Lauren Wilson

Senior Recruitment Executive

Lauren Wilson is an HR Professional whose career first started 10 years ago as a Recruitment consultant for a Global, multidisciplinary agency. Having her aptitude for people management recognised, Lauren quickly moved her way in to a Management position where she led and motivated a large team of Business Support specialists across a range of industries, including Government, Tertiary, Engineering, Mining, Legal, Finance, Consulting, Construction and FMCG – to name just a few.

With a desire to develop her career beyond recruitment, Lauren embarked on her HR Journey in Local Government. Here she managed a large client portfolio across a number of directorates. This experience provided her with the knowledge and skills to assist with the full candidate and client life cycle. From candidate target, sourcing and selection all the way through to on-boarding, retention strategies, rewards and recognition programs, to performance management and industrial relations. 

After moving away from the city down to the beautiful coastal town of Torquay, Lauren wanted her passion for supporting local businesses, to also apply to her career. With S3 having strong ties to many businesses synonymous with the Surfcoast, the decision to join the team as our Senior Recruitment Consultant was an easy one.
