Every week we spend five minutes getting to know a SECC staff member. Today we chat with our much-loved Information Support Officer Jayne Lee.
1. What’s your role at South Eastern Community Connect?
I’m the receptionist at our Eastlakes office and I’ve worked for SECC since May 2016.
2. What are three things you love about your current job?
I love being able to connect people with programs, classes and social groups which then link them to the wider community.
I like being part of a team that really does care about people. They care about providing services that the local people need and want.
I also enjoy the variety of my job. No two days are the same.
3. What was your first-ever job?
I worked in a shoe shop in Leeds market (in the UK) when I was 13. I started at 8am and finished at 6pm and earned the equivalent of $15. I thought I was rich!
My first ‘proper’ job was as a layout artist at a printing company.
4. What was your favourite TV show growing up?
It’s impossible to choose one – I had three: Mork & Mindy, Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em, and Fawlty Towers.
5. Which store would you max out your credit card in if money was no object?
I don’t have a credit card, I’m old school and would rather save for something I want than buy it now and pay later. If money was no object I wouldn’t spend it on things. I’d use it to help make a difference in the lives of the vulnerable.
6. What was your favourite toy as a kid?
My Sindy doll. She was blonde and beautiful and I wanted to be her!
7. What was your childhood nickname (if any)?
8. Do you have any phobias?
Not really. I’m not overly fond of spiders, but I can catch them and throw them outside.
9. What are three things still left on your bucket list?
I have an ever-expanding bucket list but the three below are the next to be ticked off:
- To learn to ride a motorbike, so I can do a road trip on my own Harley Davidson.
- To spend time within a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas (when restrictions ease).
- To learn how to play the guitar.
