A former radio jockey and actor, Dee believes that your life experiences and the roles you play in life enrich the value you bring. When she’s not at work leading our recruitment team, she is running a side hustle, constantly learning something new and brimming full of ideas.
At the heart of Dee’s recruitment philosophy sits the belief that people bring value as their whole self. When asked to describe her role Dee says “I meet people and get to know them and their story, beyond the education and experience that’s on their resume, to understand the value they bring. I then get to match them to roles they’re suited to and where they can make a difference and impact.”
Dee sees the people her team has recruited into Bradken thrive because of their mindset and drive. “The assumptions that can hold people back from applying for certain roles sometimes, despite them having the capability, is that you need particular exposure or experience to apply for a job in manufacturing.”
She believes that if you ask questions and are willing to learn, there are many opportunities to learn and grow at Bradken. “My experience has been that my ideas are always heard. And the ones that might not work, we discuss why without judgement.” She attributes some of her candor to speak up to the environment created by an approachable leadership team.
