Originally born and raised in Berlin, Germany, Julia moved to Wellington 11+ years ago and fell in love with the New Zealand culture and nature.

She has come with a background in the Travel Industry working for a corporate travel management company in a variety of roles - leading a team, consulting, working on individual travel requirements as well as medium-to-large group and conference bookings for clients in the public as well as the private sector. In this role, she had to understand complex client needs and build and maintain strong relationships, which is how she found her passion for helping people with their journeys. 

With recent experience in the recruitment industry, Julia has a good understanding of client and candidate needs and joined Chandler Macleod as a Recruitment Consultant. She is looking forward to assisting with the recruitment journey to connect candidates with the right opportunities and find the perfect client candidate match.

 Why do I work at Chandler Macleod?

I have only ever heard great and positive things about Chandler Macleod regarding their work culture, professionalism, support and candidate and client care, which are some of the most important things to me! During the interview and onboarding process it was clear to see that Chandler Macleod truly cares about their people and gave me a good understanding of how they look after their candidates and clients.

 

 My favourite Chandler Macleod moment?

My favourite moments so far include the interview and onboarding process - everyone made me feel included and welcome from the first moment I met the fantastic team. Leading up to my start date I constantly received updates, which I truly appreciated because it made me feel like part of the team before I even started! Then coming on board and being welcomed into such an amazing, kind and caring team gave me a feeling of belonging. I have truly loved every minute of it and am looking forward to coming into the office each day. 

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

Outside of work, you can find me spending quality time with my friends, going for walks around the bays on sunny days, curled up on the couch with a Netflix show on rainy days and travelling around our beautiful country over long weekends or holidays.
