I love that the organisation I work for supports doctors and clients to improve the health and welfare of people in our communities across Australia and New Zealand.

Helen Spanos

Operations Manager


Helen is a highly experienced and dedicated Quality Risk and Operations Manager.


With over 18 years of working in the staffing and recruiting industry, Helen thrives on supporting a positive quality improvement culture underpinned by a quality and risk management framework. Her management of activities associated with risk, compliance, procedures, standards, determining in-house quality procedures and assessing customer requirements is second to none in the recruitment industry.

Helen is adept at identifying and addressing quality processes of risk management in addition to work health & safety issue, legislative compliance and embedding accreditation-ready approaches across the business.

Helen never shies away from a challenge and enjoys working with all members of the Ochre Recruitment Team. In her spare time, she can be found spending time with her family and friends or reading a good book. Her latest non-fiction read, “going under” by Sonia Henry, a doctor and writer who lives in Sydney, gives a rare insight into the reality of being a doctor.

Fun Facts

Lake McKenzie on Fraser Island QLD holds wonderful memories for Helen. The huge freshwater lake is clear and set against natural beauty and is the perfect spot for swimming... making for an unforgettable experience; 

Zakynthos, Melissani Lake and Skopelos Island.... yes all beautiful islands in Greece and where parts of Mamma Mia! were filmed, are all on Helens bucket list... which she hopes to tick off during her trip home in 2024;

Crispy Chicken Parmigiana is one of Helens favourite dishes to order when eating out. At home she can't go past her specialty,  Moussaka... a Greek disk with layers of eggplant, potatoes and lamb topped with a creamy parmesan béchamel sauce... YUM;

Helen listens to a wide variety of music at home and enjoys seeing live bands. Having grown up on Rock and Blues, anything by the Rolling Stones. Pink Floyd, INXS, Van Morrison and Fleetwood Mac will get Helen grooving.
