Charles Higson Smith

APJ Head, Talent Acquisition and Early Development

​The Hong Kong team is growing with Charles Higson Smith joining as APJ Head of Talent Acquisition (TA) and Early Development (ED). He has over 5 years of experience in TA and ED, working with Hamlyn Williams across Asia where he focused on hires within the Financial Services and Technology Recruitment market.

With a passion for engaging best-in-class talent globally, Charles is looking forward to contributing on a large scale to Ethos BeathChapman. He also finds great satisfaction in supporting all new joiners in landing in the business in the most positive and productive way possible, enabling recruiters to maximise their potential.

Charles is competitive, goal-driven and thrives in a team, traits that he developed in his days as a professional Rugby player. He maintains an active lifestyle by playing rugby, skiing or hiking. Definitely not one to sit at home on the weekends, if he’s not playing a sport he will be found socialising with family or friends.
