We sat down with Ally to learn more about her role as a Senior Consultant working across the Government sector. Alongside her career stories, she surprised us with tales of shark cage diving and bungee jumping.
Hi Ally, what’s your role at Method?
My role at Method is Senior Consultant – Government.
I focus around identifying new opportunities within the State and Federal Public Sector by developing new client relationships and strengthening existing client relationships. Additionally, I recruit for the Public Sector IT roles and thus have the opportunity to meet new talent everyday.
What’s the best thing about your role?
The people! There are so many talented individuals in my specialisation, and I truly feel lucky to meet the candidates and guide them to their path of success.
On the client side, I have the opportunity to liaise with our Federal and State Government key stakeholders, so it is fascinating to hear about the new IT projects on the horizon.
What’s a recent moment you’re most proud of?
That’s an easy one – I am always so happy to see a happy candidate placed in their dream role! I take pride in meeting both my clients and candidates and getting to know them on a deeper level, this way when the right opportunity comes up, I can “match-make” them with confidence!
Recently, I placed a System Administrator with his first ever State Government permanent role, as he has been keen to get into the public sector for some time. At the end of the day, this candidate did most of the hard work by interviewing and answering Key Selection Criteria, however it is fulfilling to know I am on that journey with them.
Why did you join Method?
The culture. Without a doubt, the vibe at Method is unparalleled. Each and every one of us brings something unique to the table, and unlike other organisations where they might try to dim that sparkle, Method celebrates our individuality. For example, Method continuously puts out surveys to their staff, in order to ensure they are getting the most out of role. It feels great to know that we have a say in various topics and our voice matters.
What advice would you give your younger self, starting out in your career?
It will all fall into place.
What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?
One thing many people might not know about me, is that I love all things daring:
- Ziplining upside down in the Costa Rican jungle
- Cliff repelling in Thailand
- Bungee jumping in Canada & the Philippines
- Skydiving in Australia & New Zealand
- Shark cage diving in Australia
- Scuba diving with sharks and piranhas in Cuba……..the list goes on!
