Leadership Team

Victoria Stableforth

Introduction

Victoria likes to belt out a song in the car and shower like the rest of us, the difference is, she can actually hit those notes with Mariah-esque perfection. And while you won’t see her hitting the stage solo anytime soon, adding her vocals to her Sydney choir meet-up is the highlight of her week. She also tells us that one of her favourite ways to clear the lungs and free her mind is to let loose in with a Sydney Flash Mob choir from time to time. She loves what can be produced with a group of different voices come together. Perhaps that’s why she’s chosen a career in HR, where she uses her leadership skills to ensure that the talents of individuals can cohesively come together and work collaboratively towards achieving business goals.

Victoria has in-depth HR leadership experience, delivering on the talent strategy, optimising talent supply chain, developing and coaching our leaders and ensuring our talent meets current and future business needs. She has been instrumental in the management of a diverse range of projects, including the development of geographic talent strategies aligned to business growth areas and organisational learning and design activities, implementation of new organisational structures, recruitment process reengineering and “outsourcing”, integration program improvement and resource optimisation. Victoria knows that performing well professionally means having balance outside of work. For her, this means spending time with her children, transporting them to sporting activities, bushwalking, cycling, baking, and finally learning to play that ukulele that’s been sitting on the shelf.
