Introducing Jay Ryan-Zeman, Director, Technology, Sydney

My Universe is… working with the amazing technology recruitment team here in Sydney across all of our client base. I’m passionate about delivering great talent outcomes with organisations, particularly in the contingent/statement of workspace. I find bringing multiple or flexible engagement options to our clients and having a customer-centric approach breeds strong long-term relationships with our clients. I’ll be working across our client base to deliver those flexible and client-centric solutions with the team! There’s also a couple of pics of my “other” Universe — Toby and Bailey. 😊

You have your own late night talk show, who do you invite as your first guest? Elon Musk. We all know it would be a car crash (depending on his mood) and I want to ask for a free ride on SpaceX when they start taking private clients into space!

What was your least favourite food as a child? Do you still hate it or do you love it now? Brussel sprouts…I physically vomited when forced to eat them. Much the same reaction as an adult too!

What sport would you compete in if you were in the Olympics? Probably football (soccer) as the only way I’d get to the Olympics is if I was carried by 10 other players much better than I.

The best advice I’ve ever been given was… Talk and you’re repeating what you already know. Listen and you could be learning something new.

Fun fact about me… I can cluck like a chicken “very” well. I once got asked to go on the Sydney breakfast radio show with my chicken clucking and won an “unusual skills” competition (it translated really well on radio). I won a boat cruise with French Montana (one-hit wonder) on Sydney Harbour!
