Rachel Perkins

Director

I am a seasoned agency recruiter with more than 15 years experience recruiting locally and internationally and am also a qualified Social Worker (BSW) so spent my former years positioning myself as a leading recruiter within the health and community sector. In 2011 and whilst on parental leave, I launched JustMums Recruitment, a successful and niche agency established to support working mums and have been a Semi-Finalist (top 6) in the Australian Women’s Weekly Women in Business Awards (2016), recipient of the Northern Business Achievement Awards (2015) and a Telstra Business Woman of the year nominee.

I am originally from Adelaide and spent almost 4 years in London before calling Melbourne home. I am a Mum of two (three if you count my fur baby) and struggle with work-life balance daily. I am passionate about giving back and serve on the board of charity organisation PartnerSpeak.

When I am not working you will find me spending time with family and friends, travelling, watching the footy and drinking champagne (sometimes all at once).
