Tell us a bit about your career to date and how you got into Recruitment.

I fell into recruitment like many people do! I used to be a Property Manager in London with a super hoppy resume as I loved travelling so much! I met with so many recruiters in my time as a Property Manager and I ended up working with my favourite recruiter, she placed me in a temp role which helped me pay for my land in Indonesia! She recruited me, we then became colleagues and friends! Moving to Australia was something that I always wanted to do and luckily recruitment was the perfect transferable job to move over with!
