What I love most about working for Peninsula Personnel

The People, all the people, from the ones I work with in the office daily who make everyday a pleasure to come to work, to the Clients I am able to help by finding them fabulous temps they can rely on and request back or, by finding them amazing perm staff who end up staying with them for years. Then of course there are the people who are actively looking for work who come to us seeking advice and help. The best bit of all is I get to help these people and play a small part in their future happiness.

Favourite Book

  • Angry Housewives eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvick, a funny book about deep & lifelong friendships
  • April Fools Day by Bryce Courtney, tragically moving and honest
  • Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi, enlightening, affecting and brave
  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, unforgettable, powerful

Favourite Movie

This too is a hard one, I read a lot more than I see movies but if I had to narrow it down:

  • The Snapper – for a fabulously funny movie
  • The Sum of Us – I love all Australian movies
  • The Notebook – for its wonderful romance
  • The Usual Suspects – because you wondered what you missed the first time.

Biggest moment in life

As one gets older there are so many moments in life that make us who we are today. Experiencing the loss of someone close or something dear to us, to marriage, the birth and then growth of our children. The starting up of a business, sickness, building a house to learning from ones mistakes and these are maybe some of our biggest moments or turning points. So for me maybe one of my biggest moments in life was losing everything at the age of 16, a very selfish age to realise that infact I had lost nothing at all. What is most dear to us is life, love, family and friends, everything else is replaceable or not important at all.
