My background:

The story of how I got into recruitment. To be honest, recruitment was never on the radar for me until I went to university. As a kid, I wanted to be an astronomer. The universe really appealed to me to the point where I read all of the astronomy books in the primary school library (call me a nerd). Naturally, I’m a curious person and love to explore new areas and that raw curiosity transitioned effortlessly when I attended uni and came across the area of recruitment in my Bachelor of Business degree.

I majored in Human Resource Management at QUT. Whilst completing my degree, I discovered that I was far more interested in the units which revolved around recruitment and selection as opposed to any other major units. As a strategic career move, I pursued a role within the recruitment industry as this will allow me to efficiently broaden my network with likeminded people which I believe is pivotal to my long-term success.

I started at Ambition in March 2019 as an Associate Consultant and quickly recognised that I enjoyed recruiting for the business transformation and projects services space, solely focusing on the business analysis space. To get up to speed, I invested my own time outside of work to study what a business analyst is responsible for, and it fascinated me. I believe that the opportunity to learn is always present and never-ending. That thought drove me to expand my own interpersonal skills through the world of self-development, human nature, and psychology.

Through my professional dealings in the workplace, I take pride in leveraging my knowledge and the tools at my disposal to provide high-quality client and candidate experiences. Recruitment is a medium which allows me to positively change people’s lives and help organisations on a company-wide level and that fuels my passion for what I do. Careers and team structure are very important and being able to help and support people in making the best choices in both areas makes me feel accomplished.

When I am not in the office, you can find me reading books, creating and listening to music, gaming, incorporating fitness in the week, and socialising with mates.

Roles I recruit:

  • Business Analysts (all levels of seniority)

  • Technical Business Analysts

  • Functional Analysts

  • Process Analysts

Recent projects:

Tourism and travel client needed a specialist business analyst in a 24-hour turnaround to which I delivered and had the candidate start 3 days later.

Energy and utilities client had multiple projects across the business, which required multiple business analysts. I successfully supported the client to build out and uplift their BA capability within a 9-month timeframe.

Professional services client had a role they urgently needed support with. I successfully assisted with the role and have built a strong partnership with the client since.

Financial services client had a difficult role to fill which required a niche skillset. They went to market for a candidate for a couple of months, until I provided a great candidate who interviewed 3 times in 2 consecutive days and was offered the role.

What my clients and candidates say about me:

“I had the pleasure of working with Wilson to look at new work opportunities in Brisbane.

Wilson was able to find me a job that perfectly aligned with what I was looking for and made the whole process easy. His unique and in depth understanding of the Business Analyst market is above and beyond anything I have seen before in recruiting.

Constantly going above and beyond for me I highly recommend his work for anyone in the industry looking for a great bespoke recruiting experience.”
