Jason Sellyn

Director

In a nutshell: Glasgow to Melbourne was a big move but now I'm settled with my wife, three amazing sons and fantastic business I can't imagine ever going back. When founding TwoScots I was looking for a workplace which would become more than just that and would serve to shake up industries and help people thrive.

Ambitions: Keep growing and sharing our thriving brand and share it with as many people as possible.

In a nutshell: You'll know when you've hit on a subject I'm passionate about; my whole demeanor lights up and I can talk forever. TwoScots fits that category perfectly. Born from a desire to break the stigma of recruitment and offer a service which was a wee bit different, it's surpassed my expectations and I'm proud to have created a business that feels more like an extended family.

Kieran Spillane

Kieran Spillane

Associate Director | Accounting and Finance

In a nutshell: So it turns out Summer Bay doesn't actually exist, but that hasn't quite tainted my Australian experience having moved from Ireland in 2019. I've always loved all things sport, music and animals so Melbourne is a dream as is my leadership role where I can work across and influence multiple disciplines.

Ambitions: To own three dogs, beat James in table tennis and watch Essendon win the Grand Final. Oh, also to continue to grow and nurture my teams, I'm in for the long haul.

Business Manager | Senior Finance

In a nutshell:My pathway into the recruitment industry was a little different from the usual; getting to love the industry after running membership and partnerships for the recruitment, consulting and staffing association.

Ambitions: To continue to influence and contribute to the recruitment industry whilst continuing to lead as a specialist in the senior finance space.

Emily Whitehead

Emily Whitehead

Marketing Manager

In a nutshell: What's the best way to scare your parents? Call them from your holiday in Thailand to say you're not coming home. Well, that was me! Since moving from windy Lancashire to Melbourne, via four months in Asia, I've been working with innovative brands and striving to shake up the industries they exist in.

Ambitions: To make more waves for TwoScots whilst continuing to learn. I'd also love to write a best selling novel and be awarded the Booker Prize - no point in dreaming small!

Annabel Mitchell-Heggs

Annabel Mitchell-Heggs

Business Manager

In a nutshell: I'm the epitome of a people person. I thrive in a social setting where I can share opportunities and enrich experiences, it's why I got into recruitment in the first place. I moved to Melbourne from London seeking beachside adventures and the challenge of agency recruitment after starting my career on the internal side.

Ambitions: To grow my division to the level in which I create new opportunities for others and myself - Melbourne and TwoScots are both my new home!

Sophie Masson

Sophie Masson

Divisional Lead | Temporary Contracts

In a nutshell: I believe experiences are the richest currency you can have. That's why I've worked in my hometown of County Down, in Disneyland Florida, at a camp in Pennsylvania, as well as recruiting in Darwin and Melbourne (plus a stint on a dairy farm!). It's also why I love finding the perfect opportunity and experience to my candidates within my four year recruitment career. I can't wait to share my life experiences in Australia with family and friends in Ireland one day very soon.

Ambitions: To further develop my professional network and ability to intuitively match professionals in Melbourne before advancing to management within TwoScots. Personally, I'd love a puppy to complete my Australian family!

Yasmine Shrebati

Yasmine Shrebati

Business Manager

In a nutshell:  I'm motivated by growing myself and others around me - if you give me a challenge I'll step up to the mark and nail it everytime, no matter how much work it takes. That's how I got into recruitment; by constantly excelling and being offered new responsibilities until I found the parts that I loved. It's the same with travel, it's always the places you've thought of the least that take your breath away.

Ambitions: To keep on growing, learning and achieving, whilst visiting 50 countries before I turn 30.

Aisling Flynn

Aisling Flynn

In a nutshell: My career so far has been a journey. From working as a HR specialist back home in Ireland through to recruiting for some of Australia's biggest household names and don't even mention my stint as a banana sorter! Passion for travel and adventure is what took me up to the bananas in Far North Queensland. Where else? It guided me through Europe by rail, dipped me in Iceland's Blue Lagoons before my final destination of Melbourne and now TwoScots.

Ambitions: Become a go-to expert to my clients, candidates and colleagues and complete my Australian family with a puppy of my own.

In a nutshell: Coming over from Cork, my biggest ambition was to travel every landscape in Australia and I'm pretty much there (excluding a much needed trip to Tasmania)! From diving with whalesharks through to Turquoise Bay, even a year in Sydney before finding my home and recruitment career in Melbourne. Now I'm settled here with my boyfriend and kitten I've even started exploring my creative side by DJ-ing.

Hazel Condon

Hazel Condon

Principal Consultant

In a nutshell: When deciding where to go after leaving Limerick, it was down to Melbourne or Milan; but with friends and an envious lifestyle, Melbourne won the day! Friendships and connections have served me well, seeing a housemate in recruitment drew me to my career and then a connection in Limerick introduced me to TwoScots to a culture where I can nurture my ambitions and passion for people.

