Why do I work at Chandler Macleod?

I choose CM as my new workplace to fully commit to my HR-based career goals. Having previous experience in high-volume recruiting especially, it was my aim to make the aspect I most enjoyed from my then-current role a full-time task. Many years ago, I was a candidate for CM Australia and was impressed with the professionalism and standard they set. I also highly identify with the company values which is important to me.

My favourite Chandler Macleod moment?

It is hard to pinpoint a specific moment – personally, my favourite moment includes my interview and the lead up to me starting. I received messages from the team and how exciting they were that I was joining. It made me feel valued, appreciated and even more excited!

Speaking professionally, we received a message on a Thursday night, from a client running a large-scale project. They urgently required starters for Wednesday the following week. This was truly a time for us to shine, get together as a team and managed to find a great group of candidates, exceeding the client's expectations to deliver.

What do I enjoy doing outside my role at Chandler Macleod?

I like spending time with my friends and enjoying Wellington and its various music and food festivals. Also, anything pop culture is my jam! Whichever form a story is wrapped up in (books, movies, games, tv shows, comics etc.), I will lose myself in it. During the lockdown, I picked up the habit of collecting and caring for plants, which certainly has made our home quite the jungle.
