When did you start with Acden?: July 2011
What was your career path to get where you are now? I came to Acden with a broad range of administration experience and after a year in my role as HR Administrator, I progressed into recruitment. I had just completed the 2nd year of my Business Administration Diploma as well as a Certificate in Human Resources.

I love Acden’s commitment to work-life balance and our open door policy which gives me the chance to work with all levels of the organization creating a family-like environment. Acden’s Corporate Headquarters is an incredible building and thinking green plays into every part of how we do business – I’m proud to work for Acden.
What are the main services offered by your current business unit? My team includes business development management, analysts, marketing and communications. We explore new business opportunities, partnerships, corporate development, community participation, advertising & marketing, sponsorship, corporate communications and client relations. I work with all departments within the company, coordinate events, inform our organization of key opportunities to engage with clients & partners, and work directly with our Executives to support them wherever necessary.
What is your favourite thing about Acden? We have a great team environment. Acden is warm, welcoming and we are always encouraged to advance our learning. I feel really supported in my role.
Can you share a work related story or success you have experienced within the company? I have watched the company build many new partnerships and double in size while – I take pride in being a part of this growth in such a short period of time.
