How long have you been at PUP?
Over 2 years.

What do you do at PUP?
I am Business Development Manager for the Southern Region covering Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia.  I liaise with commercial and public sector organisations who have requirements for new and better Recruitment, Onboarding, Performance, Learning and Succession Management systems. I talk to these organisations about PageUp’s Enterprise and Mid-Market Talent Management solutions, understand their needs, propose and demonstrate how we can meet their needs and onboard them as new PageUp clients.

Has your role changed since you first started at PUP? If so, how has it changed?
My role hasn’t changed, but our product offering has expanded with the introduction of Recruitment Marketing as a new module within our Recruitment suite.  The industry is constantly evolving, we are innovating, and our prospects and clients are transforming their businesses and technology, so it’s exciting to keep on top of all this and be considered a trusted adviser for many of these organisations.

What advice do you have for future PUP Stars?
Be an active part of the team, and reach out and collaborate with your colleagues in all functions of PageUp.  PageUp’s strength is its quality and diversity of talent and the fun and productive collaborations we have cross-functionally as well as just within your immediate teams.

What are you most passionate about outside of work?
My family, travel, connecting with people, reading, playing guitar, seaside activities, self-education and being curious about life.

What gets you most excited about the company’s future?
When organisations see the vision of our Unified Talent Management experience, and Next Generation recruitment with PageUp’s user friendly and powerful functionality, and then realise the people and support behind our products, they become converts and then life-long Raving Fans.  There is still so much potential in the market to onboard new PageUp clients.  I’m excited to see how our roadmap gets implemented, and other exciting new acquisitions and marketplace partnerships.

What is the culture like at PUP?
Open, collaborative, fun, hard-working, full of banter - but everyone has each other’s back.  From a Sales and Support perspective, PageUp makes it easy for prospects and clients to do business with us.

What is your favorite PUP Value and why?
Zing - it captures the sparkle, drive and enthusiasm of a typical PageUp employee. I think we must hire for Zing!

What has been your favorite moment at PUP?
When we reached SuperGreen last FY, and celebrated in Torquay together. The SuperGreen event was recognising PageUp’s global sales over-achievement, and was such a fantastic way for the entire organisation to bond and celebrate together in recognition of the fact that every department, every individual within PageUp contributes to the retention and growth of our clients.

What is your favorite benefit at PUP and why?
The benefit of working with very talented, diverse, committed and fun colleagues.
