Abby Van Rooyen

Principal SAP Recruiter

Abby joined Precision Sourcing in January 2009 as a young, bright eyed and bushy tailed junior recruiter and now, 8 years later, she has just returned to work after having a gorgeous baby boy. After spending 7 years recruiting in the Software Development world, Abby saw this return as a chance to embrace a new challenge and therefore, has joined the SAP team. Teaming years of recruitment expertise with the solid SAP brand is an exciting move for Abby and Precision Sourcing.

Abby is a real people person who spends her weekends with her family and usually checking out a new beach or national park.

What makes you unique in your field?

In my daily life, I am known as the organiser (see my greatest achievement below), and I think that this translates well to recruitment. There are so many facets to our job, and I think that being so organised allows me to get a lot done in one day, and as any recruiter will tell you, there is never enough time to get everything done.

Why do talented people trust you as a recruiter?

I don’t feed them stories that will boost their ego. I am quite straight up and prefer, to be honest.

What is your greatest achievement?

In hindsight, moving to the other side of the world at the age of 21 by myself was a massive achievement, but at the time, I was just full of excitement. Another would be that I organised and hosted a Black Tie fundraiser at the Vibe Hotel in North Sydney. I single handily raised 15k for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. I managed to get companies including BridgeClimb, Zilzie Wines and Fossil to donate and that was pretty exciting… it was even in the local paper!

What would your friends say about you?

These type of questions always make you self-analyse as you think more about what you would like your friends to say about it…however, I asked a few, and there seemed to be a trend around these three words:
Organised, Supportive, Kind

I’ll take that ☺

Who would you invite to a dinner party?

My grandparents - they rock!
