How would you summarize what you do at Kinexus in one Paragraph?

I listen to the needs of clients and candidates before working my magic and finding them the best possible solutions.

 

What do you like best about working at Kinexus?

The people. My colleagues and the diversity in the candidates that I speak to. Hearing interesting information about what’s going on in the defence industry.

 

What’s your favourite part of your job?

Thinking that maybe I contributed to the acquisition and sustainment of the JSF (however far removed I may be).

 

What has been your least favourite job and why?

Managing EB Games – I spent way too much money on gifts for my family.

 

What is your favourite interview question and why?

If I could find you your dream role, what would it be?

There are so many varied reactions to this question. Some people laugh, some retort, some gasp like you have asked them to solve the mystery of life, some awkward joke and others aim for the sky. Always an interesting response.

 

What makes you happiest?

Knowing I have contributed value and it has made a difference in the big scheme of things.

 

What fad do you wish would come back? Which do you feel should stay gone forever?

Track pants with the press studs down the side – I mean who wasn’t cool when you had a pair of those on? Haha
Gone forever – Bowl haircuts. Seriously what were we thinking?

 

Who’s your personal hero?

My Husband – Stephen.

 

What are your 2 favourite albums? Why?

  1. Best of Karaoke – Have a laugh, let your hair down and sing along to some great songs that everyone knows (some) of the words to.
  2. Creedence Clearwater Revival Full Album – Always great to listen to at the end of the night whilst sitting around a bonfire with family & friends.

 

If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be?

I am pondering this question like I am trying to solve the mystery of life.
In the end I came up with …….LAUGH!
