Conrad Hudghton - Sage Institute of Child Care

Critical to the success of our wonderful Sage education programs, and helping you to achieve your career dreams, are the Sage Career Agents! Career Agents guide the students through their training and help each student with their personal career goals.

When they are not hands on with the students, Career Agents are out and about around Victoria, developing and maintaining industry partnerships.  These partnerships give Sage students access to great places to undertake their practical placements and update our Career websites with the latest jobs. In addition to this, your Career Agent also organises career and recruitment events so that the students can meet and greet relevant industry partners.

Phew, that sure makes your Career Agent a busy individual!  But such an important one for you to get to know…

Let’s start with a finding out a little bit about Conrad Hudghton, Career Agent, Sage Institute of Child Care.  Conrad responded to the questions below.

Tell us about your background
I moved to Melbourne two years ago from Brisbane for a bit of a change and more opportunity. So far so good!

What made you become a Career Agent?
I worked as a career advisor for Sage Fitness and Sage Childcare since November 2014. The Career Agent opportunity arose, and as I’m about to finish my Master of Business degree this year, I thought it was the logical step for me to move into this large growth area for Sage Institute of Child Care.

Do you have any tips about the industry?
My main tip for the child care industry would be to make sure you are Diploma qualified! With so many jobs available it’s one hundred percent the way to go in order for long term job stability within the industry.

What are your hobbies?
I love most sports, particularly AFL, which was another big reason that I moved to Melbourne. I’m not one for material possessions, so travelling with my mates is what I would rather spend my money on.

What’s your favourite food?
Chicken burritos – all day.

If you are given a chance to travel into the past where would you go and why?
I would head back 200 million years so I could hang out with dinosaurs.
