Meet Krystle who has joined our Business Support team in Melbourne to focus on Accounting and Finance roles. Krystle has almost 10 years of recruiting experience and brings a wealth of experience to our Melbourne team. Let's hear about her experience and why she joined Design & Build from Krystle herself...


What was the attraction to join D&B?

Design and Build have a great reputation in the industry, and I have only ever heard amazing things about D&B.  it was important for me to join a professional (and fun!)  organisation where relationships and trust were important both externally and internally.


What does building trust mean to you?

Trust to me is building relationships with people where they feel safe and secure… in recruitment it is important to trust your consultant, to know that they understand what want and like from the process and to know that in their hands your recruitment needs will be safe. Trust with your colleagues is also very important and if you have this in a workplace it doesn’t feel like work!


What do you enjoy about recruiting business support roles?

I love the connections I am able to make with both candidates and clients in this sector, it’s all about finding the right fit for clients and being able to really consultant on their needs!


Tell us 3 fun facts about yourself…

  • Proud mum of two fur babies – Jolie the Frenchie and Duke the Boxer
  • I love to Travel and chase the sun… there is nothing better than drinking a cocktail by the pool with a good book!
  • I love a good sweat session before work to wake me up and set me up for the day!


What is your proudest accomplishment?

Next year will be my 10th year in recruitment (I know… it’s hard to believe as I’m only 24!) This is a big accomplishment in our industry and one that has taught me resilience and persistence. I’m excited to see where my next ten years take me with D&B


What is your biggest fear?

Biggest fear would have to be heights and spiders (hopefully this won’t be used against me for team building activity in the future!) Ha-Ha


If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

Melbourne! Why would you want to live anywhere else?


What motivates you to work hard?

Knowing that my clients and candidates are being looked after. I take pride in the relationships I have built over my time in recruitment and the trust that people put in me. I am the type of person who won’t stop until we get the result we are after!
