What drew me back to recruitment

November 19, 2019

 

I used to be convinced that recruiting had a shelf life and technology would be the death of the recruitment consultant “as we know it”; so I jumped ship.

 

That was 18 years ago and, while technology has certainly enhanced the sector, the core qualities of a great recruiter haven’t changed and are still hugely in demand.

 

After working in the advertising and branding sector, forays into media, tech start-ups and a move to Brisbane four years ago, I felt a strong pull back to the industry that I had so enjoyed and thrived in early on in my career.

 

Now I’m back, I’m excited about the wave of technology that is creating so much process efficiency and enhancing the client and candidate experience.

 

The potential to greatly improve hiring outcomes through data analytics and AI is the most exciting piece for me.
