Melina Iuculano

Associate Director

I value the trust clients and candidates place in me.

After completing a Bachelor of Arts at Griffith University Brisbane and University of Queensland and post-grad studies in Marketing & Psychology, I started my career in FMCG sales and marketing. I worked with Blue Chip companies such as Unilever and Cerebos, starting out in my home state of Queensland before relocating to Melbourne and then Sydney. This background and knowledge of FMCG along with my genuine interest in people makes Carrera a natural fit for me and all these years later I still get a buzz from matching the right candidates with my client’s roles.

I joined Carrera in 2003, the first employee to join the business after its launch. Since then I have seen the business grow and evolve significantly over that time. What hasn’t changed though is our unwavering commitment to delivering the best possible outcomes for both our clients and candidates. This commitment and focus on relationships means many of my original clients are still working with us now and many more have gone on to become good friends.

Now, as Associate Director I am excited to be working with Michael and Neal to shape the future direction of Carrera. Key to my role is consulting to my clients and keeping them informed of trends in the candidate market. I also work closely in a coaching and mentoring role with candidates to understand short-term and long-term career goals.

Outside of work and family my other great passion is yoga. With a Diploma in Yoga Teaching, I spend any free time I have both practicing and teaching which helps me to keep my very busy life in balance – most of the time!

I believe that our professional lives closely affect our personal lives and each decision we make about our career can have enormous impact on all areas of our life for the short and long term. I value the trust clients and candidates place in me and feel privileged to be able to help guide and counsel them through these decisions at critical turning points in their lives.
