Meet The Team – Gemma Haworth

Gemma

How would you describe your job to someone who knew nothing about the interim search industry?
I’d say we introduce executives who are excited about and choose Interim Portfolio as a career to businesses requiring immediate support and high-level expertise.

What inspired you to work in the industry?
Having already provided recruitment solutions to the Public Sector for 13 years I’ve seen an increasing need for Interim Managers/Executives. I’m inspired to support exceptional talent across a broad range of industries.

Who is the most influential person you’ve ever met? (And why).
I’d have to say my older sister. Watching her run her own business whilst raising two young children with her husband shows me many attributes and skills I aspire to.

What’s the one thing that gets you out of bed in the morning?
Apart from my morning yoga routine, I’d have to say the satisfaction in bringing together Interim Executives with businesses in need.

What’s your biggest career achievement to date?
Developing my career in the big smoke! Coming from a small town in Wales, I’m humbled and thankful for the opportunities I’ve gained here in Sydney and looking forward to it continuing.

If you never had to work again, how would you spend your time?
I’d probably go on quite a few yoga retreats but would still want to work in some capacity whether voluntary or charity focused.
