Helen Skinner

Executive Assistant/Building & Facilities Coordinator

I have always been a people person and enjoy working alongside people and teams. I love that I have a degree of control and freedom within my role and also have the variety with the satisfaction that I support others. No two days are the same. ANZCO is a great place to work, with a positive working environment where I feel valued.

I started with ANZCO in 2014 as a Receptionist/PA, in 2015 I became an Executive Assistant taking on an additional role as the Building and Facilities Coordinator in 2019.

My role as Executive Assistant involves providing administration support to two members of the Executive Leadership Team (GM People & Capability and the CFO) and also work closely with their teams.  The Building & Facilities Coordinator part of my role at Corporate Office deals with outside contractors, problem solving maintenance issues and implementing new and improved facilities to achieve a positive outcome.

During my time with ANZCO I have been given opportunities to work alongside a number of people who have taken an interest in my development and have been able to learn new skills in their areas of expertise.  I have attended a range of training courses and participated in projects including our new building. It has been pleasing to see the increased collaboration as a result of the open plan design and great shared facilities, and knowing I was involved in this. I like hard work and have perseverance; I have always had the desire to succeed in my work life.
