Tell us a bit about your career to date and how you got into Recruitment.
I was in the building industry for 10 years doing carpentry, when I moved to Melbourne from Christchurch, New Zealand. Max (Fetch’s carpentry consultant) was a friend from my hometown, so I reached out to him for carpentry work in Australia. After a few discussions, I begun to develop and interest in Recruitment. From there Max put me in touch with Dan and after some interviews, I took the leap and moved to Melbourne to start work here.
