Ian Holt, Assistant Director, Life Team
“Eastspring offers employees the opportunity to move seamlessly within the organisation. I first joined over five years ago as a Marketing Manager, and have since had a number of roles within the business, including heading up new teams and consolidating others.
My managers have always supported me, and hard work is always recognised: if you perform well, it’s acknowledged and there’s the chance to take on new challenges. My career has progressed exponentially during my time with Eastspring, and it’s been a great journey.
It’s a warm and welcoming environment, with a culture that’s social and engaging. There’s plenty of healthy competition and inter-office activities, and it’s these little things, the small details, that make you feel part of a team.”
Judy Yap, Director of Brand and Communications
“I joined the organisation 21 years ago, at which time the Malaysian office consisted of a small team and we all had to pitch in. It felt really entrepreneurial. Today, we’ve grown considerably, but that original buzz and energy remains.
This industry is always evolving; there are always new regulations and changes – it ups the ante, keeping things interesting, and Eastspring offers me the opportunity to be creative in this environment.
I’ve had the opportunity to travel considerably. Learning trips to India and Korea for example have been a great way to see first-hand how our local teams are innovating for their markets, and how they structure their products. We have a culture of knowledge sharing across the company, and by leveraging our expertise in local markets we can create relevant and unique solutions for our clients in Malaysia."
