Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hi, I am Wendy Ryan.  I have over twenty-five years experience in client and customer relation roles with fifteen of these years in the recruitment industry.  Most of my recruiting industry experience occurred early in my career.  It’s good to be back.

Following on from ownership of a printing business, working in the food industry, and working in the health and wellbeing sector in management roles, I decided to return to the recruiting industry. I’m happy to be back in recruitment... things have changed significantly and I look forward to the challenges.

What is it that you do at Artisan ?
Communication - a huge part of my role !  Primarily, matching and sourcing the right candidates for the right jobs is my main task, but I like to think that passing on my knowledge and experience helps the team, as well as a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

What do you love most about your job ?
Working and dealing with people on a daily basis, helping them to hopefully find their dream job!

What makes a candidate stand out to you?
Most definitely, their attitude.

What is the best advice you've ever been given?
To always be confident in yourself and to be the best you can be.

Tell us a random fact about you?
I am a breast cancer survivor...  of 10 years… woohoo!

What's your guilty pleasure?
Champagne… I love my bubbles !

What's your favourite thing so far about working at Artisan Recruitment?
I have been made to feel extremely welcome and part of the Artisan team.  The camaraderie is extraordinary.

Do you have any creative hobbies or pursuits ?
After my cancer scare, I can honestly say the simple things in life are important to me... I know it’s a bit cliché, but my family and friends are everything to me.

If we took a look at your music collection, what would we be likely to find in there ? Any surprises ?
A mix of 70s, 80s and 90s including AC/DC and Jimmy Barnes.

And lastly, what’s your favourite thing about living in Sydney?
Our lifestyle, our weather, lots of great restaurants, and of course - our beautiful harbour - what more could we ask for?
