Here's 5 minutes with Ian Bond...
Who inspires you?
Not one specific person stands out, I think it’s more the attributes of drive and passion in a particular person I meet which inspire me.
Which four individuals, living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with the most?
Joe Rogan, Micky Flannagan, DJ EZ, Bill gates (so he can pay for dinner).
Where’s your favourite place in the world?
So far Thailand and Bali, but Australia is pretty close as well at the moment and I’m sure will become number one, once it's warmed up and I’ve explored more.
Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?
My French bulldog puppy Gary, as he tends to get his own way regardless of what I say and spends 80% of his day sleeping!
What’s the last book you read?
A Ross Kemp one a while ago, when I was on holiday. Tend to listen to podcasts and am currently listening to a few different recruitment ones.
What are you passionate about?
Being the best I can be at whatever I do, be it in my personal or work life. I struggle to switch off so am always re-evaluating my days on how I can improve etc
What’s the most helpful way for you to get feedback?
Using our Recruiter Insider feedback tool which we send to both candidates and clients during the recruitment process, to ask for an honest opinion on how they feel the service we gave was, to essentially enable us to improve as consultants and as a business.
What’s your secret talent that no one knows about?
I can eat 3 Big Macs in circa 4 minutes.
What are you currently watching on Netflix?
Orange is the new black.
What’s the coolest job you’re working on right now?
HSE Advisor role with an established Tier 3 builder in Melbourne, who are looking for a dynamic and driven HSEQ individual to join the business to focus on being intimately involved with their system development and compliance with 4801. They will also need to be able to prepare for accreditation audits.
