Another financial year has passed and Reach4 has had a cracker! The 2018/2019 financial year has seen huge growth of the business with 4 new employees in just the last year alone. It was a quiet Reach4 office when Melissa was working alone (with some help from an amazing board of directors of course), but with the addition of Hannah, Hope, Kirralee and Sam – it has fast become a vibrant, joyful place to work in the heart of Brisbane City.
We asked the Reach4 team to tell us what they loved about coming to work each day, here’s what they said:
Hannah: “I have loved every second of my time at Reach4! I am grateful to Melissa for securing my employment and I haven’t looked back since the day I first set foot into this office. Melissa has been supportive, motivating and kind – and I have tried to mimic this attitude when I speak to my candidates and clients. I have to say that the best part of my role at Reach4 is the feeling I get when a candidate gets their dream job! In todays busy world, my skills really help them to cut through the jobs they don’t want and find the ones that are realistic and suit their wants and needs. It’s a great feeling knowing they have new opportunities to develop and grow because of me.”
Hope: “It’s been a rollercoaster at Reach4 in terms of the tasks I have been assigned. Sometimes the team calls me the “Tec Whiz” because although my initial role with Reach4 was administration assistant, my role came closer to IT specialist! As my role developed into Marketing Manager (which included a great promotion for me!) I really began to settle into the team. I am given the freedom to try new things in the marketing space and I’ve certainly had fun doing it. My all-time favourite moment was when the “Reach4 News” video came together – what a laugh!”
Lilly: “When I came to Reach4 I knew very little about the mining industry, with a history of sales I was thrown in the deep end and have grown to love the industry. My role isn’t for everyone, heck call me strange – I love talking to people all day! It drives me to achieve and find roles for some awesome people. I am keen to arrive at work every day and wouldn’t be anywhere else. I think Hannah’s infectious laugh has been the best part of my time at Reach4.”
Sam: “As the newest team member, I was a little nervous coming to Reach4, but my nerves settled immediately. Reach4 has an amazing bunch of ladies who are warm and welcoming. I am still learning, and no doubt there will always be something to learn from my team – yet I never feel disheartened because I know my team will support me through thick and thin. My favourite moment is also my most embarrassing moment at Reach4 – when we made a rap video. I’ve never laughed so hard but seeing yourself trying to rap on camera, well, it’s not a good look.”
Melissa: “Wow what a year! We have come so far in such a short time. I’m so proud of my team and the way we all pull together to make great things happen. Hannah and Lilly have had some late nights chasing down leads and following up with candidates and they never complain. Hope, well what can I say? I don’t know how she comes up with some of her video ideas, but they sure do grab attention, not to mention make me laugh. Sam kicked things up a notch again when she joined the team, she’s already cemented her place here with us and I am not so quietly optimistic about the future of Reach4. If this year has been anything to go on – we have only just scratched the surface! The best part of my year has been seeing my team achieve their goals, but I would be lying if I didn’t say that my promotion to General Manager has also been a highlight. My time at Reach4 makes me proud to say the least.”
