Managing Consultant - Real Estate

Simin Wu

About me

​Describe your area of expertise and experience?

I have been with Cobalt’s Real Estate practice for close to 7 years now (since 2013) now having graduated from NUS with a Bachelor’s Degree in Real Estate. I first learned my property expertise with property developer Far East Organization before moving to Cobalt to help to continue the growth of the Real Estate Team. I specialise in mid to senior-level positions in property investment and asset management, fund and portfolio management as well as leasing, development, property management and operations. I partner with international property and investment companies, as well as local and international real estate developers, investors, funds and REITs.

How would you describe your approach to work?

I am passionate, systematic and driven. I take time to meet with people and to listen and understand my clients' and candidates' needs and requirements.

Why do your clients, candidate and colleagues trust you and want to work with you?

I am empathetic and objective and I always believe there's a candidate for every job - you just need to find them! I've been told that I'm assertive but not pushy. Most of all, I respect the confidentiality and privacy of my clients' business and my candidates' job search.

What do you love about working at Cobalt Recruitment?

I love the culture and working environment here at Cobalt - we're like a family and everyone is mature and dedicated. It's a collaborative environment and the team is professional and helpful. Cobalt's consultants approach every assignment with "heart" and we take what we do very seriously, be it work or play. It's a fun-loving bunch and you can often find us at a bar having post-work drinks or bonding at a yacht party!

What do you love most about what you do?

I love it when I manage to find that rare unicorn of a candidate for my client - someone they wouldn't be able to find otherwise or perhaps have spent a year or more in their search. I am especially happy when I help my candidates land their dream job (on top of a nice pay jump!), and I'm also humbled when people I've spoken with 3 or 4 years ago come back to me and refer their close contacts and friends to me. Most of all, I appreciate the trust that my clients and candidates have placed in me with regard to their business plans and personal career growth.
