Recruitment Manager (Global Services)
Australia and New Zealand
‟Our selection process begins as an opportunity for a candidate to tell us why they want to join Partners in Performance, and for us to get to know one another. We want to find a mutual benefit, sense of connection and ‘fit’ between us. Those initial conversations help us understand an individual’s career goals to determine if we can match that expectation and help grow their potential.”
I’ve been in recruitment for just over 20 years. Outside of the office, I do a lot of voluntary work in my local community, by offering my coaching and mentoring skills where it is most needed and can make a difference. At Partners in Performance, I use these skills every day; whether actively listening in interviews to ensure an individual’s hiring journey is fair and transparent or coaching them along the hiring journey. When we receive a great application to join our firm, I partner with that individual and build a relationship that starts at the initial selection stage. It is about going below the surface level to understand what drives someone and truly matters to them.
From this initial conversation, we can gain a good sense of whether an individual will relish working in our fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment and enjoy having fun on the way. Once they are on board, I have found that those who can make the biggest impact are individuals who put their hand up, gain the visibility of leaders within the business and are eager to turn their ideas into action that drives impact.
