SapientNitro appoints APAC hiring lead

SapientNitro has appointed Silvia Robertson as hiring lead for Asia Pacific.

Robertson (pictured) will be directly reporting to Kristina Shedd, SapientNitro's global director of hiring.

Robertson will be a part of the agency's upcoming initiatives of launching a full-fledged internship programme. Her role will have her strive to assemble and maintain a valued hiring team to attract diverse talent across the agency's regional offices in Australia, China, Hong Kong and Singapore.

She has 10 years of recruitment experience with expertise in creative, media and advertising technology fields. Formerly the managing director for Singapore at the London-based creative recruitment agency Nakama, Robertson led its business and team over a period of two and a half years.

Shedd said, "Robertson's knowledge of the APAC market, combined with her deep expertise in recruiting and sourcing talent, will strengthen our position to attract the best talent."

"SapientNitro is one of the few rare organisations that heavily invests in bringing together a dynamic pool of people and empowering them to make an impact within the global organisation," Robertson said.
