National Manager - Sales
Originally stemming from the UK, Ralph has amassed almost a decade of local recruitment experience in Australia, both within boutique and global top 3 settings.
Ralph’s recruitment journey started in 2012, quickly progressing through the ranks to become APAC Lead for a sales & marketing specialist recruitment agency, where he drove the team and undertook high-level campaigns. After 7 years, he then progressed to a multinational agency to lead the NSW & ACT Permanent Recruitment division across 5 sites, scooping ‘Sales Manager of the Year’ nationally in his first year along the way.
He has worked across a variety of areas, including contingent assignments, retained, exclusive, volume, graduate campaigns, sales team build-outs, RPO, key account and project leadership. With his extensive sales and marketing experience, Ralph has a genuine passion for this area, he has particular experience in healthcare, pharmacy, consumer goods and FMCG. He thrives on forming friendly, trusted partnerships with clients and candidates, with an informal yet professional and transparent approach. His flair for the FMCG space is driven by working with colourful characters in the industry, promoting everyday brands we can all connect with.
At the weekend, you’ll likely find Ralph down at the beach, attempting (poorly) to surf, sinking a beer with mates, exploring ‘the great outdoors’ or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. His other keen interest is following his favourite Premier League team, West Ham United, like a true Pommy of course!
What is important to you?
For me, most importantly, family, but also keeping active in the gym, listening to music, downtime at the beach and I’m also a bit of a foodie.
What is something quirky about you?
I’ve worked on a banana farm in far North Queensland for four months, that was a real eye-opener! I met some great people along the way.
What is it about the recruitment industry that motivates you?
I am driven by the satisfaction of seeing someone land a job they are really passionate about, there is something quite unique about finding the right match for client and candidate. You spend most of your life at work, so what not do something you love?
My teammates would describe me as…
Laidback and approachable, I try not to take things too seriously.
