Let’s get to know our awesome June Member of the Month, Julie Bolitho, Tailored Recruitment & HR Specialist at Dedicated Staffing Solutions.
Tell us about yourself and your role!
I’m a Gold Coast local, I’m one of those people who loves coriander, I prefer a decent coffee to a glass of champagne and my family is precious to me.
How long have you been in the industry and what drew you to a career in construction?
My career started many years ago, working in the building industry & studying drafting. I was drawn (pun intended!!!) to the industry because everyone working in the industry seemed real, there was no pretense, limited egos and I had a great mentor.
What has been your biggest career achievement so far?
My biggest career achievements come from emotional & personal satisfaction when helping young people start careers. Most recently, bumping into a former apprentice who now has their own building business, just seeing them in their work gear & car with company logos. My heart melts.
What are your professional goals for 2023?
Constant learning to be at the forefront of HR legislation & Fairwork Act. Provide tailored support to busy employers by sourcing talented employees. Deliver a meaningful and caring candidate experience. Be a more proactive as an AWIC member & increase attendance at networking events.
