Penny works autonomously across a client book of 35 agencies, seeking strategic advice from The Pond’s directors where needed.
Since joining The Pond in 2015, Penny has rapidly grown her role and now operates as a genuine strategic partner with our clients, working collaboratively with the team to secure the ultimate ‘best fit’ for every role.
She has a Bachelor of Commerce degree in Human Resource Management, Industrial Relations and Management, a desire to make everyone happy, and a thoroughly can-do attitude.
“Agencies must often be able to scale up their human resources at a moment’s notice to meet tight deadlines with maximum creative grunt – and that’s where The Pond comes in handy. We’re amazing at fulfilling fast-turnaround briefs from our database of top creative, digital, and marketing talent,” says Penny.
“We’re incredibly loyal to our clients and we take real care of our candidates. Creative professionals strongly identify themselves with what they do – we really get that. So we help them manage their expectations around workflow and offer career advice where appropriate to help them maximise their potential.”
Outside work, Penny is a creative soul who previously flirted with the worlds of acting and photography before finding a niche in recruitment.
Penny is the positive, professional, and understanding person you should contact when you need just exactly the right person to tackle your most critical briefs.
Dabbled in performing arts at university. My doodles of hearts and flowers may yet make me famous. I also did media studies and journalism if you consider that to be creative.
Playing Alice in Alice in Wonderland when I was 10 years old, which involved singing 10 solos to a crowd of 500 people. (All modesty aside, I’m still, to this day, world famous at Tauranga Primary School.)
Ridiculously early morning exercise, drinking superior red wine, and writing long ‘to do’ lists.
