Dear Miss Koh,

It is with great enthusiasm that I am submitting my application for the HR Executive role at Gradiant. I believe that my relevant skills and experiences will make me a suitable candidate for this position.

I am currently working as a HR and Recruitment Administrator at Costello Medical where I oversee various roles in the Singapore office from job postings, screening of candidates, conducting of telephone interviews and the reviewing of various assessments. As the sole HR staff in the Singapore office, I am also responsible for the creation of offer materials, employment contracts and for completing the new starter process such as accounts creation, insurance enrolment and employment pass application for foreign employees.

I have worked closely with our global HR team based in the United Kingdom for the launch of our flexible working and early finishes policies, flexible benefits scheme, employee assistance programme and projects such as the analysis of our annual employee survey results, annual insurance renewal and annual bonus round. I also had the chance to manage and attend various virtual and onsite career fairs to attract prospective new employees, which required a close collaboration with our scientific colleagues and internal design team to produce the relevant printed recruitment materials.

Prior to my transition to the HR role in Costello Medical, I have been working as a Personal Assistant to the co-heads of the Singapore office and this has also given me the opportunity get exposed to a wide variety of office operations duties which I am still currently managing. Some examples would be the day-to-day management of the Singapore office, basic IT support, assisting with our recent office move, facilitating the office movements during Covid lockdown and the gradual return-to-work preparations as well as the organising of office activities such as a physical and virtual Christmas party. I have also taken on the line management of two Personal Assistants which has further honed and proven my ability to take on multiple roles effectively with the help of my organisational and prioritisation skills.

I am thrilled at the possibility of being part of Gradiant, a company with great minds and technologies and one who places great emphasis on culture and values, creating a positive and politics-free environment. I very much look forward to further developing my HR and recruitment skills and knowledge with Gradiant.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review and consider my application.

Best regards,
Pearlyn
