"...it seemed like a natural next step in my career."
Why did you decide to enter in the recruitment industry?
I decided to enter the recruitment industry because it seemed like a natural next step in my career. There's a sense of satisfaction when a suitable placement is made with an organisation and an individual that aligns for both of the culture-wise and career-wise. I also like interacting with people and refining those skills.
What was it about healthcare that appealed to you?
What appeals to me about healthcare is that no matter what role you play within the healthcare industry, you play a part in a patient's care at the end of the line.
"It was quite a challenge but felt like a significant achievement..."
Tell us about your most memorable role placement. What were the challenges and achievements?
Orthodontic combined with sales experience in WA is extremely scarce. I reached out to over 85 candidates through LinkedIn Recruiter, Seek and our database, had connected and chatted about the role with over 20 of them, and finally after just over 2 months, had a suitable candidate accept the role. It was quite a challenge but felt like a significant achievement due to the amount of time and effort put into the search and for finding such a well suited candidate.
What education background do you have that helps you with your current job?
My educational background is a bachelor's degree in Political Science, and I also did HR courses. I've also done several HR and recruitment training/courses within organisations.
Why a client or candidate should work with you?
A client/candidate should work with me because I'm very good at understanding both the needs of the client and the interests of the candidate, and great at matching them. I'm resourceful and tenacious and will continue to search until the right fit is found. I'm very easy to work with and am adaptable and flexible in regards to our working relationship.
