Aquila is a specialist search and headhunting firm in Myanmar that is dedicated to finding the most befitting candidates in the market, leaving no stone unturned for your recruitment needs. We find the talent that appears hidden in a complex marketplace by targeted mapping and diplomatic headhunting. Our particular area of focus is Sales, Law, Finance, General Management and Marketing manager, director and c-level experience levels, across a variety of industries. Our area of expertise is niche allowing us to forensically focus and dedicate ourselves to understanding our particular market.
We pride ourselves on our very close relationship with our clients! This allows us to understand unquantifiable factors like culture, individual character and different schools of motivation within their organisation.
Established in 2012 we are the longest standing executive search firm on the ground, offering a new level of quality and specialist support not seen before in Myanmar.
What separates our boutique agency service from other companies is our extensive director level network in Myanmar and abroad. Our candidates are our network, our ambassadors and testament to the service we provide. Maintaining a good dialogue after placement helps us to understand them further and our clients better.
We understand the talent pool in this country but we also know where to look further afield for potential expatriate or repatriate recruits. The freelance consultants we work with in Hong Kong, London and New York broaden our reach over Asia, Europe and America.

Phone : +95 9764646307
A highly experienced international head-hunter with solid experience across the finance, technology and engineering sectors in the UK, Europe and Southeast Asia regions. He has worked with some of the world’s leading recruitment organisations and is renowned for his in-depth market knowledge and client partnering approach.
We take on a fully rounded and diplomatic approach to find the professionals who perhaps aren't actively searching for a new opportunity. We believe that the hidden workforce in Myanmar is larger than most people think due to the lack of online and accessible information, as well as the high amount of repatriates returning to their country with a developed skill set. It therefore takes a strategic and tailored consultancy HR approach to find the right people to help businesses grow exponentially and compete more effectively. This is what Aquila is valued for.
Our strength is our ability to deliver a highly customised service, tailored to our clients needs. Importantly, we don’t just use a database or social media, we have in-depth client meetings to truly understand the culture of their business and what kind of candidate they are looking for. We then conduct detailed mapping of companies as well as competitors in the market and overseas.
Our clients vary from Myanmar conglomerates to MNC's to start ups. Their business matters are completely confidential, as are our candidates. Discretion and professionalism is at our core so our clients can rest assured that their name is protected and recruitment needs are where you want them, not in the hands of a competitor.
We are industry specialists, we appoint consultants who have previous work experience in the business that they recruit for. They understand what our clients are looking for in that area and what type of person succeeds within that business. Our search consultants are also remarkable judges of character with exceptional intuition. We have native English and native Myanmar speaking consultants in our team, as well as being proficient in Lissu, Kachin, Shan, Spanish, Mandarin and French.
" Aquila found us two fantastic candidates that we would not have otherwise been able to find in the active job-seeking workforce. Aquila provided us with retainer-based quality on a contingency basis. I particularly appreciate the constant follow through by Aquila even after we have hired said individual, to ensure that things are proceeding smoothly.
I would highly recommend Aquila’s services to any company looking for an efficient and professional search to find the exact person you are looking to hire in Myanmar."
"Aquila executive search have helped us to find high quality directors in Myanmar that matched our company culture and enabled our team to grow. We have been impressed by the level of professionalism shown by the Aquila team and their acute knowledge of the local market and ability to find Myanmar nationals overseas. I would certainly recommend the use of Aquila’s executive search service"
"Aquila takes the time to genuinely understand the wants and needs of its clients. They offered me avery personal service, which carries on well after placement has taken place. Their support has been invaluable to me. They helped me with my relocation and they still stay in touch several months after arriving in Myanmar."
