Q. Brief overview of how you achieved the hustler award
It was through my involvement in a criss functional project team I was lucky enough to be awarded a Swisse Hustle award. This project team were responsible for ensuring Swisse was part of the launch of an exciting new channel and opportunity overseas. We were up against extremely tight timings and a lot of unknowns. What we first thought was near impossible due to numerous factors, working collaboratively ensured we pulled this off as one big team!
Q. Brief overview of your career to date (including pre-H&H)
I first began my professional working career at Pressed Juices HQ within the Marketing team. Being a start-up at the time, my role day-to-day was extremely varied and exposed me to the broader workings of a business. With a genuine passion for health and wellbeing, when a role opened up at Swisse Wellness, despite being a slight side-step into "Office Coordinator" I couldn't resist. I have been lucky enough to have had numerous roles and opportunities within Swisse, including a year abroad in our London based office. In recent months, I have transitioned into a very new and different area of the business, now sitting within Supply Chain in the Continuous Improvement team.
Q. In your view, how does H&H support career development
Swisse is extremely supportive of career development and ensuring no one is siloed into roles or teams. I have been fortunate enough to have had some amazing managers and leaders who have helped guide and push me towards new roles and opportunities. My most recent transition into the Supply Chain team was prompted by my then manager at the time. It was during our weekly WIPs where work was rarely discussed, instead more focussed on my both personal and professional growth and development and where I saw my strengths to lie. To this date, we still have our monthly catch ups in which I really value.
Q. What makes you proud to be part of the H&H one big team?
Working in such a positive and uplifting environment which really values the importance of our health and wellbeing. We're exceptionally spoilt at H&H with weekly lunches, meditation and regular boxing and yoga classes. I work with such an incredibly talented team, many of whom I now call close friends.
