What do you like about working at Barton Mills?

I had such a warm welcome to the team at BMR and feel like I’ve been here a lot longer than 8 weeks!! It’s a very close knit team, we all have our own unique personality and react in different ways when we make a placement (e.g – Mark clicks, I twerk). We have a level of maturity to get on with our days work but know how to have a laugh and make it fun at the same time.

What do you enjoy about working in rec 2 rec?

In all honesty it feels like I was born to be a rec2rec! Every recruiter, including myself, and clients have started as a Rookie/Trainee recruiter at some point in their career, so using my experiences to help passionate people get into the industry is extremely rewarding. I believe my candidates are the next gen managing directors/business owners and could be my clients one day.

If you could give your candidates one tip, what would it be?

Do your research, smile and wear deodorant.

What did you do before you worked at Barton Mills?

Before Barton Mills I worked in recruitment servicing the Real Estate and Property industry for approx. 1.5 years.

What do you like to do when you aren’t recruiting?

Sadly, I don’t really have a specific hobby… I tried social netball once but the pivoting gave me toe blisters so I never went back… I like all the typical girly things: hanging out with my friends and my boyfriend, outdoor adventures/coastal walks, movies, dog memes, gym/fitness, bottomless brunches, dining out, travel/weekends and so on..

If you could be any other occupation in another life, what would you be?

I would love to work behind the scenes as Videographer for David Attenborough, or a Judge!


Client Testimonials

I have recently had the wonderful opportunity to work with Pippa. I found her to be a highly effective and proactive individual. I had been wanting to move into recruitment for a long time and thanks to Pippa, it finally happened. Pippa proved that she had good client relationships in the industry, was transparent throughout the whole process and gave good advice along the way. She still keeps in touch to make sure I’m doing well. I would recommend Pippa to anyone looking for a recruitment role in Australia.
