My original career path looked very different. I was a pharmacist, encouraged to get into healthcare by my father. But the draw towards business studies was too strong, so after gaining my masters degree in International Business at Wollong University I took my first role in a local bank, where I quickly moved through the ranks to become a Relationship Manager.
I’d been recommended to the recruitment team at Standard Chartered, so I was delighted to get a call from the Talent Acquisition specialist. The only issue was timing, as I was on the labour ward, about to have my first child, so I had to tell them I was otherwise indisposed! But two weeks after coming home with my baby, I returned the call and joined as a Credit Analyst after my maternity leave.
