We recently welcomed Karen to our Operations Team. As Speller continues to grows, Karen is a welcome addition to the Payroll and Accounts team. Read below to find out more about Karen's role and goals for 22/23.
What is your role at Speller? What does an average day involve?
My role is Accounts and Payroll Support, I will be assisting Amanda with all aspects of payroll/accounts - onboarding, timesheets, invoices and payroll queries.
Tell us a bit about your professional background.
My previous employment was in Aged and Disability services, where I worked as a support coordinator for about 7 years, dealing with planning, implementing and management of care plans for clients, management and rostering for staff.
What are you enjoying about your role at Speller?
I am really enjoying challenging myself again, there is so much to learn! I am also looking forward to getting to know everyone and becoming a part of the Speller team.
Where do we find you in your downtime?
I am married with three children, 2 young adults and a primary school aged girl, they all keep me super busy outside of work hours. When I do get time to myself, I love to read, trying new restaurants / bars or spending time with my friends.
What's your favourite part of Australia?
I have always loved Deniliquin – which is just over the NSW border in the Riverina region. I grew up in the area and I love the quiet town and the beautiful river.
What does 2022 hold both professionally and personally for you?
Professionally I am really looking forward working with the Speller team and developing and expanding my skills and experience.
From a Personal standpoint, since we have been in lock down for COVID for the best part of the last two years, I have a list a mile long of places we want to visit for long weekends over the summer. I am also looking forward to spending time with my friends and family and making new memories.
