About us

At CTES®, we endeavour to be the preferred consultants to our clients and always be Committed To Excellent Service.

Our Story, Our History

Founded in 2005, CTES® had our humble beginnings in collaborating with clients to provide training and consulting, mainly in the areas of wealth management and financial planning, organization development, business strategy, talent acquisition and talent management.

As part of our expansion plan in 2007, the company decided to branch out into Executive Search and Recruitment services. Since then, our ESearch division has helped many organizations and associations to search for the right talents to enhance business performance as well as providing the right search of employment for the candidates who have placed their profiles with us.

In 2016, we created a new customer care division, CARETITUDE®. CTES® embraces a 360° customer care ethos and this division focuses on our clients and candidates and their challenges. We specialize in business process outsourcing for our clients and for our candidates, we provide career counselling and personal advisory on presentations, image consulting, interpersonal communication and relationship management. We ensure that organizations can stay abreast in dynamic business landscapes and the candidates' best selves are presented in their job search.

It has been more than a decade since we started out. However, the passion for our business and the dedication to excel still stand strong within all of us.
