"I'm in this business because I love it."
Sandy has built her successful career around her genuine interest in advertising and communications generally, and the creative, dynamic and sometimes rather different people who are attracted to the industry.
Sandy left a successful 12 year career in account management to set up Sandy Oldham People because she felt she had something different to offer both the people looking to find jobs and those with the jobs that needed to be filled.
And her instincts proved to be spot on.
For well over a decade now, Sandy has grown her company into one of the most successful and respected specialist recruiters in the business.
Her experience and high level connections give her the edge when it comes to placing exceptionally able and talented people in high profile positions. Her local and international roles in blue-chip agencies like McCanns, BBDO and O&M have given her first hand understanding of what candidates and clients are looking for.
"I tell people to follow their heart, because that's what worked for me."
Melanie knows that no-one can last long in advertising unless they really have a passion for it. She knows because that has been her experience too.
Like Sandy, Melanie’s background in senior account management in some of the world’s most respected agencies gives her the experience and insight to understand the needs of both clients and candidates. Her 12 years at FCB, Mojo, Grey and GPY&R (in both Australia and New Zealand) combined with her naturally warm and empathic personality have combined to create a first class ability to match the right candidate with the right employer.
