How would you describe your work day?
I leave my house at 7:15am and walk to work and back every day. I have a shower at work, get changed and I’m at my desk by 8:30am. I blitz through my work until lunch time and then do some exercise with a colleague. Afterwards we grab a quick bite to eat and head back to work until 5pm when I get changed and make my way back home on foot.
What are the main activities in your working day?
No two days are the same which I really enjoy. I’m on my feet running around a lot. I carry out many of the obvious office tasks such as faxes, post runs, ordering office supplies and so on. But I work on a lot of projects behind the scenes. I get to mix with people across the business and work with pretty much every team on different things. I also have lots of fun working with my colleague and office administrator Caitlyn, creating themed drinks on Fridays, office activities, charity and work lunches and our various amazing annual staff parties.
How important is teamwork to you?
It’s essential for me. Caitlyn and I work directly together so it’s very important that we get along and work well together which we do. But given we work with people across the business, it’s important to have good relationships and have the ability to work fluidly with everyone.
What do you enjoy most about working at Wavelength?
I love my role at Wavelength and the way it’s always pulling me in different directions. The opportunity to learn is always present and working with so many different people all the time influences and encourages that too. Casual dress is another big plus for me as I move around a lot, I get changed a few times a day and I need to be comfortable. But above all, it has to be the people. I initially started as a backpacker and from day one was welcomed into the Wavie family. I have made some of my strongest friendships to date.
