I personally recruit at the senior/executive recruitment level across Technology and Analytics
Finding a new job is a full-time role in itself! Recruiters are typically so short on time and receive so many unsolicited resumes that most sit unread. In the best-case scenario, a recruiter will open the resume, but if it does not catch their eye, it might not even make it into the database. You don't stay top-of-mind by just sending a resume, selling yourself and calling every month to see if a position is available. Executive recruiters focus on a specific industry, region, or field to achieve a level of expertise that makes them more effective and efficient. So start by identifying and approaching recruiters in your industry, region, and field. Build a relationship based on valuable interaction regarding trends and issues that affect the disciplines and industries where you have expertise.
Prior to joining Morgan McKinley, I began my career recruiting across Accounting and Finance for one of the largest international recruitment groups for seven and a half years. I joined as a specialist finance consultant focusing on the placement
of part and newly qualified accountants into both permanent and contract roles in the UK. At the beginning of 2012, I joined the group's Sydney branch recruiting finance professionals in the government and not-for-profit sectors. In 2013 I took over the Commerce and Industry, Accounting and Finance team in Chatswood recruiting for large multinationals, PLCs and SMEs. At the end of 2014, I was given responsibility for both the Chatswood and Parramatta teams. In 2015, I was promoted to Director of the group's brand in NSW.
I joined Morgan McKinley in 2017 and lead the Accounting and Finance, Technology and Analytics teams across NSW. Since joining Morgan McKinley, the Technology and Analytics market has gone from strength to strength and the team here focus on software developers, architects, systems integration, information security, infrastructure management and data and analytics professionals in projects, contracting and full-time positions.
