What makes you passionate about recruitment?
Not only do I love working in recruitment, but recruitment in London is on another level. London is such a diverse city and working in recruitment you get to work with candidates and clients from all around the world, it’s the most exciting thing. There is also no better feeling than finding someone a job they love.

Where did you live before calling London home?
Wellington, New Zealand.

What is your favourite thing about London?
Growing up in New Zealand I competed in tap dancing competitions across the country whilst also running my own dance school. Performing arts, theatre and musicals have always been a passion of mine which is why (when the wallet allows) I try to get to The West End! A must see is definitely Hamilton – you have to go!

What can’t you start your day without?
My alarm.

What is your favourite weekend pastime?
If you asked me this question in my first couple of years in London, you would get a very different answer. A takeaway and good Netflix binge session is my ideal Friday or Saturday night in. I also love a good puzzle.

What is your favourite quote?
‘I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion’’ – Muhammad Ali. Learning, developing and growing is always hard, but if you don’t have the lows you can never have the highs!

What do you love about Australasian?
The team, I’d be lucky to find another bunch of people that are as dedicated, passionate and committed.

Loud chewing, or people chewing with their mouths open, it’s just all wrong.

What makes you passionate about recruitment?

Working in recruitment gave me the opportunity to travel the world. Moving to Melbourne from the UK and trying to find work was daunting. The recruitment agency I worked with to find temporary work helped me so much, I wanted to help others in the same way. So when they offered me a role within their own agency, I jumped at the chance! If it wasn’t for recruitment, I never would have known how much I cared about working with people and helping them find a job they love. Sometimes so far from home, just like I had.

Where did you live before calling London home?

I returned to the UK after 2.5 years in Australia at the start of the pandemic. When I’m not London, Cambridge is home for me.

What is your favourite thing about London?

It doesn’t stop. There is always something to see, somewhere to go, something new to try.

What is your favourite weekend pastime?

I’m a bit of a culture nerd. You can usually find me at a gallery, or exhibit, or museum. Food also takes up a good amount of my time!

What is one of your pet peeves?

Slow. Walkers. Keep it moving!

What is your favourite thing about London?
There is so much to see, do, eat and drink! It’s such a social place to live in which is exactly what you need in your home away from home. 

What is your favourite quote?
The challenge is to always improve, to always get better, even when you’re the best. Especially when you’re the best.

What is your favourite office snack?
I can’t get through the day without my eggs, toast and a black coffee. It’s either my breakfast or lunch each day. 

What is the best concert or festival you have ever been to?
Coachella has been ticked off the bucket list and lived up to all my expectations. Fun, sun and great music. The best concert back home I’ve been to is Six60 featuring Drax Project. They normally have an outdoor show each summer in my hometown. There’s nothing better than rounding up all your friends and supporting local artists!

Where did you live before calling London home?
