Our Sydney team is growing: Meet Dan – Consultant for Social Media & Digital Client Services

DanFitzp_NewStarter2

What were you doing before joining Nakama in Sydney? 

I spent five years in end-to-end retail recruitment. Previous to that I was in the hospitality industry for 12 years!

Why did you choose to move to Sydney?

I chose Sydney because I wanted a lifestyle change. The people are really friendly, there’s so much to do and I get to live by the beach with year round great weather. What else do you need in life?

What’s the coolest thing you’ve done since being in Australia?

I dived the Great Barrier Reef and climbed the Harbour Bridge, two things I’ve wanted to do for a really long time. I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie, so I really want to go bungie jump and maybe even a parachute jump might be on the cards sometime soon!  Also you can’t come to Australia and not try surfing. I’ve also bumped into many kangaroos, which never gets old but still yet to catch a Koala.

What was the hardest part about leaving England? 

Leaving my friends and family behind was pretty hard but I think leaving Casper my Labrador was probably the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Oh and the cat but I don’t think she really misses me all that much.

Why did you decide to enter Recruitment & what do you love about it now? 

It was a complete accident a Resourcer job I took turned into a career in Recruitment.  Once I started Recruitment I loved meeting so many new people every day. Plus you’re always learning regardless of how long you’ve been recruiting and generally every day is different.

What are you known for professionally? 

The person who is really loud & keeps people entertained in the office. Aside from this I like to keep candidates on side and have their best interests at the forefront. I had a great desk in retail and it was always nice to have a lot of them come back to see me or recommend me to others.

What are you doing when you’re not working? 

I’m usually out socialising, at the gym or at the beach seeing as it is at the end of my road. I love my films as well and although the music scene in Sydney is not as good as the UK theres nothing better than live music. 

What would be impossible for you to give up? 

My friends!! What else do you have if you don’t have friends?? Besides them ice cream is probably a very close second.
