A new name in flexible outsourcing in the legal and compliance arena
An interview with co-founder, Chris Tang
What is Yuzu?
Yuzu is a flexible resourcing solutions platform that enables organisations to bring on board highly skilled experts for as long as they need. We offer a pool of high calibre lawyers, compliance professionals, paralegals, business support staff and senior executives (CFOs, COOs) available on a temporary, project, flexi or on-going ad hoc basis, and either full time or part time.
With more than a decade’s experience of legal and professional recruitment in the city, we have built a formidable pool of local and international talent to call upon to work either onsite or remotely.
What are the benefits of Yuzu?
The benefits are two-fold. For businesses, we offer customised, flexible outsourced placements of highly skilled talent (acting as consultants) to suit a wide spectrum of budgets. We take the headache of administration by carefully vetting our Yuzu consultants, offer induction and ongoing support, as well as administer payroll and other associated expenses.
Our dedicated account managers will provide ongoing pastoral care to our consultants and keep in regular contact with your team manager to ensure that the consultant is maintaining high standards of service levels.
For qualified individuals, we offer a fresh approach to the gig economy. Whether you’re looking to deep dive into a project or are seeking a flexible work arrangement, the aim of Yuzu is to create a platform with more options to suit your lifestyle and career goals.

Why did you create Yuzu?
The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has created a colossal disruption to working practices all over the world. It has sped up a wider acceptance and demand for bringing on board qualified specialists as and when the business needs.
Given our experience with building a large talent pool through Star Anise, we are in a position to utilise this resource into providing new and pragmatic solutions to human resource needs for organisations and to offer new work arrangements for professionals seeking greater flexibility in how they work.
