Originally from Berkshire in the UK, Rebecca has been working in the recruitment industry since 2008. After taking the leap and relocating to Sydney in 2014, she joined Barton Mills managing their Healthcare/Medical, Office Support, Education and Real Estate division. Based in Sydney, she specializes in finding the perfect role and culture for both local and overseas recruitment professionals across our wide range of Australian clientele.
International relocation is a huge part of what Rebecca does here at BMR. Factor in her own personal relocation experience, and she is extremely well placed to answer your questions and guide take you through your relocation process.
I love the fact that everyone is so close knit and passionate about what they are doing. We are an interesting mix of people who all have different interests outside of work which brings a great balance to the team! We do all have one thing in common though, which is that we are all into being healthy and keeping fit – we even all train together on a Wednesday lunchtime! Nothing says team like a sweaty PT session!
I am a real people person and I enjoy meeting new faces and being out and about building relationships. Being in a candidate short market such as rec2rec means that you have the ability to ensure that you invest time in finding the right job for the right person, rather than pushing resumes to lots of different companies. BMR really focuses in on the right match for both candidate and client!
Check your resume! There is nothing more off-putting than spelling or grammar errors when you are checking out someone’s profile – and don’t forget to include your figures! You’d be surprised how many recruiters don’t add this in.
Before Barton Mills I was still in recruitment, working for one of the UKs largest RPOs. I worked there for six and a half years.
I enjoy keeping fit and healthy – especially as I live near Bondi….beach bod competition is fierce! I also love the normal things like dinner, movies and a cold glass of sauvignon blanc!
I would be a multi-millionairess designer of something… spending my days mostly laying around by my pool.
I made the move from the UK to Sydney in June 2015; working with Rebecca from Barton Mills made the whole process so much easier than I had expected. From our original conversation whilst I was still in the UK, to the job, company, even to being advised on areas of Sydney to live when I made the move, I couldn’t have asked for a better consultant.
Rebecca combined complete professionalism with a personal approach, providing details and advice with making such a move and she is the first person I would refer other consultants back in the UK to if they to decide to make the move to Australia.

Barton Mills were professional from the off and I dealt with Rebecca throughout. She arranged calls to suit me and was always on time and happy to talk me through every little detail and concern I had about the imminent move to Australia. I knew I was going to make the move happen one way or another but she really took the time to make sure I was put in front of the right companies for my background and ambitions. She arranged interviews both with Australian and UK based decision makers alike.
I interviewed face to face in the UK and Rebecca was instantly on the phone asking how it went making sure any concerns were addressed. She helped me from a late night chat on the phone in the UK right through to my first few weeks over here in Sydney when we actually met face to face to make sure all was as we had hoped it would be. Rebecca matched me perfectly with a great company that I have no intention of ever leaving.
The work the team put in has made a HUGE difference to me and my families future. I would highly recommend Rebecca and the team art Barton Mills to anyone thinking about heading to the sun.
