From Consultant, to Senior Consultant to Team Leader in less than 2 years with the business, Ashley continues to impress us here at Public Sector People and we couldn’t think of anyone better to lead our Technical team. Below Ashley talks about his time at PSP and what this new role means to him.


Why join Design & Build/ Public Sector People?

I joined because of the company culture and I felt my values aligned with the business. Doing right by candidates and clients. I also have a genuine interest in the Public Sector and the Technical roles I recruit given my background in the industry in the UK.


How has your first year within the new PSP team been?

The first year with PSP has been great. So exciting to see the team grow and the team is very collaborative and full of very enthusiastic and talented consultants. The highlight would be the commitment from every single person in the team striving to be an expert in their own individual areas. As a company we are known as specialists and this is proven by the repeat business we get with clients and candidates alike.


What does the promotion to Team Leader mean to you?

The promotion means a lot. I have managed people previously and take great satisfaction in being able to offer support and advice to others. If I can assist my team in continuing to be the most trusted recruitment company in Australia, I will be very happy indeed.


Where do you want to take your career?

I thoroughly enjoy what I do and will continue to dedicate myself to my area of specialism. I would love to support the team in their own development and grow the technical team to further support our clients.


“Ash has taken ownership of his role and reputation within the market and defends it fiercely. He understands that doing the right thing every time is the only way to build a reputation which is sustainable and one which candidates and clients actively seek out his opinion. He has an internal drive to take people on a journey with him and wants the best for the people around him. His want to continually improve I am sure will see him take the opportunity with both hands.”

– Tom Dumper, Managing Director