Ambitions: Become a real specialist in temporary staffing for the finance niche in Melbourne, all whilst travelling Australia and seeing the sights!

Rhys Rubio-Senior

Rhys Rubio-Senior

Principal Consultant

In a nutshell: Recruitment seemed my style immediately; I love to get out, meet and get to know people. It's also why TwoScots seemed just right on moving over from the UK, you can recruit in any agency but it's the people who make it a more interesting place to work.

Ambitions:
Really establish myself as a specialist in the Melbourne finance market - and to retire by 40!

Megan Allen

Megan Allen

Senior Principal Consultant

In a nutshell: Arriving in Australia on Christmas Day in 2019, tired but full of adrenaline, I had no idea what was to come! I did know that I had a ready built community of friends who made it feel like home pretty quickly and managed to step into a career I'd been interested in since finishing my HR Management degree. Again, joining TwoScots felt like the right decision after friends in the business told me about the culture, progression and opportunities on offer.

Ambitions: To bed myself further into my team whilst learning more and more management skills - with a quick stopover in Bali now the borders are open!

Now I'm in the industry I'm really enjoying the sociable nature of the job as well as the vast opportunities on offer.

Ambitions: To develop my expertise as a go-to recruiter and give any career opportunity a shot! That mixed with a bit more travel sounds perfect.

In a nutshell: Melbourne wasn't my first stop over from my hometown of Galway; with a year-long stint in Greece chasing the weather through to securing more time in Australia via six months in Shepparton, it's been a journey getting here! Now I'm here I'm so happy to be part of TwoScots, a business that makes me feel like that first day in Melbourne, excited for the experience and ready for the challenges ahead.

Charlie West

Charlie West

Principal Consultant

In a nutshell: Recruitment was always the career I was aspiring to. So many of my friends in the industry seemed to be successful whilst loving what they did. That's when TwoScots came into the picture, seeing people within a culture that pushed them to be exceptional all whilst having fun at the same time was the perfect mix I was after. On the weekends you'll find me sampling the best Melbourne has to offer with a little bit of DJ-ing on the side!

Ambitions: To be the trusted specialist that people refer their friends and colleagues to, I want building relationships to be my real specialism.

In a nutshell: I love a challenge, whether it's diving with manta rays or creating my network within TwoScots' renowned payroll division. Recruitment fits my love of talking to people and ultimately being part of their personal journeys and after a recommendation from a previous colleague at TwoScots, I haven't looked back from the collaborative culture.

Ambitions: The payroll division at TwoScots has an incredible reputation and I want to be a core part of that and a real go-to for that market.

Anita Kuklych

Anita Kuklych

Principal Consultant

In a nutshell: As a Bayside girl I don’t think there’s a more perfect day than walking down for a morning by the ocean before sitting down to share a meal and wine with friends. My love for people and guiding them to be the best they can be definitely influenced my step into recruitment as well as the competitive nature, daily challenges and constant variety of the industry.

Ambitions: To be able to mentor and nurture employees - I think I’d make a great manager one day!

Ramona Hart

Ramona Hart

Marketing Coordinator

In a nutshell: Life is full of surprises, and when I was given the opportunity to move from London to Geelong in 2022 (accompanied by my furry companion, Pippa, the Sproodle), I leapt into the unknown! I have worked in Marketing and Social Media for a wide range of companies since graduating with a degree in Advertising in 2018. If there's anything that travelled with me, it's my passion for creativity and helping companies try new strategies and succeed together. Wellness also has always been a huge part of my life, and I recently had an awakening about the benefits of good employee culture, which initially attracted me to work with Two Scots.

Ambitions: I aspire to deepen my marketing acumen and recruitment knowledge, staying abreast of emerging trends while carving a path of growth within TwoScots. I’d also love to travel more around Australia and eat & drink my way through Melbourne’s best restaurants and bars!

 

Katie Gray

Katie Gray

Recruitment Consultant | Accounting Support

In a nutshell: From losing my passion for teaching in Dubai to finding my niche in recruitment upon returning to the UK, life has been a series of unexpected turns. Communication and relationships are personal strengths of mine, making recruitment the perfect industry for me. The allure of Australia, coupled with all the family I have living here in Melbourne, drew me down under, where TwoScots stood out as a beacon of opportunity.

Why TwoScots? It was more than just a job; it was an instant connection—a workplace where cultural fit mattered as much as experience. No other company compared to the welcoming and warm feeling I had when I came in for an interview.

Ambitions: Travel has always been my compass. I’ve travelled to amazing destinations like Bali, Zanzibar, and The Philippines, and I hope to explore more amazing destinations during my time in Australia. Additionally, I am excited to delve into the intricacies of the Australian recruitment market, further honing my skills and expertise in this dynamic field.
