Senior P&C Executive will need to fulfil the executive role as well as support in areas: HR departmental development, Human Resources Information System (HRIS), academic & administrative staff recruitment cycle and provide supervision to the executives / assistants of the P&C Team.

My day starts at 8:00 am but I am usually in by 7:45 am so that I can get myself set up for the day. Between 8:00 and 8:30, it can be quite busy, with queries from the academic staff, as they will come to P&C before their lessons start. They may also come during their lunch, and after lessons finish at 3:30. Recruitment time is the busiest, most exciting and challenging time of the year, as I need to liaise with prospective teachers from all over the world. Coordinating their arrival makes the recruitment process challenging. As languages and cultures are different, sometimes it can be demanding, as they need support with all the steps and documents needed for their onboarding process, as per Singapore regulatory rules. At lunch time, since I didn’t bring any lunch today, the team eats in the cafeteria. After lunch, I work on the registration and arrangements for some teachers that are going to an overseas IBDP and IB PYP course. During international recruitment, time zones play a part, so I have to plan my day accordingly, and there are some things that are best done at the end of the day or late evening. I also take this time to answer emails and continue with paperwork as well as other outstanding matters.
