What don’t I do?  I manage a small team in the Melbourne office as well recruiting in the Engineering and ICT space.  

What’s your favourite part of your job?
Learning about the new products and projects our clients are involved with.  It so interesting knowing that our clients are involved in such interesting and global projects.

What is your favourite interview question and why?
If you were a chocolate bar which one would you be and why? This one really gets people thinking on their feet….and you get some very funny answers!

What are your 2 favourite albums? Why?

  • Oasis – Definitely Maybe – because it takes me way back to my youth
  • Bon Jovi – Cross Road – classic rock album, timeless songs

This would have to be a day skiing in the alps, maybe Chamonix, Val d’isere or Livigno.  

What’s your favourite movie?
Point Break – the original not the crap remake from last year!

What’s your greatest achievement and how has it shaped you?
I think my greatest achievement has been moving with my family to start a new life in Australia.  It was a move no one thought we would make, we did and now there is no looking back.  To come here with three kids was a challenge, we made a new life, new friends and it was the best thing I have done for myself and my family.
