IT Graduate Programme Discover Matthew's story
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 they 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 they 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.”
Reece Support Centre Graduate Programme Discover Jason's story
Jason Zivkovic’s graduate experience is unlike most. After completing his commerce degree he worked for a small management consulting firm, but wasn’t happy there. “I wanted the structure of a larger company. I knew a couple of people who worked for Reece and never heard a bad thing about the organisation, so I applied for the graduate program. I could see it was going to offer support and training.”
After a short time in the branches, Jason made full use of his management training, working on projects to improve supply records, HR programs, waste reduction and discovery on new products.
“The variety was huge. It was great because I got to see so much of the business, but I decided I actually wanted more operational experience.”
Positions as 2IC at two branches followed before Jason made the move back to management projects and his current role in Pricing and Product Information. “I love data,” he says. “Pulling it together and finding meaningful insights. Information is powerful, especially in business.”
IT Project Manager Discover Owen's story
“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.
Marketing Graduate Programme Discover Arabella's Story
Arabella Clark fell in love with business while working at a café in the Whitsundays. This passion led to a business degree at Monash majoring in Marketing and Management and ultimately to the Reece Graduate program.
‘I’ve been given so much responsibility. As a marketing graduate here you’re not making people coffee and learning second-hand. In the first couple of weeks I was signing off decisions worth tens of thousands of dollars.’
‘It’s fast-track learning. I’ve had the opportunity to sit in on Senior Leadership meetings, to get a holistic look at the business and where it’s headed. There’s so much opportunity and so much trust placed in you. Every day is different, you’re never doing the same task.’
After 18 months in the role, Arabella is driving the Actrol trade shows herself. ‘It’s my responsibility to make them happen. I’m very proud, but it’s nothing out of the ordinary here.
‘If you show initiative and care for your work, they’ll keep handing it to you. It’s a great place to start a career.’
