I have worked for 17 years in the Grocery Retail Business. In that time, I have gained extensive experience in Customer Service, Supervising Staff, Human Resources, Health & Safety in the work place, Stocktaking, Cash Balancing, Banking, Customer Feedback, Payroll and Accounts.

I went on to manage a Family Business for 6 years until it was sold in 2010.  I dealt with Ordering Stock, Stocktaking, Purchasing, Sales, Reps, Customers, Accounts, Licensing Requirements, GST and Entertainment.

I am currently working as a Community Support Worker.  I support and care for the Aged, Sick and Disabled, so that they are able to continue to live in their own homes.  I am currently into my 4th year.

I first started working at 17 years of age. Have only had 4 jobs since then and I am now 46.  I worked my way through from a checkout operator to Service and Admin manager.  On occasion, along with the Grocery Manager, we would have to manage the Store, in the Store Managers absence. I was responsible for 30 odd checkout staff and over saw the different departments.  Responsible for HR issues, H&S requirements and generally anything that was needed. Very proud of myself as I had to start from scratch and through hard work and the support of my family, (which I had two children during this time also), I was able to achieve my goals.  I only left when I could not go any further without having to leave town.

Secondly, the family business t managed, was closed for some time before it was purchased and through determination of the family members,  it was reopened on an oily rag and sold 7 years on for a good price.  Since that sale, I have watched the business go through different hands and slowly decline to where it is no longer the same business.

What does this tell you???

This tells you that, I commit and put everything I have into a job.  It shows my loyalty to my employer and my work.  I have great work and family balance. I pride myself in learning all there is to know about the business,  so that I have the knowledge to better help customers and the business.
