Australiance Team: Why have you decided to create your own business?

Karine: After working for various organisations, I wanted to feel that I was really making a difference in the industry while still being challenged and having fun in my job. Which is why I decided to create Orama Recruitment and work more closely with tech startups in Sydney.

I love the thrill of finding THE candidate! And knowing that recruiting the right people for these companies is absolutely crucial makes my job 10 times more interesting.
