We loved catching up with Lily, who has a common theme in all her (work and volunteer) pursuits that stem from her purpose of helping others grow.
Hi Lily. What’s your role at Method?
I am a Senior Consultant across Digital and Marketing Positions in Melbourne.
I recruit across a variety of marketing roles in Melbourne. Furthermore, I have four and a half years experience in this space and just over 6 years of recruitment experience.
What’s the best thing about your role?
I have a real passion for the space I recruit in, I love talking everything marketing. Hence why I often find myself upskilling in the space in my own time. However, my favourite part of my job is the ability to influence a massive part of someone’s life and help shape their career. It’s the best feeling having found someone their dream job. Also, the ability to keep in touch with those people I’ve place and see how they have grown in their new role!
What do you tell your mates about Method?
Work doesn’t feel like work when you are surrounded by friends! Although I’ve been with Method for just under a year, I can truly say I have found some lifelong friends here. We have such a great time in the office and outside of work that it really makes work a fun place to be!
What do you do outside of work that you are passionate about?
In my spare time I volunteer as a committee member for a not for profit organisation called Marketing Women Inc.. This is an organisation that was built for women in marketing by women in marketing.
It is designed to help to support, educate and inspire women in marketing in their professional career development. We provide a platform for women at all levels of their career. And across a range of different industries to network, connect and learn from each other.
It’s an amazing platform to help individuals network. Marketing Women Inc is built up of by such inspiring women – on the committee and on our mentor programs. I am really passionate about it. It’s a really rewarding way to help others navigate their career in marketing. I love encouraging women to strive for those senior leadership roles!
If you would like to find out more follow Marketing Women Inc on Linkedin to find out how you can get involved.
What is something we might not know about you?
I have a huge love of dogs, I would have 5 if I could! Unfortunately I’m not in a position to have one at the moment so instead I am a regular at fostering dogs. It’s heartbreaking to give them away when they are adopted but it’s the most rewarding thing. You go on a journey with each dog, they always have such different individual personalities. Because of this, each time I get closer and closer to adopting them myself.
