Please join us in welcoming Rosanna Dixon, Principal HR Consultant, to the Magnetic People team. Rosanna has worked as a Senior Leader in the mining industry for the past eight years; you can find out more about her experience on our Team page.
We sat down with Rosie to find out a little more about her.
1. What’s your origins story – how did you come into a career in HR?
After living overseas for five years working in aviation for Etihad Airways I returned to Perth and moved into an agency recruitment role, I became passionate about sourcing candidates for clients ensuring not only the required skills, experience and qualifications were met, but the culture and team fit of the organisation was matched as well. From there, I knew I wanted to grow from being a recruitment advisor to becoming a true human resource generalist.
2. What are you passionate about?
From a professional perspective helping leaders to understand the critical role they have in engaging and motivating their employees. They need to be visible, communicate and listen to their team if they want to actively motivate and engage them to meet the requirements of the business.
Personally, my family. I have two young sons aged 4 and 6, and I really enjoy seeing them experience life and learn and grow every day.
3. Who inspires you?
I am inspired by people that continue to grow, learn and educate themselves throughout their professional careers and personal life; I believe we should never stop learning. I am inspired and motivated by the achievements of those around me and how they manage to balance professional and personal life, it motivates me to try harder professionally and personally for my family.
4. Where’s your favourite place in the world?
Geneva, it is so beautiful – I could spend all day walking the city streets or sitting by the lake.
5. What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your CV?
I studied classical ballet for many years as a child/ young adult – I loved it and still love attending the ballet.
6. What are you working towards outside of work?
Outside of work, you can find me creating memories with my family. I enjoy travelling, playing at the park or beach or cooking with my sons.
