After graduating with 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 a 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 -ooked 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
Project / Program Management
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.
We knew it wouldn’t be an easy task to find a Technical Support & Development Analyst with the particular skill set we were seeking, especially given the current climate. I was advised to try Ambition Recruitment and was directed to Owen Marquis, Senior Consultant. Owen asked all the right questions and was clear and transparent in his communication, ensuring he kept both myself in recruitment, as well as the hiring managers across any updates. My dealings with Owen were polite, yet friendly with the right amount of professionalism. Owen is eager to assist and manages to keep in touch, without overstepping the mark. I know which roles he’s working on every few months, so I know I can go to him when required.Melanie Hollingworth , Recruitment Coach
There's not many recruitment companies out there willing to go the extra mile for their clients. Ambition, however, has gone an extra 1000 miles, especially Owen who was the consulting agent that approached me for a role. He has been an absolute pleasure to work with as he had personally made sure I was up to date at every step of the way during the recruitment process. Not only that, he has gone out of the way to prepare me for the interviews and made the entire process a pleasant experience. Especially the end result and outcome which was well worth it."Sonny Tran, Level 2 Technician
