Melinda joined the VIQU team in November 2021 to support our internal growth. She originally studied journalism, before moving into recruitment in 2006. Melinda has a wealth of agency recruitment experience, 17 years in fact, and ran her own successful recruitment business for 11 of those years. She’s recruited, trained, onboarded, career mapped and managed agency operations, but her true passion is people - perfect for her role as Head of Talent at VIQU!

With two young children and a career she's passionate about, Melinda is always busy. However, Christmas is when Melinda's organisational skills truly shine. She's so obsessed with December 25th that her family joke she was one of Santa's elves in a previous life!

  • Dream job as a child?

  • I wanted to be an actress or a film director. I studied speech and drama for a few years before going into journalism. I loved being on the stage and even had my 5 minutes of fame hosting my own radio show on community radio for 3 years!

  • What's on your bucket list?

  • Travelling! I’d love to go to New York, the Weihnachtsmarkt in Nuremberg, and explore Rome.

  • Do you have any advice for someone wanting to go into recruitment?

  • Recruitment epitomises the quote: "If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life"
