OUR STORIES, OUR JOURNEYS
From the beaches of Broome to Crown’s Crystal Club
After moving to Melbourne from Broome, I heard on the grapevine that Crown was keen to employ Indigenous Australians. I contacted the Indigenous Employment Manager, and next thing I knew, I was a Customer Contact Agent.
The first thing I noticed was the training and support I received, especially from my supervisor who helped me with everything I had to learn from catching trams to answering customers’ questions. I made some fantastic friends in that job, but I found myself yearning for a face-to-face role where I could interact with guests.
I talked with our Indigenous Employment Manager, Sean Armistead, who suggested I apply for a position within the exclusive Crystal Club. With his support and coaching, I got my application in and prepared for the interview. Just two weeks later, and much to my surprise, I started in my new role as Receptionist in the Crystal Club - an exclusive lounge for VIP guests in Crown Towers! This is a close-knit team, where everyone supports each other, and I totally love it. My supervisor is terrific, and has been very understanding when I’ve had to attend culturally significant events back in Broome.
I’ve always received fantastic support at Crown, and I’m really happy here.
