Our experienced team of expert recruiters are here to help you solve your professional staffing challenges

Eric Ho

Eric found his start in recruitment in a slightly unusual environment - his best friend’s mother’s birthday party. After striking up a friendly conversation with a HR Director from the Gattaca group, Eric followed up with a CV - and the rest, as they say, is history.

7.5 years after that birthday party, Eric is a recruitment expert specialising in Procurement, Supply Chain, Commercial Contract Management, and Trade Compliance. He enjoys working with a wide variety of different clients and candidates and is passionate about solving recruitment problems with his expertise and technical knowledge.

Outside of recruitment, Eric enjoys Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and badminton. He also loves travelling and is an avid foodie - which makes sense, as his parents are chefs, so he grew up surrounded by gourmet multi-cultural food!
