Tell us a bit about your career to date and how you got into working in recruitment.
Well, I was lucky enough to work for my family business back in the UK for a few years straight out of school, which taught me all the fundamentals of business. I then realised that it wasn’t exciting enough for me, so I decided to spend the summer in Ibiza working for a PR company (highly recommend). When I finally arrived home, I spent 5 years working as a regional BDM, developing my skills and travelling around the UK. Which gave me the opportunity to see all of the UK’s beautiful towns (and pubs).
Earlier this year I moved to Australia for the second time and a friend from back home introduced me to this amazing company (Fetch). After meeting with the team twice I knew I wanted to be a part of their journey.
