Energizing Talent Acquisition

Kinetik brings an entirely fresh approach to the existing challenge of rapid up-scaling of digital teams and departments on an entirely scalable basis across the region.


Hiring On Demand

Our unique Hiring On Demand model provides Outsourced Talent Acquisition, specifically for the Digital sector. Our Consultants provide a high touch solution that reduces friction associated with conventional approaches to hiring, which also improves process visibility and candidate experience.


VLOGs - Insight on Demand


The Funnel

Our unique model focuses on bringing the very best industry knowledge and methodologies to key components of the ‘Hiring Funnel’:

Mapping and market analysis

Matching and long listing

Offer management & transition

Data capture & insights

Employer brand management

Requirements definition

Screening, interview process & testing

On-boarding & retention

Process optimisation and design




We put data at the centre of our solution, reflecting all stages of the hiring funnel. This enables us to work in closer collaboration with our clients to refine and improve processes, enabling us to reverse engineer success. All data collated from our hiring activities is proprietary to the client along with all associated conversions and insights, so we leave a lasting legacy benefit to clients once a project closes. We can also refer back to this data if we re-engage at a future date, in support of a continued long term partnership model.

Cost & Risk Management

Our simple fixed management fee approach is entirely predictable and projectable when compared to conventional hiring models and enables significant cost savings. Our model is also agile and risk mitigated to ensure appropriate proof of concept opportunity for our clients.

Game Designer

Our People

We have a team of highly experienced and capable talent acquisition professionals ‘on-demand’ to complement existing TA teams where extra resources are needed, or to bring fresh capacity to more start-up environments.


What our clients say…


Having worked with Kinetic over the last few months I've found their business model very interesting. It's been able to provide us with good value for money, a dedicated account manager and team that are both very knowledgeable in the areas of expertise we need. We were able to get a great shortlist of senior candidates for our Head of Development role, and were able to place one of the shortlisted candidates within two months, which is very fast for a senior role. We'll be more than happy to engage in future hiring windows with Kinetic.

Thomas Shearer

Head of Product Management & Operations - GradGreenhouse


Having heard a new way of hiring through outsourced talent acquisition, I decided to go with Kinetik for my latest hiring project. Kinetik's professionalism and high touch approach with both Homage and the candidates we were presented with was outstanding. They have played a fundamental role from the point of talent sourcing to the final offer stage, all in a short span of 3 months and with 10 headcounts filled during this period. I would highly recommend Kinetik.

PC (Pooi Chan) Gan

Country Manager - Homage


We have worked with Kinetik 6 months for our talent acquisition support and its been nothing but great. What has impressed me the most was how they were able to really understand Mindvalley's culture and values and as a result fulfil our hiring needs. It was also a unique experience working with them as they not only supported us in headhunting and sourcing but also on our overall recruitment operations. They manage to pick up the operation flow so fast and seamlessly integrated with our Mindvalley way of doing things. I also want to give a big shout out to YiXing and CaLing- who were the two recruiters on site with us, that were so pro-active and postive that they never needed to be micromanaged and we're alway on top of things. I hope to work with them more in the coming year.
