Providing support has earned Northfield’s Sarah Smith some special recognition.

Sarah (pictured right) has been named the GI Group Associate of the Quarter for her work ethic in supporting the Saturday night shift and the day team during peak processing windows.

“She is a very friendly, reliable and supportive member of the team who is always willing to go that extra mile,” praises Senior Operations Manager, Dave McSeveney.

Due to graduate in the summer, Sarah, an Associate on the day and Saturday teams, has been helping on Bulk at the weekends since she was 16 and, as she continued with her university studies, during term breaks.

“It’s great. We have a good team on Saturdays and I have been really welcomed,” says Sarah who admits to feeling a little embarrassed by her win as she’s “not here very much”.

However, she says that her time with iPSL has served as a really important foundation for her future career as a primary school teacher. “It has taught me how to be responsible and take ownership for what you’re doing.”
