Miller Leith on the wall

Principal Consultant - Sales, Marketing & Digital

Born in Shanghai and raised in Melbourne, Australia. In 2012, Serena decided it was time for a scenery change and has loved it since.

Serena’s recruitment journey started in 2014 within a boutique agency specialising in the Hospitality and Tourism recruiting across a myriad of different sectors. Wanting to strengthen her recruitment experience and aspiration, Serena branched out to work for a global recruitment agency and later on within a global cruise line where she was in charge of both the HR and Talent function for APAC.

At Miller Leith, Serena specialises in Sales and prides herself on building an unforgettable candidate experience and solid client relationships by being personable, attentive, and making the journey for all parties enjoyable.

Outside of work, Serena is a true foodie, and loves exploring new restaurants, bars and markets with her close friends.

What’s important to you?
I am an avid animal lover so volunteering in animal shelters or spending time with my own cats and dog is very important to me. I also value a close network of friends whom I can share all my experiences with, they are essentially like my family especially as mine lives in another state.

What is something quirky about you?
I don’t know how to ride a bicycle and yes, I’m still on those training wheels!

What motivates you about the Recruitment Industry?
Being able to wholeheartedly help a business or an individual and the satisfaction you get by building those relationships. Some of my close personal networks today have been from previous businesses and candidates I have supported.

My teammates would describe me as…
Full of beans, fun, outgoing, realist and caring.
