My Background:

I have been recruiting in the Accountancy and Finance space for the last 5 years, both in Australia and in the UK. Before this, I was a Personal Banking Manager with one of the top 4 banks. Finding my niche in recruitment and something I was really passionate about, I joined one the accountancy recruitment leaders in Scotland and built up an enviable reputation as their go-to Finance Recruiter.

My ambition has always been to see a little bit of the world and I took this opportunity to move to Australia in 2017. I have already developed very strong relationships and partnerships with some of Melbourne’s most successful organisations. These have ranged from top 20 listed clients to small private clients.

My approach is transparent and I work exceptionally hard to find the right fit, both technically and culturally and consider myself as an extension of my client. 

Roles I Recruit:

I recruit across the finance spectrum which ranges from Accountant and Analyst roles up to Finance controllers/ Directors. 

What clients and candidates say about Kris:

"I found Kris to be an energetic/proactive and customer-centric recruitment professional. I was impressed with the focus that was placed in the initial meetings to gain complete understanding of my recruiting needs, this enabled a very smooth process. What I also really enjoyed from Kris was his 'left of centre' thinking, this boded well with me and really helped me find two wonderful candidates. Kris seemed to find the perfect balance with his amount of communication with me, which enabled me to leave things in his capable hands. I would highly recommend Kris as a partner for your recruitment needs. You are stuck with me now Kris! " 
Luke, Senior Commercial GM of Freedom Foods
