Robert Walters Queensland Director, Sinead Hourigan, has been elected as President of the Recruitment & Consulting Services Association of Australia & New Zealand. 

Sinead’s commitment to the RCSA and experience in the recruitment sector were an integral part of the vote of confidence from her peers for the role of President and continues to be a key motivator for her to be a part of the organisation: 

“One of the reasons I joined the RCSA was to continue my support for the association to enhance the professionalism of our sector.  I am wholly committed to ensure we are viewed as a partner in professional services by our clients and our employees are recognised by both their clients and candidates for the exceptional work they do.”

Speaking about her key areas of focus for the 2018 RSCA strategy, Sinead outlined the following as initial priorities for the board: 

  • Increase engagement with RCSA’s regional members to ensure they have a stronger voice
  • Develop strategies to harness and retain promising young talent within the sector
  • Continue to enhance the profile and professionalism across the industry

As well as raising the profile of the industry and the direct impact of the work recruitment consultancies have on the wider business community, as the first female President of the RCSA, Sinead is also dedicated to ensuring that there is gender balance in leadership and that young talent in the industry is harnessed to create future leaders: 

“We have so many wonderful young members entering the industry who are doing remarkable work and driving new practices with technology for the future world of work. I want to ensure we engage and support them; it’s fundamental to the ongoing success of the industry to develop talent and listen to their voices as they have so much value to add.”
