Supervisor Lamb Further Processing

The things I enjoy most about my role are the daily challenges, no two days are ever the same, and the people I work with and get to meet.

I started working for ANZCO in 2003 in the further lamb processing area. In 2010 I moved into a team leader and trainer role in packing, then advanced to the quality assurance team in 2014. In 2017 I was appointed to my current role - supervisor in lamb further processing looking after a team of 35.

As I’ve moved through different roles in the organisations I’ve developed my skills that have enabled me to grow and establish my career.  The people I’ve worked with have made the biggest impact through training and support and giving me the confidence to do my job.

In my current role I work closely with the slaughterboard team to ensure that the products we provide are to the highest standard.  It’s also really great working with a range of people in different areas of the industry, including Ministry for Primary Industries, technical people and auditors to ensure that our procedures and processes are compliant.

The most significant changes I’ve seen in my 16 years with ANZCO are major improvements in health and safety.

I’m passionate to succeed and I strive to do, and be, my best. I aim to have a positive go forward attitude in everything I do.
