Virginia Bacon

After completing a Degree in Education, Virginia pursued a career in retail having already established a passion for the industry working part time in retail for five years whilst studying. Virginia spent the next six years in management roles, working with a large speciality fashion womenswear business and later as National Sales Manager for an International retail business.

Virginia then decided on a career change and joined a well known established National Executive Recruitment firm where she had experience in being both a candidate and client. Virginia spent over ten years with this organisation, commencing as a Consultant and progressing though a number of management roles to her last position as Regional General Manager overseeing three States.

She oversaw a large team covering both permanent and contracting recruitment across Retail, FMCG, Banking, Finance, Engineering, Manufacturing, Professional Services, Healthcare and Government.

Virginia was then approached to open and establish the Melbourne office of a Sydney based Executive Search Firm. As the General Manager of the Melbourne business, Virginia grew and established an unknown brand in the Melbourne market. Hiring specialist Consultants across the Consumer, Banking, Finance and IT&T sectors, Virginia was also an active Executive Recruitment Practioner and managed senior appointments.

Having spent over fifteen years in the industry as a Senior Search/Executive Recruiter and Senior Manager of two businesses, Virginia decided it was time to establish her own Recruitment firm and build a practice founded on her strong beliefs and philosophies on what a recruitment service business should offer.

Virginia is passionate about the recruitment industry and has been actively involved in the RCSA for over seven years sitting on both the Professional Development Committee and the Victorian/Tasmanian Council where she was the Vice President for over four years.

Virginia has an unwavering commitment to setting high standards for the industry and brings energy, drive and professionalism in what she does. Virginia prides herself on her personalised and accessible approach.
