Joel comes to Six Degrees Executive with over a years’ experience in recruitment, previously specialising in residential construction recruitment. He comes on board with the enthusiasm and knowledge to join our Engineering and Operations team.

Joel has taken the road less travelled to recruitment, as his working life kicked off with his own breakfast radio program, “Wake Up with Joel”. After five years with Southern Cross Austereo in regional Western Australia, the 3am wakeup time started to grow a little thin, which led Joel to take his gift of the gab and go into real estate.

After a stint with real estate throughout regional WA, Joel heard the call of the Big Smoke and made the coast-to-coast move to settle down in Melbourne. Joel spent his first year in Melbourne selling Subarus before getting his foot in the door in recruitment. Since his short time working in the industry, Joel has recruited and placed for high profile roles, including a $600,000 Sales Management position for one of the most recognised building companies in Australia.

Not only does Joel bring a wealth of industry knowledge and enthusiasm to Six Degrees Executive, but he brings with him his exceptional karaoke skills, as proven by his ability to rap every word to Biggie Smalls’ ‘Juicy’.

Joel’s passion for recruitment lies in his love of people. Meeting new people every day and finding them their dream jobs is what keeps him motivated, and this couldn’t be more evident in his personal motto, “Do the hard jobs first. The easy jobs will take care of themselves” (Dale Carnegie).
