- As a Country HR Leader in Indonesia, I'm interested in taking the next step to move into a Regional HR Director role in Singapore. How best to make this move?
- The best way to move into a regional position in Singapore, if you are currently based in Indonesia, is to make the move with your existing company. Be sure that you surface your ambitions to move outside Indonesia with your Regional HR Leader, as it could be difficult to have this conversation with your Country Business Leader (who will naturally want to retain you if you are good!). By being explicit about your future career plans, the Regional HR Leader can keep you on the agenda for future positions in regional headquarters or even other countries within the region. By transferring within your existing company, you provide some sort of 'value add' (in the form of company knowledge) when moving into the new location. It is much harder to leave your company and try to enter a new market of your own accord. Using a market like Singapore as an example, you will be put on to a level playing field and assessed against talent already in the market. Should you lack regional HR experience, you may suddenly find yourself at a disadvantage.
