Why did you decide to enter in the recruitment industry?

To be honest, it wasn't a deliberate choice per se, but rather a fortuitous occurrence. At the time, I was keen to leave the world of tedious shift work behind and secure a cushy "office" job. Little did I know that fate had something much better in store for me - a career in recruitment, which turned out to be the perfect fit!

"I also enjoy learning about new therapy areas/treatments and healthcare technologies."

What was it about healthcare that appealed to you?

Healthcare has always held a special place in my heart, owing to the countless opportunities it presents to positively impact the lives of patients. I relish the chance to keep up with the latest developments in healthcare technologies and therapy areas, and nothing beats the satisfaction of witnessing the results of my hard work in action.

"The challenge of these placements based on the candidate being outside the square certainly provides a sense of achievement."

Tell us about your most memorable role placement. What were the challenges and achievements?

Over my 11-year tenure at HPG, I've had numerous memorable placements, but the ones that stand out the most are the ones where candidates are keen to make a career transition to industry or healthcare in general, or where I've been able to place fresh graduates in their first industry role. These placements come with a unique set of challenges, as candidates tend to be outside the norm, but nothing beats the sense of accomplishment that comes with finding the perfect match for them.

What education background do you have that helps you with your current job?

I hold a Bachelor of Applied Science, which comes in handy when analysing statistics and discussing scientific knowledge with clients and candidates alike. Additionally, I'm currently pursuing a Diploma of Health Practice Management, which equips me with the skills to implement policy and procedures, recruit healthcare-specific talent, manage personal and professional development, budgeting and forecasting, and oversee OHS.

Why a client or candidate should work with you?

If you're looking for a recruiter who's trustworthy, honest, and genuinely passionate about their work, look no further than me. Over the years, I've honed my expertise in the biotech, pharmaceutical, and medical device industries, and built strong relationships with key stakeholders. I'm committed to delivering results on every assignment, and I take a consultative approach with both clients and candidates, ensuring all bases are covered.
