Benjamin Chia

Senior Consultant

Oil & Gas | Marine & Offshore | IT & Services

EA Personnel Reg No.: R1101394


Benjamin joined Jade Clover in Mar 2009 and was the keyman in establishing Jade Clover's marine and offshore business. He focuses on recruitment for shore-based marine and offshore companies as well as for offshore vessels and rigs. Benjamin's strengths lie in having a strong base of Eastern European, South East Asian, and Southern Asian crew.

Coming from a finance background, Benjamin enjoys his current job better as he feels that there is greater intrinsic value in helping people find jobs and improve their careers. One of Benjamin's most memorable experiences was gaining exclusive rights to finding the crew for an entire vessel and a jack up rig early in his career. He likes building relationships with crew candidates and propose new opportunities for them when they finish their existing assignments.

Benjamin considers setting up Jade Clover's marine and offshore business during the organisation's infancy, despite not having any background in the oil and gas industry; and growing the business into its current structure as one of his greatest achievements. He aims to continue to expand this business operation going forward.

Benjamin graduated with a diploma in management studies, business management from Singapore Institute of Management. He is conversant in English and Mandarin. Benjamin is a movie buff. A fan of the superhero, sci-fi and fantasy genres, his favourite movie is Lord of the Rings. Benjamin is also a committee member of the Muscular Dystrophy Association Singapore, which advocates for the needs and support for people with Muscular Dystrophy. As a committee member, his role is to drive the direction of the Association's work and organize social outings for members.
