20 Aug Employee of the Month July 2020
A Long Serving Stand Out
July proved to be our busiest month since the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak and as ever our team were busy filling requests for new and existing clients. From plumbers in Ingleburn, carpenters in Palm Beach, labourers in Newcastle and operators in Parramatta, HLH Group had it covered. As always there were plenty of brilliant candidates to choose from with some excellent new workers joining the team and some of our longest-serving workers carrying on that great form into the start of the new financial year. In the end, it was one of our the longest-serving workers who took home the crown after much debating between our consultants. After more than 10 months of fantastic service to HLH, Jack Murphy deservedly won Employee Of The Month.
Where Jack Started
Jack first applied to work with Hunter Labour Hire back in October 2019, 2 days later he worked his first shift and he has been working for us ever since. Jack has performed exceptionally in a number of different labouring roles and always receiving fantastic feedback from our clients. Coming from a manufacturing background in Scotland, Jack completed a 4-year apprenticeship in Manufacturing Engineering and gained a further 2 years’ experience as a qualified tradesman prior to coming to Australia.
Jacks first few placements were with high-end residential builders around Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and Lower North Shore. In these roles, he worked alongside carpenters, assisted with demolition work and groundwork, and helped clean up around the site. Both clients commented on Jack’s attitude and work ethic, expressing they would have him back any day. Jack’s next placement took him down to Bowral in the Southern Highlands where he spent the run-up to Christmas working with an electrical contractor installing cable trays and running cables on the new Bowral Hospital. The New Year saw Jack work in several different positions including manufacturing, residential building, landscaping labour and installing decorative art for a display in Darling Harbour. Following a site meeting with a remedial builder, Jack was then selected to work alongside another HLH worker to remove existing louvres on an apartment block and install new ones. In this role Jack once again showed why he was one of our best workers, working unsupervised, following plan drawings and getting the job finished ahead of schedule with all louvres fitted to spec and within tolerance.
Client Feedback on Jack
“Jack has been brilliant and exactly what we needed. He was shown the job and the plans to follow and off he went. He is getting through the work quickly and efficiently and there has been no mistakes or defects to fix. He has been early to work every morning and is working well alongside the other guys on site. A brilliant worker somebody we should keep hold off”.
Where is Jack Now?
Jack most recently started back with one of our high-end residential builders in Palm Beach as a trade assistant. Travelling up from the city every day, Jack has been driving one of the HLH cars and has been more than happy to take extra guys along with him when required. Onsite he has been helping with an internal renovation with the remodelling of bathrooms, bedrooms, the living area and the back garden.
Words from Jack
“I have been working with Hunter Labour since I arrived in Australia. I have been on a variety of different sites and working with different trades picking up good experiences throughout my time as well as getting the opportunity to earn a good rate of pay and get good hours in weekly. The boys in the office are all spot on and have kept me busy throughout my time in Australia. Any questions or problems that have arisen they have dealt with them no hassle.”
A big thank you to Jack from everyone at HLH Group and well done on winning the July Employee of the Month.
