Recruiter in Melbourne, Australia

I connect curious technologists with life-changing career moves. Finding a role that gets you jumping out of bed in the morning can be time-consuming, difficult and often nerve-wracking. I believe in making this process as human and dare I say - as fun as possible!

In a world where its too easy to automate too much, I'm passionate about creating memorable and enjoyable candidate experiences by providing useful insights, market expertise, and coaching. I've partnered with top technology and professional services in Europe and APAC from startups to well established global brands. Since 2005 I've helped galvanize the careers of hundreds of people in several countries.

Spent the early part of my career in the UK recruiting for Sogeti and Google before marrying an Australian who (easily) convinced me to move to warmer shores. Have since worked with Zendesk and now with IRESS recruiting technologists to change the way millions of people make financial decisions.

In my spare time, I can be seen riding my lime green 2001 Aprilla scooter, watching English Premiership football at ungodly hours or replaying "Doom 2" to remind me of the golden era of gaming 😃
