3 years ago, I started my journey with Salt and what a journey it has been. 

When I started, there were 40 people, globally! Fast forward to today and we have nearly 200 staff! I still remember my first conversation with Elliot and hearing his passion and vision for this business. It was refreshing to hear such determination to be successful and it was what ultimately got me to join. Admittedly, it hasn't been all smooth sailing. As with any "start-up", which we were here in Australia, it didn't come without its trials and tribulations. Sodium, as we were known back then, was a little fish in a big ocean of formidable recruitment agencies in Australia. However, we persevered and continued to knock on the doors of new clients, rapidly building our client base. We locally built the business to a headcount of 4 and have never looked back- now with 14 people in our Sydney office. 

Over the ensuing years, the business globally added our New York and Dubai offices, before 18 months ago partnering with Salt New Zealand, this slingshotted Salt to 8 offices and nearly 200 staff. 

Personally, I joined as a Consultant and have been promoted twice, to Senior Consultant and subsequently Practice Lead, before moving into my current role of APAC People & Performance Manager. From the time I joined Salt, I was told that the opportunity to grow and develop in my career was there for the taking and I truly believed it.

Salt has been able to provide me with these fantastic opportunities, I am very grateful and appreciative that they delivered on those promises. To be recognised for your hard work and see it pay off is rewarding and I think sometimes forgotten by businesses - staff are your most valuable commodity and biggest advocates when treated well. 

To see, and be involved in, Salt's massive transformation over the last 3 years has been an incredible experience and I know that the years to come are going to be just as exciting.
