So, 2 days in with empire group and already feel like I have come home! Which has not happened in my career to date. So, at the ripe age of 47 I may have found my eclectic tribe. A little about me, 25 years in recruitment, initiation in engineering and construction white collar in London, then Adelaide, not a bizarre contrast at all!
My experience includes growing two teams at Hays and Talent2, before I started my own recruitment business working from home, so I could be with my son as he recovered from his cancer treatment. After 5 years, he would be okay, and I could confidently be an employee again. I joined SAGE Group where I grew a boutique- recruitment business from scratch. 7 staff, 4 years and $7.2 million in revenue later, I have joined empire group as their new General Manager.
As General Manager I will focus on strategic growth of the national business and to ensure everyone has what they need to be successful and satisfied in their work. Two days in, I’ve met most of the amazing team. I’m looking forward to focusing on understanding the business, and the people, and achieving our life goals together with commitment, accountability, and laughter.
On a personal level I have 4 children aged between 23 – 6 yep not very conventional, I have a small kids and teens yoga business focused on ADHD and ASD, which I adore and learn more from than anything else.
I try to embrace my own bizarre combination of commercial business ambition with a deep respect for spirituality, and the practices required to ensure an authentic, present, and meaningful approach to life. Michelle Sneesby you are brilliant, your business is excellent, and your team is exceptional. Cannot wait to be part of it all.
