Jay set up SearchElect with the foundation of his passion for building. He thinks beyond skin surface and has never-ending curiosity on how things build and operate. He loves working with people and have innate social skills that compliment the industry perfectly. Jay’s recipe for building SearchElect are these passions, along with his desire for excellence and continual improvement to deliver a recruitment service which was superior and met the needs of an evolving market.

He started working very early in his family business where he developed insight into the commitment and responsibility of running a business. His first real job was in banking; after 4 years he moved into recruitment and felt at home easily as it was a business with flat hierarchy and growth was driven through meritocracy. He then spent 6 years recruiting in the UK and subsequently 9 years recruiting in Singapore across both contract and permanent recruitment exclusively within the tech market.

What is switch off mode for Jay? Hopping onto his sofa for a marathon of Daredevil, Mad Men, Narcos, Game of Thrones, and the list goes on...
