Emily Schilg

// Recruitment Consultant //


I was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, which may sound a little boring given the many exciting people from around the world I have the privilege to work with. Victoria will always be home for me.

After completing a dual Bachelor of Marketing and Visual Arts at Monash University, I spent the next 12 years working in marketing, HR and recruitment roles within the technology space in Melbourne. I believe the problem solving, project management and creativity skills I developed through my arts practice are a point of difference in my approach to working with my clients. What attracted me to recruitment was the opportunity to work on complex business problems with leaders to develop strategies involving talent, a core component to any project achieving success.

My current role at Marshall McAdam is an exciting one! Since joining the team, I have utilised my vast experience in specialist technology recruitment, particularly within the areas of data engineering, business intelligence and data science.

What initially attracted me to Marshall McAdam was the vision of the directors to develop new leadership solutions, with the goal of leading the recruitment industry in a direction that reflects the rapidly changing ways of working we are faced with. The team’s ability to develop authentic long-term relationships with both their clients and candidates alike was something that resonated strongly with my own personal values. I look forward to developing many more meaningful relationships while on my journey with Marshall McAdam.

Outside of my work, I’m one part art geek, two parts devoted dog parent, and one part musical theatre nerd. I rarely go a day without mentioning my 35kg groodle Jasper and my 45kg black Russian terrier Maera to a colleague or client. At any moment in time you will find at least one painting, sewing or DIY project I have in progress, with another two or three ideas bouncing around my head! On Monday nights and weekends during competition time, you will also find me living out my musical dance dreams as part of the Janelle Calisthenics Masters team.

Since you made it to the end of my bio, I would love to have a chat if anything I had to say made you curious. I look forward to an exciting new chapter with you!
