Boutique specialist search firm that focuses on mid-senior level HR & office support roles across all industries. We come with 10 years of recruitment experience and over 450 successful placements.
Mapped Social aims to be the catalyst to integrate people from disadvantageous groups into the workforce and to create better understanding of their hidden abilities.
Mapped started as an idea back in 2014, when two friends bonded over one too many whiskeys about parallel universes, time travel and of course, re-engineering the recruitment industry. They envisioned to change the perception of recruiters from target driven sales individuals to consultants who empower candidates and clients to reach their career goals and identify talent solutions respectively.
After a 2 year long hangover, they decided to make this idea a reality. Mapped aims to be a brand which not only leads in service quality, but is also personalized, tailored and fun.

Co-founder & Director
Originally from India, Pranav moved to Singapore in 2009 to join Nanyang Technological University (NTU) for a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science. At university, he interned with Apple and Tata Consultancy services, only to realise that his coding skills were not good enough to give him a livelihood.
Starting his corporate career with one of the largest global UK based recruitment consultancies, he quickly grew to a senior consultant within the Secretarial & Office Support discipline. While managing a team of 2 consultants, he was also one of the top billers for 2 years in a row which led him to be a part of the top 5% revenue makers across Asia Pacific. He successfully brought in and managed key accounts while driving a strong sense of culture and teamwork across the firm.
In 2016, along with Anchit, Pranav co-founded Mapped, a boutique search firm for HR & office support professionals across SEA. Over the last 2 years, Mapped has grown to a team of 7 and given rise to ventures like Mapped Asia & Mapped Social.
