OVERVIEW is one of the success stories for Australian companies and I am so proud to have played my role here.

I arrived over from London, post Y2K project on a working holiday visa. I moved into St Kilda with friends and noticed the billboard at St Kilda junction on my travels.

I joined, 18months after it launched and there was only 30 people in total. I joined as a PM, however by the time I left, I was the Project Services Manager which meant I was the team lead for the PM and the BA team as well as 2IC to the CIO. I stayed for 4 years and would have happily stayed for longer, but family reasons took me back to the other side of the world.

I really enjoyed having a role in an organisation with a great culture that was on a fast growth path with the all the challenges associated with budget, scalability and introducing fit for purposes systems and processes that would support scale. It was at SEEK that I learnt it was important to focus on your strengths/core differentiator, i.e. the job board website and outsource non core business, such as finance systems and CRM.
