A day in the life: a digital recruiter in Sydney

What’s it really like to be a digital recruiter in Sydney? Gillian Kane – MD of Digital Gurus APAC – runs us through a typical day.

6:45am

Wake up to glorious sunshine peaking through my window.

6:50am

Into the garden for a delicious cup of organic chai tea & a 15 minute meditation.

7:50am

Start stroll into work, through the funky streets of Surrey Hills, breathing in that warm sun. Such a perfect way to start the day.

8.15am

Get into the city and grab a poached egg on quinoa toast and a skinny latte from my favourite coffee place at the bottom of our office (p.s. Australia has some the best coffee in the world).

8:30am

Begin work. My mornings are usually spent checking emails, following up on interviews, getting feedback, catching up with clients and organising calls with new candidates.

12:30pm

Head to a great rooftop bar, overlooking the harbour bridge for a lunch meeting with a new client (minus the cocktails…).

1.30pm

Just secured a big project with my new client – time to work it for them. Begin with a headhunt search and market map exercise.

3:00pm

Start strategically spec-ing top candidates and developing new business. There are some great new companies launching here in Australia right now.

4.30pm

Respond to more candidates that come through during the day and organise consultations with them.

5:00pm

Do a consultation with a new candidate who enjoys a nice cup of our DG coffee straight from our George Clooney endorsed coffee machine.

6:00pm

Finish up work. The sun is still shining so off I go to meet some friends in Newtown where we bask outside in the beer garden of my fave hidden Mexican bar munching on some soft shell tacos and an ice cold drink. Perfect.
