Senior Data Analytics Recruiter
Leisha spent seven years in Business Development in financial services before making the move to Australia in 2013. After joining Precision with no recruitment experience, she quickly found her niche and chose to join the Analytics team, which has seen massive growth across the whole market. As a recruiter, Leisha’s success has come from her ability to get to know her candidates inside out so that she fully understands what makes them tick from a career perspective.
She spends her spare time enjoying Sydney’s beaches and markets and also likes to escape the city on weekends; usually to the country where there is not a tall building in sight and she can ride horses in open spaces.
What makes you unique in your field?
I think it’s that I find my market interesting and share a passion for data with my clients and candidates. While I’m not technical, I have a deep understanding of the day-to-day job and I enjoy solving problems, just like they do. That means I can kill two birds with one stone by solving my clients’ hiring problems whilst also finding my candidates their dream role.
Why do talented people trust you as a recruiter?
I think it’s because I’m honest and I give every candidate the time they deserve.
What is your greatest achievement?
Surviving my farm work in Australia was a big achievement! Realistically, though, I don’t think I’ve achieved my biggest achievement just yet, it’s still in the making.
What would your friends say about you?
I just asked one and she said ‘passionate, driven, feisty and loyal to the death’…and I thought she would just say ‘you’re a terrible cook’!
Who would you invite to a dinner party?
Rebel Wilson and the cast of Game of Thrones.

“I can safely say that my experience of working with Leisha has been one of the best to date for recruitment. She really takes the time to build a relationship with you, understand your requirements and work to a solution that is not only right for their client but for their candidate. She demonstrated amazing negotiating skills and succeeded in getting the outcome we both hoped for.”

I decided to brief her on the roles we were trying to fill, just to see what Leisha could provide. Due to unfortunate timing, we filled the role the very next day.
Leisha stood out with her knowledge of the industry along with likeable personality versus all the recruiters (second-hand car salesmen type) I had been dealing with.
I will keep her contact details on file to help fill any future roles I will have”
