Jessica Barrett 27.09.2017

As we move into the second year of our Contract Collective programme we are delighted to bring to you our Quarter 3 Morgan McKinley Contractor of the Quarter award. This program brings our contractors regular updates and insights on the contracting market, but more importantly, offers you a series of networking events with keynote speakers on business-critical topics.

Justin Cassar | WestpacAt Morgan McKinley, we are lucky to have an outstanding relationship with our contractors. I am very proud that one of my ex-contractors, Justin Cassar, has been named Morgan McKinley contractor of the quarter for quarter 3, 2017. 

Justin and I first started working together last year when he was looking for his next job opportunity. A key factor for Justin was finding a position that would hone his skills as a Senior BA whilst also having a clear career path and progression opportunity. 

We secured a Senior Business Analyst contract within the Business Banking portfolio at Westpac where he has thrived. During this time, Justin and I had multiple conversations about potential career paths within the bank and what might be the right next move for him. Justin's hard work and exceptional Business Analysis skill set were recognized very quickly and when the opportunity arose, he was offered a permanent position as a BA manager within a large stream of the portfolio. 

Justin now looks after his own team of Business Analysts and receives fantastic feedback from his peers within the bank and has a stellar reputation within the bank. He has been an absolute pleasure to work with, is always positive and has a lovely can-do attitude. 

Here is what Justin had to say:

Recruiting through Morgan McKinley has been a stand-out for me for a few reasons:

  • The attentiveness and caution shown in placing a candidate
  • Jessica Barrett’s unique and thorough style of interview prep: mock-interviews and organisational insights meant that I was as best placed as I could be for an interview
  • The support and coaching shown post being placed


Wishing you all the best in the future Justin! It was a pleasure working with you.
