Tell us a bit about your career to date and how you got into Recruitment.
After finishing high school I started working in the Travel Industry. I worked both here and over in the UK, when the pandemic hit. I had to return back to Melbourne and seek out a new career. And now here I am!
What’s your favourite thing about working at Fetch?
I feel like everyone says this, but the people! When you spend so much of your life at work, having an amazing group of people around you makes the days not feel like ‘work.’
What’s one thing you wish people knew about recruitment or your industry?
That you can succeed in this industry even if you haven’t worked in it before. As long as you have some transferable skills & the drive to do well, you will!
#1 career highlight to date?
Being promoted after my first 6 months in the role.

If your life were a movie which one would it be?
The past two years have felt like I've been living in the movie Footloose. All I have wanted to do is go out dancing with my friend’s but COVID wouldn’t let me!
If you were on death row, what would be your last meal?

Name three things you are grateful for right now.
Family, friends and sunny days (when we get them)!
