Meet amazing people
Meet some Reece staff and see what they’re doing.
During his Bachelor of IT at Swinburne University, Matthew Nakhla did placements at IBM and Newcrest Mining and assumed they would be the sorts of roles he would take up when he finished his degree.
“I interviewed for various roles, but at Reece they asked me to work on a case study. They gave us a background business case and we had to come up with a solution to a business problem. I just loved it.”
“In my first year as a graduate starter, I was involved in all sorts of things. I worked in the branch network in plumbing stores, HVAC, irrigation and the Docklands warehouse, then I came into IT.
“Reece invests a lot of time and effort in you. They provide a lot of training and the put the effort in to get the right person in the right place.”
“They had just taken over Actrol and I worked on the integration project doing the transformation of the point of sale system between two technology languages. It was a real problem solving exercise.
I learned a lot about integration, infrastructure and project management. I got to show them who I was, how I could think and my communication skills. It was great.”
In the two years since then Matthew has worked on a number of projects focused on improving the customer experience, including a new customer dashboard. He is now doing the project coordination for a new warehousing management system.
“Reece invests a lot of time and effort in you. They provide a lot of training and the put the effort in to get the right person in the right place. You can fast track. They tell you what you need to do to get to the next level. If you want more responsibility, you just ask for it.”
So is Matthew sorry he didn’t take one of the other jobs he interviewed for?
“It might have been more corporate, but I would have just been a number. Here they trust you. That you’ll do the right thing and you’ll do your best. If you need help, it’s always there. They treat you like family. It makes you want to do your best.”
“I came to Reece sort of by accident. I spoke to a recruiter about another role that had been filled already and she rang me later about a business analyst vacancy at Reece.
So I came into Reece and did what I’ve always done. Once i got into the swing of my role, I started to reach out and see where else I could help.
A year later, to my surprise, my boss called me in and asked if I'd like to setup and project manage a new mobile app team! That’s the thing about Reece. They’re very open to people moving laterally and vertically in the organisation. There are always opportunities.
If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything but working alongside smart, friendly people makes it so much easier.
So now I've been working in the exciting world of mobile apps for 18 months, with an amazing small team made up of internal and external hires. If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything but working alongside smart, friendly people makes it so much easier.
I was well of out my comfort zone to being with, as I'd never been a project manager before and had no experience in developing mobile apps. But the culture and people at Reece provides all the support you could ask for.
Working so closely with our team has even made me consider trying my hand at development. Reece is the kind of company where that's viable.
