Gemini promotes a happy and friendly work culture, in Hong Kong spread across two offices: our headquarters in Central and a satellite office just across the water in TST. We work with industry experts in all our teams, which enables us to be agile and respond fast to market challenges and opportunities. With a history of over 35 years in Asia, we are best placed to serve our candidates and clients with in-depth knowledge of the local market. But what is it like to work here?
How we operate
Gemini consultants recruit across all
industries, with each consultant being an expert in their own field.
Consequently, each consultant is assigned to at least one desk, with the
expectation that they attend industry events and keep themselves updated with
the trends in their industry. We make sure that they can advise clients and
candidates on a local and global level to become a trusted advisor. Consultants
at Gemini are free to build up their knowledge and contacts in different
We have had successful instances of consultants switching desks.
When they present a business case, they have demonstrable evidence of
understanding the key events shaping different industries. Our consultants recruit
across functions, dealing with everything from IT to Finance, Sales and Human
Resources, to truly build-up a complete understanding of the industry. In this
way, they will get a better understanding of the pay scales, specific skills and
required hiring trends.
At Gemini, we believe in setting clear
expectations, but we also firmly believe in giving our consultants the freedom
to manage their own work to live up to achieve those expectations. Of course,
billings are important, and it is what keeps our business healthy and thriving,
but consultants are given a large amount of independence to build their own
desk, and effectively run their own business.
Of course, all Gemini consultants have a
support network, whether through their mentor or manager. Gemini provides all
the tools a recruitment consultant needs to succeed. These tools include, for
example, their own LinkedIn Recruiter seat, a partnership with JobsDB and other
leading vehicles. However, we trust our staff to behave and perform like
professionals. When they are ready and confident to manage their own pipeline,
they are left alone to do just that, without interference. Gemini recognises
that this is an entrepreneurial and independent modus operandi. It doesn’t suit
all personalities, but consultants appreciate the model. We are proof that it
Development, progression, and opportunities
We at Gemini believe in developing and
retaining new and existing staff. We have recently revitalised and refreshed
our Career Development path, allowing successful consultants to gain increased
exposure and management opportunities, for those who wish to gain management

our consultants remain on top of their game and learn new skills.

the whole company got together to discuss ideas, share experiences around
business development to enable them to enhance their skillset and develop their
abilities. We also run ‘hard skills’, refresher sessions with our partners to
ensure we’re making the most of the tools at our disposal. In addition, we are
relaunching our ‘Lunchtime Learnings’, series of trainings where consultants
share tips and successes to facilitate knowledge sharing and promote development.
At Gemini, we are proud of our recently
relaunched Commission Scheme. The new scheme places us amongst the leading
companies in Hong Kong, with an uncapped commission scheme, generous cash
bonuses for hitting targets. We also have additional perks and incentives in
place for our top performers!
