My future is built on big ideas
Where to next? That’s the question that’s always in your head when it’s your job to help Telstra’s business units develop and implement their growth strategies.
When working with different parts of the business, I can relate to the way that the first thought is always about the customer. Whether it’s looking at businesses we can partner with or buy, or scoping out a new direction, the customer is always front and centre.
Finance and Strategy is a fascinating place to be if you want to be instrumental in how Telstra evolves to meet the customer expectations of the future. I love being able to help the company take that next step in its evolution.
Since I joined Telstra I’ve had a few different roles; in mergers and acquisitions, mobile strategy and product development and now here in corporate finance, strategy and development.
The exciting thing about Telstra is the amazing support you get to develop your career path.
My move from mergers and acquisitions to mobile was a risk, as I had no experience there. What I did have was transferable skills, so the company encouraged me to make the transition and broaden my horizons.
There’s such a huge range of talented people to meet, learn from and collaborate with here, that you really can take your career in many different directions.
