HUMAN RESOURCES GRADUATE | RECRUITMENT CONSULTANT

Summary

British-born student currently undertaking a Masters in Human Resource Management at the University of Melbourne. In 2013 I completed a Bachelor of Arts at the same institution majoring in Sociology. My career interests also extend into Asia and last year I spent three months working in Beijing for a local recruitment company and improving my Mandarin proficiency. 

I began working for Hays in 2015 and have undergone an Associate program that focuses on structured training around their recruitment methodology, account management and business development techniques. I have also developed functional market knowledge of IT projects as well as employment law and payroll. I am seeking to become an accomplished HR professional with a holistic skill set in the consulting field.
