Con­sul­tants nom­i­nated for na­tional award

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

FOUR mem­bers of Com­mu­nity So­lu­tions have been nom­i­nated for the Na­tional Em­ploy­ment Ser­vices As­so­ci­a­tion Em­ploy­ment Con­sul­tant of the Year Award.

Casey Dick­in­son, Tina West, Kim Clegg and Les­ley Eng­land have been named as fi­nal­ists fol­low­ing their out­stand­ing ser­vice de­liv­ery in the wake of Cy­clone Deb­bie.

Ms Dick­in­son’s ex­cep­tional work with the peo­ple of the Whit­sun­days in the wake of Cy­clone Deb­bie has prompted the nom­i­na­tion which is one of five awards for ex­cel­lence of­fered by NESA in the em­ploy­ment sec­tor each year.

At just 21, she found her­self in charge of a case load of more than 200 clients, many of whom had been dis­placed by the storms and who were in dire straits.

The Em­ploy­ment Con­sul­tant of the Year was thrilled by the recog­ni­tion for her­self and her team.

“I am on cloud nine … to know that I have given ev­ery­thing 110% and have come out with such re­ward­ing re­sults,” she said.

Com­mu­nity So­lu­tions gen­eral man­ager Tom Man­gan said the achieve­ment was par­tic­u­larly sig­nif­i­cant, as the past year had in­cluded a pe­riod of par­tic­u­lar chal­lenge.

“De­spite the ex­ten­sive dis­rup­tion of Cy­clone Deb­bie, our Whit­sun­days team have gone above and be­yond to achieve im­prove­ments in their al­ready-out­stand­ing per­for­mance and ser­vice,” he said.
