Biller Rollercoaster | Isobel Stevenson – Private Equity Executive Search, working remotely in Bali and living down under with Hunted.

This week I’m joined by Isobel Stevenson from Hunted. 

After falling into recruitment through starting her journey running a fine art gallery, Isobel has successfully conquered Executive Search, remote working and now R2R in the last five years. 

She has had a breadth of experience not only in recruitment but also working in Bali, Australia as well as diving into the world of remote working. 

For recruiters who are curious about the world of Search, remote working and Recruitment in Australia, you need to give this one a listen as it gets under the skin of all three of these topics. 

For the junior consultants out there, this is an excellent podcast to educate yourself further on the path recruitment can take you on, as well as companies who embrace flexible working and the positives and negatives of it.
