An eye for talent: Filzah Ruzamil

18 May 2018

It has been a strong 2018 so far for TMF Group’s Asia Pacific recruitment team, bringing home a total of three awards in the first quarter alone.

The nine-strong team are based across Asia Pacific, supporting TMF Group’s growing business needs in the region. For Filzah Ruzamil, a Sub-Regional Recruiter, being recognised as ‘In-House Recruitment Professional Of The Year’ at the recently-held HR Asia Recruitment Awards 2018 is one of the highlights of her three-year journey with TMF Group.

Coming from an executive search firm background, Filzah admits that she had placed herself at ground zero when she first dived into her role with TMF Group’s global internal recruitment team. She has slowly adapted to the growing global business.

“Joining TMF Group really broadened my perspective and put me in a truly international role,” Filzah explained. “I am based in Malaysia but I play an extensive role in recruiting talents for the company in various locations. This experience has taught me first-hand how important it is to really understand the market I am working on, and how it differs dynamically, one country to another.”

Today, she is one of the leading members of the Asia Pacific recruitment team, delivering recruitment solutions to hotspot locations such as Singapore, Australia, Thailand and Malaysia to name a few. When asked on how she tackles a global career challenge, Filzah attributed it to three of TMF Group’s values that she holds as a guiding principle in both work and her personal life. “I believe in living out my values both at work and outside of it – I’m lucky to work in an organisation that appreciates and practices the values I personally believe in.”

“Aligned to TMF Group’s own values, I believe in being passionate about my role, achieving excellence beyond just achievement but also looking at how I deliver to my clients and colleagues,” Filzah explained. “But most importantly, I believe in being respectful; my role sees me have a lot of external and internal contact, and I strive to be someone who listens enough to understand what the business needs, and what my candidates are looking for.”

On her recent award, Filzah couldn’t help but praise the amazing support system she has. “My team is super supportive, we work seamlessly together and everyone is always on the same page. I would also like to thank my manager, Anna Koh. Without her encouragement and guidance, I would not have been able to grow this exponentially in my career and achieve what I’ve achieved thus far.”

“I’m proud to see how far she has come” said Anna Koh, Recruitment Manager for Asia Pacific. “Filzah is a diamond in the rough, she shines brighter as she gets more polished in her career.”

As for the future, Filzah hopes to take things up a notch and explore new initiatives and efforts in recruitment to match the evolving digital industry and talent landscape.
