Mauricio only recently moved to Australia, he originally hails from Mexico and found his new opportunity on the Movemeon platform. Our team in APAC connected him with our client Axlewood Analytics where he started his new role as a Senior Strategy Consultant as part of the sustainability practice.
It’s a great example of where Movemeon helped an overseas candidate to get their foot in the door in the Australian market.
Please tell us a little about your career so far. How did you find the move to Australia and finding a new role here? Any advice for other overseas candidates looking to make the move?
I’ve been in the strategy and consulting business for around 8 years now and I was always looking for a chance to move my career to Australia. In the beginning, looking for this change was a huge task but honestly, Movemeon helped me to tackle that fairly easy and I always had a reliable contact person throughout the entire process.
As for advice, I think what helped me was getting in touch with the Movemeon team, as good connections, expertise and professionalism are very helpful.

In your opinion, how does Movemeon differ from other platforms/ agencies/ channels?
