Cynthia Shen

Principal Consultant

Cynthia brings a strength to recruitment from her years having worked as an Actuary. She knows what motivates actuaries, what inspires them and what their value propositions are so that she can align them with the type of roles which would fit best.

Because she has worked in both Singapore and Hong Kong most recently in pan-Asia roles, Cynthia has in-depth knowledge of the Asian actuarial market. This ensures that SKL’s clients looking for talent in their Asia-Pacific roles can gain access to partnerships with the right candidates from SKL’s global candidate talent pool. Cynthia leads searches with a strong focus on senior and middle management roles for actuarial executives, managers and senior actuaries.

When you seek her counsel, you can be assured that she will set reasonable expectations from an early stage and provide transparent communication benefits, whether you are speaking to her as a client or candidate. SKL and Cynthia believe that is the key to building mutually beneficial and long-lasting relationships amongst all parties. She thrives on receiving positive feedback from candidates and clients and knowing that the candidates she places are motivated in their new roles.

With her patience and enjoyment of utilising her problem-solving and communications skills to provide the best solutions and build long-term client and candidate relationships, you can talk to Cynthia wherever you may be in your career timeline.

Cynthia’s passion for working with individuals and organisations from various cultures and places is the additional element she brings to every discussion. In her spare time, Cynthia practices yoga and makes sure to give back to her community through being a keen community volunteer. She is an animal lover and her cat, adopted just prior to the COVID lockdown in Singapore, now keeps her company when she works from home.
