepared for the interviews and tasks. They have often thought out-of-the-box to send strong candidates the tasks ahead of when we request, to speed up the process, or send us candidates we might be interested in, even if the role isn't available on our website - both super helpful! The contact with Savvy has been much more approachable and less pushy / formal than other recruiters. Above all, you guys have really taken the pain away from hiring and the process has been really great.
ALEXANDRA PRESTON-MORLEY, HEAD OF BRAND @ SUPERNOVA ASIA

IBRAHEEM YOUSSEF, CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Savvy never give up the hunt or the fight to help find the best talent. They also have the unique ability to throw more unique candidates into the hat that perhaps otherwise might have been overlooked. And because they’re established in Singapore and SE Asia, they seem to know practically everyone already. Savvy are also genuinely lovely people to deal with, and their enthusiasm for their job is quite infectious.
NIK BEDFORD, CREATIVE DIRECTOR @ COWAN SINGAPORE
Gensler Hong Kong and Savvy have been partners for a few years. They always provided the best first-hand information as well as planning ahead. It is wonderful to have this partnership.
VICTORIA TAM, OFFICE MANAGER @ GENSLER HONG KONG
Recruitment agencies that I have met in the past are usually quite cold and all about business. I found Savvy very different. Taking a sincere interest in my current priorities and pursuits in life, Savvy matched me up with a great employer within a matter of days. It was a match made in heaven as both the employer and myself hit it off right away. In just a week, I was offered an interesting role with a great agency. Savvy is truly a recruitment agency that goes the extra mile. They work fast, take great care of their candidates and are always dishing out precious nuggets of advice. Savvy is definitely the place to look for employees or employers in the creative industry.
JASMINE LEE, PRODUCER @ MOTION

QUINCY HO, FREELANCE GRAPHIC DESIGNER
I am extremely happy to be working with Savvy. Not only are the recruiters a pleasure to deal with, but I am submitted for opportunities that speak to my skill-set and are also amazingly compelling in many respects. The fact that they consistently follow up with me, which if you are looking for a job, is much appreciated, and something that doesn't seem to happen with other recruiters that I have dealt with. Ultimately, it is my recruiter's willingness to really go out and sell my strengths to a prospective employer that has sold me on the firm. Thanks Savvy!
STEVE MILLER, CROSS CULTURAL BRAND BUILDER & PUBLISHED WRITER

It can be really challenging navigating busy clients in Hong Kong.
