Kayla Densley is our Senior Recruitment Consultant, based in Melbourne. This is her story.

What has been your path to PERSOLKELLY?

I began my career in Recruitment after I graduated from University with a Bachelor of Business, majoring in Human Resource Management. I took a break from recruitment and moved into the travel industry over a five-year period when I lived in Canada and the UK.

I realised that I had a passion for Recruitment however, and when I moved back to my hometown of Melbourne in 2019, I wanted to embark on a long-term career, which is when I joined PERSOLKELLY. A decision I’m extremely happy with as I’ve recently been promoted to Senior Recruitment Consultant through the career pathways program.

What roles have you held at PERSOLKELLY?

I started as a Recruitment Consultant and have recently been promoted to a Senior Recruitment Consultant.

Did you learn different skills?

I did, I had to learn to be more consultative with clients and earn their trust and confidence that I was the person who is going to solve their staffing needs.

What kind of opportunities have you been given at PERSOLKELLY?

I’ve been given opportunities to develop my skill set and tackle new challenges by working on a wide range of positions within the Professional Services sector.

Through PERSOLKELLY’s quarterly rewards and recognition program, I’ve been lucky enough to be recognised as Consultant of the Quarter. I was grateful and appreciative that my hard work and persistence was recognised!

The Victorian team, which I’m part of, has also been recognised as Team of the Quarter. It’s such a pleasure to be a part of a successful team and it’s also refreshing to work for a company that rewards their staff for their efforts.

How do you feel PERSOLKELLY provides you with flexibility and work/life balance.  

I feel positive around work/life balance and supported by the business. As I’m based in Melbourne, I’ve been working remotely for quite some time and have always felt supported by the Business and Leadership during the COVID-19 period.

We’re always on the hunt for great people to join our team. If you’re confident and caring, proactive and passionate, smart and resourceful, and want to kick-start or continue your career in helping others achieve their career goals, then we’d love to hear from you.
