Ellie prides herself on building strong relationships with key stakeholders, understanding their business and their ‘why’. Ellie likes to challenge the status quo of HR delivery, appreciating there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. She is passionate about promoting the benefits of employee engagement to businesses, and incorporating elements of this across all functional areas of HR - whether it be day-to-day business as usual or the design of strategic HR initiatives.
Prior to joining the performHR team, Ellie worked for 4+ years as a Recruitment Consultant with two reputable national recruitment agencies. Notably, she spent 2 years in Melbourne, working within a team that specialised in the design and facilitation of assessment centres to identify suitable candidates for high-volume recruits across varying industries.
With a strong motivation for stepping up to the next challenge and furthering her expertise, Ellie has recently completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Human Resource Management through Griffith University, and is currently participating in the 2017 HunterNet Future Leaders Program. A HR skillset to be reckoned with, Ellie now has her sights on a Masters of Business Administration (MBA).
