Consultant - Naval
How would you summarize what you do at Kinexus in one paragraph?
I am a consultant working on the Defence Naval team at Kinexus, focusing on the recruitment of white collar technical skillsets, Australia wide. I am also tasked with using my fantastic sense of humour to make sure team morale is off the charts. With great power comes great responsibility.
What do you like best about working at Kinexus?
I like the team we have in place at Kinexus which makes it easy for me to get up in the mornings and come in to work. We have a supportive management structure in place who are always around to help but also give you the opportunity to develop your own skills. I like technology thus the Defence market as a whole interests me. As a new Australian I also get a sense of pride in what Kinexus does and what it stands for.

What is your favourite interview question and why?
If you were a car, which part of the car would you want to be and why?
What are your 2 favourite albums? Why?
First one is easy: Incubus – Morning View. Incubus have been my favourite band since I was 15 years old.
The second one is more difficult but a few contenders would be Radiohead – The Bends, Oasis – Definitely Maybe and The National – Boxer.
If I ever had the talent to write a song for my wife it would be Slow Show by the National on their Boxer album.
If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be?
Spend a day with my beloved Liverpool FC and watch them play in a big European Cup final
What’s your greatest achievement and how has it shaped you?
Moving countries at the age of 18. Looking back at it now I am grateful for the sacrifices my family had to make so I could come here and make a better life for myself. Becoming an Australian citizen is another highlight as well.
