Nilumi Amarabandu

Senior Consultant

Nilumi has over 8 years of experience working in the IT industry extending across Energy & Utilities, Oil & Gas, Commodity Trading, Market Research and Public sectors in both Australia and the United Kingdom. She holds a Master of Information Technology (Professional Computing) from Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne. It was during her post graduate studies that Nilumi grew a passion towards ERP systems, especially SAP.

She began her career as a Technical Business Analyst in the customer communication management space and later joined IBM as a Junior Consultant in their two-year graduate program. She moved into multiple roles within the organisation starting as an Analyst supporting a $300+ million portfolio of a Fortune 500 LNG company and was later involved in numerous Test Analyst / Lead roles at Verve Energy (now merged with Synergy) and Water Corporation of Western Australia. This strong exposure and her passion towards a career in consultancy, paved her a path into on-premise HR/Payroll delivery space as a Functional Consultant specializing in SAP. While developing a greater understanding of Australian payroll and legislation requirements as a part of her key role, Nilumi also managed to drive other service excellence initiatives for IBM such as completing a fit-for-purpose evaluation for a global Cognitive solution offering and adopting tools to improve the quality and efficiency of BAU service delivery.

To broaden her horizons, Nilumi then moved to the UK and joined a boutique consultancy firm offering SAP SuccessFactors cloud solutions. She was involved in the global rollouts of Employee Central (core HR) to clients such as Engelhart Commodities Trading Partners spread across 18 countries and Euromonitor International with a presence in 15 countries.

Having moved back home to Melbourne, Nilumi joined Pinpoint HRM as a Senior Consultant to help clients meet their HR strategy and needs through SuccessFactors solutions.

In her spare time, Nilumi enjoys cycling, bushwalking, dancing, good coffee and exploring new food venues. She is an avid traveller with a goal to visit 100+ countries before – let’s say 50?
