Keelan Gand-Hunt

Senior Recruitment Consultant

Where are you from?

Originally from the Eastern suburbs Melbourne, but have spent the last 8 years overseas. Mainly in the UK.

What's your past work experience?

Started out doing outbound sales for Foxtel in a call Centre, real baptism of fire that one! Then after moved into sales\HR for Vodaphone Aus. Missing the face to face element I became an Account Manager for the Entertainment book (a fundraiser/marketing company). Here I had the privilege to work with Make a Wish Foundation, Cancer council and other large charitable organizations. I then took the leap overseas where I entered the world of Education recruitment. After a couple of years honing my craft, I was promoted to Senior consultant and began to build my own team and pass on what had made me successful.

Tell us about yourself...

I'm a cricket tragic (for my sins) and enjoy watching/playing as much as possible. On the flip side I'm a bit of cinephile and love all things film. I studied film and acting at school and it has always been a passion of mine. If you have a Pub Quiz section on movies, I'm your man. Interesting facts - I've appeared on a couple of TV shows, sadly only minor roles but you got to start somewhere ;)

What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

- Control the controllable.
- Be easy to Manage.
