I really need a job please!! I have been trying for over a month now to gain employment with no success!
If you‘re looking for someone who is a bit of a “boring-can’t-be-bothered-I’m-scared-of-hard-work-type-and-I’m-already-looking-at-my-watch” then please delete this message immediately (p.s. I don't actually even own a watch).
When I take on a position – I OWN IT – I AM BOSS!! If you need something done NOW – Ask me & it will be done NOW!
I am old school and firmly believe in a fair day's pay for a fair day's work. I call a spade and spade and would like to work within a business where integrity, honesty and trust are paramount.
One of my key skills is my excellent telephone manner & another would be my passion for superb customer service.
During my years of working I have been a bit of a jack of all trades!! In the late 80’s I had my own medical & surgical supply company working from home around our 3 teenage boys.
Into the 90’s I drove Silver Taxis for Yellow Cabs & then I moved on to Telesales (cold calling) for the original Trading Post and Quest Newspapers.
From 2000 to 2006 is a bit of a mixed mash – drove my man (he lost his license – self employed plumber) and did his bookwork. Drove the taxi on Stradbroke Island for about 12 months at the same time working Saturday & Sunday for Stradbroke Island Tourism at Dunwich. Had a bit of time off with a brush with breast cancer. Also did bookwork for various trades people.
February, 2007 saw me start working for my youngest son’s commercial construction business (Commercial Facades Australia Pty Ltd) and as time passed I became the company Administration Manager (50 to 60 hours each week) – all the staff called me NANA & if something needed to be done NOW – it was Nana they came to – lots of MYOB experience, dealing with head contractors, suppliers, employees and tradesmen, accounts payable, accounts receivable, internet banking – company payroll for up to 100 workers. Sadly this business went into liquidation & we closed the doors on 4.10.13. I do have a detailed job description regarding the above role & am happy to email to you if required.
To follow on from there my oldest son started his own business (Aluminium Facades Australia Pty Ltd - www.afaust.com.au) in metal fabrication at Wacol – I helped him set up the business & worked with and for him running the office & promoting his new company quite effectively until March, 2015. As was always the plan his partner moved into that role in March.
From April until recently I was employed by a residential building company as the Administration Officer. Unfortunately this company lost its QBCC license at the end of September & I find myself looking for a new challenge. I don't seem to be having much luck in the construction industry do I?
Happy to provide references if required.
I am 63 years young with no plans to retire in the next 10 years. I am available for an immediate start.
I would love to hear from you! Please bear in mind - with maturity comes a wealth of work and life experience.
