Q. Why/ How did you end up in recruitment 

I got into recruitment because I never wanted two days to be the same and wanting a job where you never stop learning. Every day I am working multiple assignments across multiple industries with a wide range of stakeholders and daily deadlines. Never a dull day! My primary focus is to partner with candidates and clients, using the depth and breadth of my expertise and market knowledge to ensure I make the unique match that makes individuals, companies and industries thrive.

Q. Hobby/ interest outside of work

I have grown up on the central coast and have enjoyed the lifestyle of beach and country. I enjoy hanging out with my friends on the weekends going to bar and restaurants (with a weakness for gin). In my down time, I'll binge watch he latest show on Netflix or read a new book.

Q. Field in which you specialise

I specialise in Information Technology and Data Analytics.

    ​Tim contacted me the next business day after I submitted my application to discuss my suitability and find out more about me. I’ve applied for many roles with recruiters and so often I don’t receive a response at all... which is not great for mental health at a time where there is so many people looking for work and struggle with uncertainty. Thank you Tim for being different!
