Sicilia Tjandra, who heads up Monroe Indonesia’s Professional Division for the banking, finance and insurance industries, said the Chief Operations Officer job was an exciting opening with an innovative and rapidly expanding social enterprise that delivered solutions to address poverty. “Our client is looking for a candidate with a strong background in operations, supply chain and agronomy, who must have more than 7 years operational management experience in agriculture,” Sicilia said. “Experience in financial planning and analysis, including budget and resource development, and strategic planning, are also crucial factors.”
She said applicants for the General Manager Marketing job should have extensive experience in branding, communications, promotions and events, particularly above-the-line (ATL) activities. “Candidates with a multinational FMCG background who can best demonstrate proven track records in ATL activities are most welcome,” she said. “Fluency in English and being professionally presentable are also musts.”
For the National Director job with a non-governmental agency (NGO) that focused on child development, Monroe Indonesia was seeking expatriate candidates for openings in Indonesia, East Timor and Sri Lanka, Sicilia said. “The winning candidates will be responsible for the overall operations of the NGO within Indonesia, East Timor or Sri Lanka,” she said. “Expatriates are invited to apply for these positions, which are senior roles with a respected organization. Only candidates of the highest professional standings, reputations and integrity should apply.”
Speaking about the banking, finance and insurance industries in general, Sicilia said the economic downturn had impacted on several sectors, notably banking and financing for heavy equipment, which had coincided with a downturn in the oil and gas, and mining industries.
On the other side of the equation, the financing sector was buoyant, “especially for consumer or micro-financing,” she said. “This is supported by spending among middle-level income consumers in Indonesia who must be continuously up-to-date with new technologies and lifestyle trends.”
In addition to micro-financing, intelligent information, insurance and start-up companies in multiple sectors, including law firms and IT Services, were helping drive Monroe Consulting Group’s Professional Division, accounting for 20 percent of all job placements.
“We have seen a lot of companies in a number of industries place a freeze on their respective recruitment processes in light of the prevailing economic situation, including the banking industry,” Sicilia said. “This provides further justification for Monroe Indonesia’s decision to begin to pull away from the banking sector and focus on key growth areas, including financial services and insurance, for example.”
She said Monroe was continuing to maintain its focus on executive-level employees needed by leading multinational and national companies operating in Indonesia. “Our team of specialised consultants keep ahead of other recruitment companies by staying up-to-date with the latest industry trends and news, and know what is happening behind-the-scenes,” she said. “We can help any business source the right talent to help improve and grow operations.”
