Q + A with the newest member of our Talent Advocate team – Priya Amulraj

Meet Priya

It’s already been a big year for us at affix, and we knew we couldn’t do without the pocket rocket that is Priya! Bringing with her a wealth of technical experience, our newest teammate tackles each new challenge with an engineer’s mindset – because she is one! 

Priya proves to us just how flexible your career can be, and advocates for remote-first environments that make space for more talented women in tech, just like her. We’re sure she’ll teach us a thing or two, knowing firsthand how much the modern-day tech landscape is evolving and fluently speaking tech-lingo.

We love the tenacity and energy she brings to the office each day, and think it’s about time you meet the ray of sunshine that is Priya:

Q + A with Priya Amulraj, our new Talent Advocate, Melbourne.

Tell us, what do you do at affix? 

I work as a Talent Advocate in the Enterprise-Tech team under the capable wing of, Jacqui Roberts. I’m responsible for finding the right person for the right employer and vice-versa.

What impact do you hope to have with affix?

I’m excited to use my technical knowledge and experience, from being a former engineer myself to being a technical recruiter. I want to help job seekers and employers make the best choices. I am a very loveable person and hope to spread the love around and gain some in return as well 🙂

What attracted you to working at affix?

The culture was the main reason, of course, then the services, and the company mission and vision. I also want to be a part of the family-like work culture, and that is what affix offers along with great people!

What are you seeing in the recruitment world in 2022? 

2022 is all about the flexible workplace – a few days in the office and few days working at home. After proving this model works well over the past two years, there’s no reason to go backwards.

One challenge we are seeing is that in some areas of recruitment, demand is there but supply is limited. That’s where we come in to help find the right person with the right skills for the right salary.

What trends are you personally loving right now? 

Remote working and fitness & healthy mindful eating.

If you had to deliver a TED talk tomorrow, what would it be about? 

The importance of good nutrition and healthy eating!

What’s your superpower? 

Being direct and honest.

What’s the most useful thing you own?

“Beautiful smile and a beautiful heart.”

What are you listening to, reading, and/or watching right now? 

After the arrival of my baby girl, I am mostly into parenting tips and healthy eating from social media/ books. 

Ok last one… time for ‘would you rather’!

  • Would you rather be able to breathe underwater or fly through the air?
    • Fly through the air. I’m a bit scared of being underwater!
  •  Would you rather have nosy neighbours or noisy neighbours?
    • Nosy is better than noisey! I need a calm environment to remain sane. 
  • Would you rather have telekinesis (the ability to move things with your mind) or telepathy (the ability to read minds)?
    • Telekinesis for sure. Imagine never having to do the dishes after dinner again!
