Do Something Great with Your Career White Neon Sign

Our team of expert marketing and advertising consultants have both industry and recruitment experience. needless to say, they know how to help candidates navigate their careers.

At Stopgap, we believe your next job is an important part of your career progression, values and overall life. Whether you're at the beginning, end or middle of your career, it's always helpful to hear advice from a third party.

Below I've put together Team Stopgap's best career advice.

Hilary Williams

"I can't remember who told me but a foot in the door can open up lots of different opportunities! Which is so true, however you need to make sure it's the right door for you! Don't be afraid to ask questions in your interviews, you're interviewing them as much as they are interviewing you!"

Hilary manages client-side permanent & freelance roles across a number of sectors including not-for-profit, education, retail and membership organisations. Before moving to Australia, she worked in B2B marketing in London for various Studios including Disney, Sony Pictures and Warner Bros. International Television.

Larisa Todd

"Before I chose advertising / marketing as a career, I was interested in the tourism sector. My first employer, an ex Senior Executive at Qantas, recommended I study marketing not tourism, as it was too niche. I've had no regrets!"

Larisa has been recruiting at Stopgap for 10+ years from our London and Sydney office. She recruits for agency roles and brings a wealth of experience in agency account management for global and boutique brands and agencies.

Laura Brisdion

"It's a simple one but always take a step back to think, never rush a big decision and always follow your gut!"

Laura worked as a Marketing Executive for a number of B2B businesses running successful campaigns and high profile events before joining Stopgap in 2022.

I hope our Team's wisdom helps you do something great, whatever that means to you. In the meantime, enjoy the journey.
