Tell us a bit about your career to date and how you got into working in recruitment.
I have been in recruitment for 4.5 years. I was living overseas and in trying to get a visa, I applied to a few recruitment companies. Unfortunately, I wasn’t successful but when I returned to Australia, I thought I would try here and Hays took me on board. Since then I’ve been with Fetch and really enjoy it here!
What’s your favourite thing about working at Fetch?
What’s one thing you wish people knew about recruitment?
Recruiters often get tarred with the same brush because of bad experiences elsewhere. It is a relationship based game and every recruiter will give you a different level of service.
