Operations and HR Manager

Rob Fortescue

Job Title: Ops Manager / Internal Recruitment

Team: Management


One thing you bring to your role:

Experience!  Having worked for a number of years as a Recruiter/ Sales Consultant, I have a really good understanding of the link required between the operational support and sales teams. 


What do you see as the biggest challenges facing the recruitment industry?

The biggest challenge facing the industry right now is the availability of skilled people in Australia.  There are a number of reasons for this including ageing population, lack of skilled people coming through university, as well as the governments changing views on immigration and visa’s.  


What's your top tip for settling into a new role?

Be open and honest, and ask plenty of questions as the person teaching/ mentoring you wants to know you are interested. 


What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?

I would learn to play the piano. Not something I would have said when I was younger but I think a great skill to have and a great party trick!  Maybe one day.
