  • Written by Riley Duke


FlexCareers, the leading Australian technology platform and consulting business for progressive employers, has recently announced the appointment of
Michael Tan to the position of Head of Growth and Marketing.

 

Michael brings over 15 years of professional experience to the FlexCareers team, having worked across a diverse range of traditional and digital marketing leadership roles.

 

As one of the earliest team members, and formerly the Head of Marketing at Expert360, Michael supported the business through a period of significant expansion. During his time at the company the online marketplace grew from 4500 consultants to over 19,000 consultants.


Michael specialises in designing and leading growth strategies to rapidly scale startups, a role he has performed across a diverse portfolio of companies, notably ZYB, the Danish mobile community which was sold to Vodafone in 2008.


CEO of FlexCareers, Natalie Goldman, said she was delighted to have Michael join the team:


“We are excited to see how Michael will utilise his diverse skill set to drive the expansion of the FlexCareers community. As Head of Growth and Marketing, he will play a crucial role in developing and executing the next phase of development for our company.”


Speaking on his appointment, Michael commented on what drew him to FlexCareers and his ambitions for the role.


“I believe that flexibility, diversity and equality are vitally important to today’s workforce. FlexCareers’ vision to change the world’s ways of working for the better resonated with me, and I was deeply impressed with by the quality of their leadership team and technology platform. It’s a project that speaks to my own personal and professional experiences and something I believe will be central to the future of work.”
