Optimal Recruitment Team
Through the 1990s Julie worked in the City of London as Marketing & Events Manager for a thriving Fleet Street law firm. Whilst heading-up the marketing team, Julie embarked on leading a transformation agenda, re-branding the business and step-changing the dynamics of the company-client interface. The new levels of client care helped achieve exponential growth for the company and was recognised in media interviews and awards for innovation.
2001 saw Julie move to Asia, where she was involved in a variety of public relations and charity work, as well as marketing and recruitment projects for international schools.
Arriving in Australia in 2007, the recruitment industry was soon to benefit from Julie’s Marketing, Commercial and Personnel expertise. Having successfully climbed the ladder from Consultant to General Manager for a local Recruitment Agency in a relatively short period of time, her passion for clients and candidates – combined with an entrepreneurial flair – meant the natural progression was to establish a business partnership.
Julie will continue to deliver customised recruitment solutions, memorable client and outstanding candidate service. It is her aim to raise awareness of the unique benefits of Optimal Recruitment; and ensure the business community gets the opportunity to try, enjoy and prosper from the Optimal Recruitment experience.
