Learn a little about the Monk Mantra
Neil is an experienced Business to Business Sales professional with over 11 years Recruitment experience within the Microsoft Dynamics AX, NAV, and CRM space, based from London, UK and Melbourne, Australia.
With almost 5 years of experience within Microsoft Dynamics under his belt, Neil made the great escape from London to Melbourne with wife in tow to continue in the same space, he very quickly learned the subtle but different way in which business is performed down under and in turn has built long term relationships at all levels within the Dynamics 365 Community… choosing a footy team (GO CATS!!) definitely helped!!
“I’d like to think I’m seen as more than a recruiter. In such a candidate short market, it’s important to understand your product and market to offer honest career advice and valued insight on market trends, this helps if you are passionate about what you do and after 10 years working in this space I’m still as excited as when I started and still learning”.
When he’s not engaged with the best Dynamics 365 talent in the market, Neil likes to play football and thinks he still has a chance of playing in the EPL, some would say he plays like Shaun Derry in his prime.
Craig has 20 years of sales and commercial experience within the IT industry, building his career in the UK working at leading IT vendors, distributors and re-sellers before making the move to Australia in 2011 and taking his transferable skillset into the IT Recruitment space.
For the past 5 years he has been dedicated to the Microsoft Dynamics market across Australia and New Zealand continuing to build and support the Dynamics eco-system across the region. Anybody that has dealings with Craig knows he provides an honest, transparent and straight forward approach to the recruitment process, with the aim of building long term valued relationships.
“For me I am very passionate about this market, I have seen the platform come a long way in the last few years and truly believe now is a very exciting time to be involved with Microsoft Dynamics. For us, our aim and goal is simple, to continue to support the deployment and growth of the Microsoft Dynamics 365 portfolio by providing skilled professionals to projects in need”.
When he’s not engaged with the best Dynamics 365 talent in the market, Craig can usually be found trying to improve his golf on the weekends, which certainly needs a lot more work!
Our Story & Values
We set up Digital Monk International because we wanted to offer something different in this market that we both have a great deal of passion for. Having both started our journeys in the Microsoft Dynamics market here in Australia 5 years ago we became good friends and always spoke about our aspirations to set up our own recruitment business and we are grateful that this fantastic market has allowed us to achieve that.
For us, our goal in setting up Digital Monk International is to continue to support the growth of the Microsoft Dynamics Eco-System across Australia and New Zealand and ultimately see projects being delivered successfully. Too often in this highly competitive recruitment industry people are focused on the short-term, quick wins, whether it’s the right fit or not. For us, seeing ourselves as an integral part of this market we are here to add value, insight and expertise to both clients and candidates, with the aim of building long-term trusted partnerships.
We are both excited to see what’s in store for the future of Dynamics 365 and looking forward to our journey ahead. If you are a candidate that is looking for that next career opportunity and wants an in-depth understanding and impartial view of the market or an organisation looking to partner with a flexible, transparent and trusted agency we would love to hear from you.
