We sat down with Natalie to learn a little more about her.
So Natalie, what’s your origins story – how did you come into a career in HR?
I started working at a job network agency very early on in my career. I enjoyed working with people from all walks of life and assisting them to find employment. From there, my passion for recruitment began. I guess I just fell into it!
What’s been your favourite career milestone to date?
Working on the Wheatstone Project for Bechtel I designed and implemented a Transition Services program whereby employees that had successfully completed their role on the project were offered a program that would assist them in finding alternative employment. This was delivered by workshops and training manual.
What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your CV?
I love to travel – NZ, UK, Europe, US, Singapore, Thailand. Thailand was by far the most relaxing holiday I have been on not to mention the amazing food! I would love to go back to Europe!
What are you working towards outside of work?
I live a pretty simple life. I enjoy creating memories with my little family. I have loved every minute of being a Mum to my gorgeous baby boy Harvey, who is 15 months old.
