Your human resources recruiter

Emma Egan

“There will always be someone that will try and bring you down, be true to yourself, trust your instincts and believe in yourself.”

What is your career history?

With sixteen years experience in recruitment and twelve years in Human Resources recruitment, I have managed teams of Human Resources recruitment specialists and I recruit for senior permanent and contract roles in the Sydney market. I am a solution driven professional that takes pride in the work that I do. I partner and consult with organisations and candidates to achieve the ideal outcome.

My HR network extends across a diverse range of industries and I have recruited across all levels and disciplines in Human Resources and obtain a thorough understanding of not only the technical expertise required for an organisation but the personal and cultural fit that leads to a rewarding outcome for the candidate and the business that they join.

I am passionate about working with individuals to coach them to achieve their career goals and I take great pride in my network that I engage with on a personal level.

What was your motivation to become a recruiter?

I love seeing people reach their potential. Often I will see the best in people and enabling them to see that they can chase and achieve their goals is fantastic.

Do you have any particular tips for anyone searching for their next role?

Be open to new ideas – don’t get fixated on an industry or the “ideal job”.

Ensure your resume and online profile reflects who you are. Resumes and profiles are a sales tool and the product is you!

What do you love most about recruitment?

Working with different people makes me happy. I love learning about their experience, how they got to where they are and helping them to take that next leap. When they do take that leap and they find something perfect for them it is very gratifying. A lot of people don’t believe in themselves and I love being able to show them what others see in them.

How do you define success?

Happiness and getting my three kids out the door on time every morning – without food on their faces 🙂

What is your vision for women in the workplace?

I would love to see more support from employers with flexibility and trust. Flexibility is not just about being able to leave at 4:30 – it’s about being able to work in a way that suits their style and is outcome based. Flexibility is not just about where you work, but also when and how you work. It is also time to address the Gender Pay Gap – it’s time to look at how performance is rewarded and set a fair benchmark across all people.
