Area of expertise:

After graduating from University in New Zealand, I relocated to Australia working in hospitality and hotels. This lead to a 2-year stint opening and setting up a new hotel in the Kingdom of Bahrain. I then found myself back in Australia and this time in Melbourne.

After starting off in hospitality recruitment, I joined Ambition as part of the AccountAbility team in September 2018. I specialise in permanent and temporary assignments within business support and am your go-to consultant for anything customer service and administration.

I value clear communication and transparency in my interactions with both my clients and candidates. I strive to build long-lasting relationships and add value where I can, to ensure I have a more consultative approach to each interaction. Not only am I able to get the right person into a role but I also talk market insights, CV feedback and interview preparation.

Top candidate tip:

A clear well-written resume is your best tool when applying for a new role. Be sure to elaborate on your achievements to ensure your resume stands out from others with similar backgrounds.

During the interview make sure you have done your research and prepared a few questions to ensure your interest in the role is evident. Remember this is your opportunity to also ensure this role and company will be right for you.

And finally - be yourself and let your personality show, authenticity is key.

Outside of work:

I enjoy travelling, music and quality time with friends. On weekends you can find me exploring Melbourne and all it has to offer.
