One sentence describing your position:

I Iam the first point of contact for any HR related queries.

How did you come to work for Dulux?

I used to work in St.Kilda and did not enjoy the long, traffic jammed travel to and from work.  I started looking out for opportunities to work closer to home and that's when an opportunity in Orica Woodcare came along and I have not looked back since then.

What do you enjoy the most about the jobs you've had?

The jobs I've had so far have given me the opportunity to develop and enhance my skills and knowledge and grow as an individual.  I enjoy learning new things and of course the variety these jobs have offered me.

What have been your career highlights?

Move from Sales support in Orica Woodcare to the Human Resources Officer role for OCP. After being in Admin/Sales Support and similar roles for almost 9 years I was ready for new challenges.

What training have you done at Dulux?

I have done a First Aid course through the company and have also done the Dulux Colour Solutions course at the Dulux Training Academy.

Would you recommend Dulux as an employer to your friends and if so why?

I would most definitely recommend Dulux to my family and friends.  I have been with the company for over 2 years now and I love the work culture, flexibility, work life balance and the development opportunities it offers.  It's a great place to work!!

HR Officer for Dulux New Zealand

 

One sentence describing your position: Provision of wide ranging support in HR project delivery, Learning & Development, Corporate induction, employee life cycle paperwork, HR systems maintenance and policy clarification.

How did you come to work for Dulux?

I came into Dulux through the Graduate Program. My current role is a third year rotation within Dulux. I started off in the Recruitment centre, recruiting for various positions for Orica Consumer Products Australia wide. Following that I was given the opportunity to be in a project role within the HR department working on various different HR projects for the OCP demerger. This role was a real eye-opener and provided me with a lot of challenges.

What do you enjoy the most about the jobs you've had?

I really enjoy the diversity in all my roles. I went from developing talent sourcing strategies in recruitment to having a strategic vision and developing frameworks for a high performance organisation within my project role. My current day to day tasks are all quite diverse in the sense that I am dealing with various aspects of HR across Australia and New Zealand.

What have been your career highlights?

My career highlight has definitely been my role as a Project Analyst. This role allowed me to be involved with the demerger of OCP and exposed me to work activities at a strategic level. This is an opportunity that a graduate rarely gets to experience and is definitely a rewarding one.

What training have you done at Dulux?

I am glad to be working for a company that values training and development in its employees. In my given time with Dulux thus far, I have been able to attend various types of training such as Hay Group Job Evaluation, Managing for Insight, Targeted Selection and Dulux Interior courses at the onsite Training Academy.

Would you recommend Dulux as an employer to your friends and if so why?

Yes I would because I love my role and the fact that I get to deal with everyone across the business allows me to say that Dulux has a great workplace culture with a work environment full of enthusiastic & friendly people.
