Meet some of our amazing employees and Bell Ringers.
I’d just graduated from uni and was looking to jump into something new, challenging, exciting – and a little bit out of the box! I’d never heard of conference producing as a job before and it sounded like the perfect job for someone who loves exploring current issues and bringing people together.
I had been working in Australia for about 2 years and had gained good exposure to local employment legislation and practices. My background from a HR perspective has predominantly been in working within small owner managed entrepreneurial businesses and I was looking to move back in to this type of organisation in a stand alone role. I was really excited by a number of things at my interview. Firstly, that it was a greenfield role where I’d get the opportunity to develop and shape the HR function and our HR processes and practices. Secondly that the Senior Leaders within the business were so bought into the value of HR and ensuring that their talent management processes were engaging, innovative and market leading.
Senior Marketing Manager
I joined Criterion as its culture and values got my attention and it seemed to be a company where I would fit in – our wonderfully weird value is my favourite! Also because I was looking to go back to working in marketing after a few years in the education industry.
Delegate Sales Manager
I joined Criterion as I was influenced by Joal to try and get a job here, probably so he could get a referral bonus!
I joined Criterion for a new challenge and a step up in my career.

Content & Social Media Marketer
I joined Criterion shortly after moving to Australia earlier this year. I had never worked in events before and the buzz of being involved in 90 conferences a year across such a diverse range of topics and industries really appealed to me. I also heard great things about the company culture and the people I would be working with.

Enquiries Sales Associate
Why did I join Criterion? Word of mouth really. I had ex-colleagues who worked at Criterion and I always heard great things about the company. When I decided to move, Criterion was a clear winner.
I joined Criterion because I saw a great opportunity to work for an organisation that provided opportunity for growth.
I joined Criterion because I had a research and events background and loved how Criterion aligned both of these elements to create evidenced, interactive and creative conferences. Plus in my interview I could tell I would get on well with the team as we had a few giggles.
I joined criterion a year ago to pursue a change in career direction – in sales. I was tired of working in my previous role and wanted to take on a new challenge where my earning potential was in my own hands.
