While both Public Sector People and Design & Build are recruitment agencies, we depend on our hardworking support team to help us work as efficiently as possible. Our finance, marketing and administration staff are dedicated to helping our consultants and our company work to the best of their ability. However, a particular standout this year, was Lyndel Nothrop who took out the Support Star award at our annual EOFY awards for all her efforts in helping with the team's financial administration.
The Support Star award is voted on by staff for a person who they think deserves recognition for the way they have been able to support their colleagues and the company.
“Lyndel joined the business at the beginning of a challenging time with new systems to learn and COVID-19 to deal with but despite this, her approachability and professionalism have been first class. Lyndel’s determination to get great outcomes for the people around her has been a great addition to our business” - Tom Dumper, Managing Director of Public Sector People
We caught up with Lyndel to find out a little bit more about her and what this achievment means:
What motivates you?
I would say seeing change/progression really motivates me in my role. Whether it be learning and developing knowledge or building relationships! Within my role it’s motivating to see progress with our accounts and systems! It always great to see those around you grow in all aspects of life, either personal or professional. It’s motivating to see others do well, and to see progression in yourself too!
What does career success look like to you?
Career success to me looks like a healthy work/life balance, being happy to get to work! Enjoying the tasks within your career and the people you are surrounded by. Being around a great team/company is so important.
What does winning this award mean to you?
Having only been at Design & Build and Public Sector People since February, to me this award means I could be taking my role in the right direction and making the most of it. It makes me feel valued as part of the team and that hard work does not go unnoticed within the company, which I absolutely love!
What has been a highlight for the last financial year and what are your goals heading into next year?
Given I was only in the office for about 4-5 weeks before we started working from home, I would say a big highlight would have been the February staff activity where we all went indoor rock climbing! It was so much fun and was great to get to know people! My goals heading into the next year is to learn more in my role so I can be of more assistance to the team! Personally, a goal of mine is to work towards getting some qualifications on the side as well!
