Just less than one year into her career with Design & Build, Lauren has continued to impress us with her hard work ethic and level of care for her clients and candidates, therefore, we are delighted to announce that she has been promoted to Senior Consultant. Let’s hear a little from Lauren about why she chose Design & Build, what the promotion means to her and where her career is heading...
So Lauren, what was the attraction to join Design & Build just last year?
Their vision to be the most trusted agency resonated with me. Recruiters get a bad rep sometimes for wanting to make a quick buck and not genuinely caring about what they do, so I wanted to join a company that prioritise doing right by their candidates and clients which I believe D&B genuinely do. Other than that, working with a great team where we can have a laugh in the office and blow off some steam on a Friday definitely helps too!
What does the promotion to Senior Consultant mean to you?
It was a nice start to the year! After having recruited in the residential space for just over 2 years, I’m proud that I can now say I’m the go-to for a lot of residential candidates and clients here in VIC. It’s good to know my honest and genuine approach has paid off and I’m excited to continue utilising my network to help my clients grow their teams and candidates find their perfect role, as well as growing the residential team.
"Lauren has been an incredibly valuable member of the team since starting with D&B January last year. We’ve been impressed with how quickly Lauren adopted to the D&B way along with living to the values of the business in her relationships with clients, candidates and colleagues. I’m looking forward to watching Lauren continue to grow with D&B!"

Congratulations on making the Top 5 on Recruiter Insider for candidate experience this past quarter. What does this award mean to you?
Changing jobs is a stressful time for anyone, so it’s rewarding to hear that I’ve been able to make that process a bit easier and more enjoyable for people. At the end of the day they’re putting in the work and their trust in me to find them the right opportunity so I think it’s important I do everything I can to support them along the way.
Where do you want to take your career?
I love being a part of the construction industry and having the opportunity to make a real impact on businesses and people’s career, so I hope to be the go-to consultant for candidates and clients in the residential construction space in 2020 and beyond. With the residential market back on the up, I’m also looking forward to seeing the residential team continue to grow!
