To access Dominic (多米) Gray's full profile
Allow me to introduce myself...
My name is Dominic and I am l currently actively searching for a position in the area of procurement. I supported myself through my Masters degree through casual warehouse and logistics work and am still working for the same agency while I search for a position.
Among my passions are Asia and Asian studies (including languages), procurement and sustainability and law. Supply chain and procurement have presented me with a new way of looking at how businesses work.
I recently graduated from a Masters of Strategic Procurement at RMIT University. I am also a graduate from Arts/Law at Melbourne University, did my legal training at Leo Cussen Institute and am admitted as a solicitor. I can speak Indonesian (bahasa) and Chinese (Mandarin) very well. I can speak some limited Korean and Japanese too. I can even speak Jakarta dialect (and a few words of Korean dialect).
I have spent more than ten years in Asia working in different roles, lived in Jakarta, Indonesia for around five years, Beijing, China for about three years and spent a couple of years in Busan and Seoul, South Korea. I have been an interpreter, translator, taught English, been a 'deputy manager' and a paralegal. In Asia, I have worked for US, Australian, Indonesian, Chinese and Korean companies. As well as work in the private sector, I have had the experience of teaching English in government departments and to government officials in Indonesia and China, and being an interpreter for G to G training involving AusAID and the Indonesian Supreme Court.
In China, I was on the Beijing Australian Rules Football (BARF) team. In South Korea I did kumdo (like Japanese kendo) and in Indonesia I played badminton and traveled. At RMIT, I joined the tennis club and will stay on as an alumni member.
I will be active and ask questions about procurement on this site. I am relatively new to procurement so I am hoping that it will provide me with knowledge, networking and opportunities to attend events and meet people outside of this site (in real life).
