I am currently seeking new opportunities to leverage my expertise and network in talent acquisition, where I have gained valuable insights and knowledge. My passion is recruiting, and I am open to all opportunities, not necessarily requiring a leadership role for success. I am highly skilled in executive search, team building, leadership, business development, account management, and negotiations, and I am known for building long lasting relationships with clients, candidates, and partners. I am passionate about connecting talent with opportunities and creating value for both parties.
As a Global Talent Acquisition Manager at Aristocrat, I led a team of five global talent acquisition business partners, supporting the full talent acquisition lifecycle of various roles throughout Aristocrat Gaming in Design & Development, Gaming Studios, and Group (corporate) organizations. With over 15 years of experience in talent acquisition, corporate recruiting, agency staffing, and business development, I have specialized in the recruitment of C-level executives, directors, management, and support roles in engineering, IT, accounting, finance, HR, administrative, and more across multiple industries and sectors.
I have demonstrated strategic acumen by developing and expanding a corporate recruitment program with Biomerics, an OEM contract manufacturer of class II medical devices. I created a successful recruitment strategy including national hiring for a wide range of roles, building strong internal relationships, and optimizing recruitment processes, resulting in significant cost savings through a Corporate Recruitment department launch and tool utilization. I successfully established a new branch in Fort Worth with SNI Companies. I have also played a pivotal role in securing and delivering high-profile contracts with major clients at Robert Half, SNI, and Agile Premier, where I effectively drove both sales and recruitment initiatives.
Graduated with diploma.
