What’s your name?
Tell us a litle bit about yourself.
I'm English, but I now call Sydney home. My background in photography and marketing.
What is it that you do at Artisan?
I'm a resourcer for the NSW team, so my job requires me to find and interview candidates for temp, contract and perm roles across both the creative and digital sectors. So basically my time is spent looking through wonderful folios, and chat to the best creatives in NSW about their work!
What do you love most about your job?
Meeting so many awesome candidates! I'm so lucky to spend my days chatting to lots of fascinating individuals; I'm constantly learning about the industry, as well as what's going on in the city too.
What makes a candidate stand out to you?
For a candidate to stand out to me, I need to see a really considered folio which demonstrates their depth of skill in a clean and simple style. Personality is also important. I always remember when a candidate is enthusiastic and well informed about their industry, as well as easy to chat to
What is the best advice you've ever been given?
You rarely regret the things you do; it's the things you didn't do that you'll wonder what if...?
Tell us a random fact about you?
I spent quite a lot of time living in country NSW and I know how to play polo. Im not that good at it though!
What's your guilty pleasure?
Really bad, really cheesy country music
What were you doing prior to joining the Artisan family?
Working for Auckland Museum
What's your best memory so far from your time working at Artisan Recruitment?
Impressing the Melbourne team with my amazing lawn bowls skills... (ok, so maybe I suck at lawn bowls, but I don't think they noticed??)
Do you have any creative hobbies or pursuits?
I love getting my Bronica out when I can. I'm a big medium format film fan. I also find drawing really relaxing, and try to get out to exhibitions as much as I can.
If we took a look at your music collection, what would we be likely to find in there? Any surprises?
Oh no, please don't do that!
And lastly, what's your favourite thing about living in Sydney?
Sydney offers the best work-life balance for me. I love living on the beach, but having the convenience of everything in the city right on my doorstep. The weathers usually pretty good too!
