While in the UK, I started recruiting for the food industry which ultimately led to a HR generalist position within the banking sector. I knew by then that HR was where my career was destined to lead me, and I’d have to keep my love of cooking and eating for the enjoyment of my friends and family.
Returning to New Zealand in 2004, I chose to start my family and enjoyed various part-time positions while being a stay at home Mum. The beauty of working for a number of companies and organisations was that it gave me the opportunity to figure out exactly what I was looking for when selecting my next employer. Culture fit is important and Brannigans suits me to a ‘T’. After working on a temporary basis for Brannigans in 2016, when the opportunity arose to join the team permanently, I jumped at the chance to join an organisation that I felt was right for me.
At Brannigans, I love working in ‘the people business’ and especially the interaction I have with clients and candidates. My responsibilities include recruitment, selection, and negotiation, as well as, specialising in online advertising and searching for motivated ‘passive’ candidates in the marketplace.
In my family time, my husband and I like to “encourage” (and by that I mean drag!) our daughters along to explore the outdoors. We are hoping to get through a few of the Great Walks with them before they leave home. I love catching up with friends and family, attempting to sort out my garden which is a work in progress, discovering great new eating establishments in town and going to the theatre.
