Area of expertise:

Janessa started her recruitment career in late 2014 in Sydney with a boutique agency, specialising in permanent roles within the retail landscape. Janessa was given the opportunity to move into the Melbourne Market late 2015 to help build their retail scene, which she accepted.  Following that, Janessa decided to gain experience within a global agency before realising her passion lay within a more specialised/boutique environment.

Janessa came on board with AccountAbility late 2016 as a Talent Advisor in the Business & Accounting Support Division and has worked her way up to Senior Consultant as of June 2018

Janessa is an enthusiastic consultant who values honesty and transparency in her approach. She is dedicated to helping job seekers find their perfect role and building lasting relationships.

Top candidate tip:

It is just as important to make an impact on a business from a cultural aspect as much as it is to prove you have the relevant experience for the role. Remember to let your personality shine through and turn the interview into a conversation.

Outside of work:

Outside of work you can find Janessa enjoying Melbourne and discovering all of the tourist spots, which include road trips, delicious food, coffee that only Melbourne can produce and all of the shows and sporting events on offer. Although Janessa has been here for over three years she still considers herself a “tourist”
