GrowthOps Asia appoints new Talent Acquisition Head

GrowthOps Asia welcomed Shakira Pathmarajah as its new Talent Acquisition Head, managing recruitment in GrowthOps for Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the Philippines, as well as remote hiring in India.

Shakira has more than a decade of experience in technology recruitment with a broad experience in digitised recruitment systems, such as SAP SuccessFactors, Workday, Hirevue, and Taleo.   

She brings with her a gamut of HR best practices like ensuring the utilisation of standardised “hiring etiquette” for managers to use during and post interviews. 

Shakira holds a degree in Psychology from Upper Iowa University and started her career at Deloitte where she managed end-to-end recruitment including SEA Directors. 

She then joined the Asian Football Confederation, SapuraKencana Petroleum Berhad, Webe Digital, and Maxis where she took charge of all recruitment processes.

GrowthOps managed to increase gender balance by 2%, moving from 40% female to 42%, in an industry where the average is 32% – 5 female leaders were also recently shortlisted for this year’s WIICTA Women in ICT Awards.
