My background:

After graduating in a Bachelor of Marketing at Deakin University in 2017, I moved to London and this is where my passion for recruitment was formed. I worked for search firm that specialised in business transformation and change recruitment. This was one of the drivers that really got me passionate about recruitment as I was able to learn and understand the different transformation programs across a variety of businesses and industries.

In 2018, I moved back to Melbourne where I stood up an office and led recruitment activities across Australia, mainly within financial services, telco and tech industries. Early in 2020 my time with Ambition began, continuing on with business transformation recruitment. I believe one of the reasons I am successful in what I do is my genuine interest, not only for recruitment but also for business improvement. A testament to this is that I am currently undertaking Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training to ensure I fully understand what my clients are looking for when they are hiring.

Outside of work I am an avid home chef. My favourite things to cook are slow cooked meals with huge flavours. I also have a passion for skiing and have a goal to ski in every continent by the age to 27 (only 2 continents to go!).

Roles I recruit:

  • Lean Six Sigma

  • Digital Transformation

  • Agile Delivery

  • Project / Program Management

  • Continuous Improvement

  • Data Analytics

Recent projects:

I was working for the Managing Director, Operational Excellence at a global bank, where he was tasked to build out the operational excellence team in Sydney. This is one of my prouder projects, as the client was after a very specific type of person. They needed to come from a Management Consulting background along with strong technical skills. This was a global search and I ended up placing someone from Chile and the UK to relocate to Australia for the role. This opened the door for other roles within the bank, where I ended up building strong relationships and placed more people in different areas.
