The Written Reference

The Written Reference (TWR) was born in 2018, an off shoot from The Written Reference blog.

TWR is owned and operated by me, Jennifer Heald; a seasoned recruiter and business owner with a genuine love for this industry. Prior to working in Rec2Rec, my last recruitment role left me feeling stagnant, with no idea where my career was going. Being a generalist recruiter, I loved the dynamic nature of my work, recruiting a PA one day, Sales the next but the lack of a niche is what drove me to make the change. After all, specialisation is the key to a prolific recruitment career.

In 2012, through a mutual friend I met the wonderful directors of Scott Recruitment, who took me under their wings on my first step into the specialised field of Rec2Rec. Ironically, after a number of years these gentlemen yearned for a change themselves and I was lucky enough to inherit The Written Reference blog. From this small seed grew The Written Reference Rec2Rec agency was born. And voila, the rest is history!



So now a bit about me…

A busy (aren’t we all!) Melbourne girl living in the beautiful community of Macedon Ranges. My 2 sassy girls give me the reality check I often need as I juggle being a mum, business owner, recruiter, career advisor, chef, chauffeur, nurse, stylist, psychiatrist. As a fulltime working mum, I understand the importance of finding balance in life, and always make time for a catch up with friends or a well-deserved glass of wine at the end of the day.
