Recruitment Specialist, HR Manager, Careers Practitioner

As a Recruitment, Career Development, Human Resources and OHS professional in Mining and Resources Sector, my PASSION IS PEOPLE as well as employment opportunities and career development in the mining and resources sectors. My passion led me to create a recruitment agency in Perth that serves as a ‘hub’ for mining and resources sector.

have been involved with, employed by and lived remotely in this thriving Industry for the past 22 years, in roles such as Regional Manager – Mining and Resources, Group HR and Recruitment Manager, Area Manager as well as Branch Manager and Recruitment Consultant for several companies, predominately based in the Pilbara of Western Australia.  It is this extensive and specialised experience that has helped me become the “go to girl” and a Resources Sector recruiter of choice for a growing list of companies in Western Australia, nationally and internationally.

Throughout my career I have worked on Iron Ore and Gold mine sites in a variety of different administration based roles across ~ production, processing, maintenance, maintenance planning, drill and blast, mine planning, training, supply / warehouse, emergency management, fleet management, engineering, fixed plant, human resources and accounting and finance departments. These roles have given me a true understanding of on site employment, and the skills and qualifications necessary for such positions and allowed me to become not only a highly experienced general recruiter but also a focused Resources Sector recruiter with insider knowledge you can’t learn in a book.
