Bank’s jobs for the girls re­warded

Townsville Bulletin - - The Goss -

HARD WORK: Kerry Young, Sarah Fitz­patrick, Sue Byrnes, Joanne Lumb, Aileen Cull, Re­becca Camp­bell, Ros Miles and Joan Raffe AT Queens­land Coun­try Credit Union women rule the roost.

The credit union’s nest eggs are looked af­ter by 85 per cent of women in its work­place.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion was awarded the Em­ployer of Choice for Women by the Min­is­ter of the Sta­tus of Women Kate El­lis this week.

Credit union’s chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Aileen Cull said she was never more proud of her team.

‘‘ It is nice my team can get recog­nised and they de­serve it, they are a great team,’’ she said. Mrs Cull started as an ac­coun­tant with the credit union in 1993, when it was a smaller or­gan­i­sa­tion.

‘‘ One of the things I have en­joyed is that the or­gan­i­sa­tion has grown tremen­dously in that time and I have been able to be proud of the growth,’’ she said.

‘‘ That has been re­ally re­ward­ing to me per­son­ally and also the op­por­tu­nity to step up to be CEO.

‘‘ I think that is a pretty ex­am­ple for all of our staff.’’
