Jay started his journey within the technology recruitment industry for a London based blue-chip company in 2004. He focused on placing specialist technology contractors across Software, Automation and BA/PM. In 2009, Jay accepted the opportunity to move to Singapore to work in the emerging Asian market to start up and grow a technology recruitment business. In 2011, Jay founded SearchElect to cater for the rapidly expanding and transforming technology market across Asia from Singapore.

To date, Jay has over 15 years of specialist technology recruitment experience across both European and Asian markets helping SME and MNC clients across a large range of business sectors.
