This week our Fetchie spotlight is on our Operations and Communications Manager Annique Ray!
From the southwest Victorian coast, Annique joined us 2 years ago as a marketing intern, but quickly became so much more. Known as ‘miss fix-it’ Annique handles any hiccups within Fetch; from tech issues to planning team events, Annique is relied on by all. Outside of work Annique loves a drink and to get a little crafty, sometimes with some DIY or sometimes both at the same time. Annique cares deeply not only for her teammates but for marginalised populations worldwide.

Tell us a bit about your career to date and how you got into Recruitment.
I fell into Fetch as an intern whilst at university, and they haven’t gotten rid of me since! I started as the Marketing Intern, and when I graduated, I was offered the Marketing Coordinator role, and from there my role has developed and evolved into operations & communications management.
What’s your favourite thing about working at Fetch?
It’s a cliché, but the people! We have such a fun vibe at Fetch and it’s something I love!
What’s one thing you wish people knew about recruitment / your industry?
Before I worked for Fetch, I didn’t know how complex and large of an industry recruitment is, the industry is huge and there is so many different opportunities.
Number 1 career highlight to date?
I suppose it’s the evolution of my role at Fetch, being given so much trust and opportunity by the leadership team is a massive highlight. I’ve been exposed to so many different functions of a business, and that’s something I’m really grateful for.
