    Advice on Job Search


    I have recently moved to Hong Kong and was hoping that people with a better understanding of how this place works would be able to help me with a problem.

    I moved across from the UK a couple of weeks ago on a secondment for 2-3 years. I desparately want to get my girlfriend to move out here with me but whether this happens will be a function of what she can find by way of meaningful employment. I was hoping somebody would be able to offer some words of advice on how she should go about looking. Are there good/large generic recruitment agencies? Is the use of specialist recruiters/headhunters common here and if so, would anyone be able to recommend some good ones?

    By means of background, she has four years of good work experience in sales & marketing in London. Most of this experience has been within the events/business tourism space but she is certainly open to looking outside this area.

    On a more general point. Is it generally possible for someone in her situation to find an employer willing to organise the necessary work visa?

    Any help will be very gratefully received!

    Might be an idea for her to apply to the Recruitment companies them selfs as a trainee role. If she is smart, presentable and outgoing she might have some luck with them who will also sponsor her
