Jamie Finnegan – Judge
Welcome to the Pause Awards show, where we invite past winners and future judges to talk about their journeys, inspirations and lessons learned in their professional careers. And beyond.
In this show, George Hedon, Founder of Pause Fest and Awards, spoke with Jamie Finnegan, Global Head of Talent at Finder and a returning judge for the Pause Awards program.
Jamie joined Finder as the Global Head Of Talent, hiring across the spectrum of talent as the comparison website continues to expand into global markets, including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, Poland, and the Philippines. In his current role, Jamie is responsible for the growth of Finder’s team while also designing and driving business initiatives to further enhance Finder’s unique culture.
As Jamie is all about people and culture, we asked him for his take on building a great company culture.
“I split this into two, company culture and values. They often get mistaken for the same thing and interplay quite heavily. If you relate it to a human, the company values would be the same as human values and the culture shift as the human life shifts through the different stages.”Jamie Finnegan, Global Head of Talent, Finder
Finder has been labelled as having a unique culture, so we have asked Jamie to explain what that means.
“I think it’s about the leadership crew and the way the founders show up each day, the freedom and ability to influence Finder as a business, the whole one-crew thing… No matter what country you are based in, what role you are in, or how long you have been in the business, you have an opportunity to influence and to have an impact. We’re one crew and have one goal to achieve together.”
We spoke about Pause Awards and which categories Jamie prefers the most.
“I’m going to cheat and pick two… I really like the Hammer Award and the Unexpected Twist Award!”
