I joined Port Jackson Partners in 2016 after beginning my career
at CBA. While I found my time at the bank extremely rewarding,
three unique opportunities attracted me to PJP: access to
organisations' most pressing strategic issues, exposure across a
broad range of industries, and the rapid development of
well-rounded commercial skills and knowledge.
Early in your career, it can sometimes be challenging to find
roles in a large organisation that allow you to have a significant
commercial impact. At PJP, clients engage us to work on only their
most pressing strategic and organisational challenges. This means
that the work that you do and the ideas and insight you contribute
One of the things I most enjoy about working at Port Jackson
Partners is the culture of ongoing professional development.
At the beginning of a project, we take time to
discuss our development goals as a team and we support one another
to achieve them.
I have found all of my colleagues generous with their
time and knowledge, and I have found that working in small and
Principal-intensive teams provides ample opportunity to learn from
some of Australia's most trusted business advisors.
In my experience, a good workplace culture is very important for
your day to day enjoyment at work. The culture at PJP friendly,
open and collaborative and my colleagues welcoming, intelligent and
increasingly diverse. This means there are lots of interesting
people to bounce ideas off and very enjoyable lunchtime banter.
Work life balance
While management consulting can be a demanding business, PJP
understands the importance of a balanced life. Outside of work, I
have a regular poker game with friends, play my ever growing
collection of musical instruments, and get out in the surf as often
as I can.
