Introducing Barber Consulting… my recommended specialist recruiter for the Banking & Financial Services industry

I’ve spoken before about the importance of Good Guys in advancing women as leaders.  Daniel Barber certainly fits this bill – and comes with rave reviews from the employers he has recruited for as well as the talent he has sourced.  Whether you’re an employer looking to secure more female talent on your team, or you’re a woman looking for a new role in banking and finance, you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t put Barber Consulting at the top of your list.

“We use the most powerful recruitment tool known to man… our ears”

Barber Consulting was created to provide a high quality, straight forward recruitment and consultancy service to its candidates and clients. Their consultants – who have extensive experience within financial markets, as well as both domestic and international recruitment – are absolutely committed to advancing women.  

We’ve all heard the stories about employers who “really want to bring more senior women onto their teams… but just can’t find them”.  The good news is Barber Consulting has an extensive network and because they’re able to rely on referrals and strong relationships for most of their business, they really understand the importance of discretion.  

They’re not trying to reinvent the wheel and they don’t have a funky new approach – quite the opposite, in fact – this recruiter just wants to stand by their reputation of getting the right person for the right job. Which they have done time and time again, according to their clients that I’ve spoken with.

You can find all the contact details for Barber Consulting on our new sphinxx recommendations page.

What are the lessons you’re teaching your kids? We took the opportunity of a holiday long weekend to visit my mum interstate as the timing of the trip coincided with my son’s favourite AFL team battling it out against my mum’s beloved team. Perhaps only those of you with the love for AFL will appreciate why we’d plan a long distance trip around a game of footy, but suffice to say it was a passion project! With every ounce of anticipation, the game was a tough, tight duel and could easily have gone either way. Yet when the final siren sounded, it wasn’t our team that was smiling. It sure is tough for a 10 year old boy to sit within a crowd 41,000+ people all cheering for the opposite side. It was tough for him to see the exhaustion and disappointment on the faces of the players he adores. And yet, it’s so important for him to learn that his team won’t always win. There’s so many lessons in that, but the one I chose to instil is that you won’t always back the team that wins but you’ll always back the team that you love. That’s why I asked him to wear his team colours home the next day, and show his support even when the chips are down. That’s the kind of commitment I want my son to learn and the kind of team player I want him to be. PS. #gotheGiants @GWSGiants #neversurrender ... See MoreSee Less

I haven’t been here in a while as the writing has been on hold. But I was reminded today that there are things in our life that light us up. That might take us out of our comfort zone but, once you sit with it, bring you both joy and a sense of “I can do this” achievement. These moments are such a gift. So I’m curious, what’s your special thing that lights you up?

Despite (or in spit of) my professional career, these moments for me normally involve my horses. I’ll never be an equestrian Olympian, but I take great pleasure in all the lessons my horses teach me. They remind me that it’s a team effort, we’re in it together, and that if I’m prepared to give a little bit more, they will too. That’s true whether we’re on the ground taking care of their feet, or grooming, or when I’m atop riding as one. Two hearts one team.
It’s hard to describe the adrenaline and joy they bring to my life. But I’d love to know, what lights you up??

And so, maybe time does change some things. Or women do.
