What's your job about?
My job is to complete projects that have been given to me by Operation / Site Managers during different parts of my rotation, as of writing this I am just about to complete my Operation rotation. During the first month I worked as a storeperson; picking, packing receiving, returns. Though it didn’t seem relevant at the time, it has helped me out greatly when helping other store people, supervisors, and managers to bring new ideas to the table. One project I’ve completed was building a PowerPoint computer using a credit card size pc (Raspberry Pi) and allowing users to use a remote control to change slides on the presentation for use as a daily dashboard.

The limitation is the travel to different sites, Matraville all the way to Horsley Park and several in between. The travel can be both a positive and negative, as each site has different clients from different sectors such as Technology, Life Science and Healthcare and Retail.
