Julie Gray is something of a juggler, multi-tasking a variety of admin, IT, and human resources tasks across South Eastern Community Connect’s two locations.

Got a question about our day-to-day operations?

There’s a good chance Julie will know the answer.

Our very own superhero

“Julie powers through her day, managing a multitude of tasks with cheerfulness, positivity and stamina,” CEO Kate Melhopt says.

“When it comes to pride in her work, Julie excels – and that’s why I nominated her for the Rotary Pride of Workmanship Award.”

The whole SECC team was excited to see Julie declared the overall winner of the evening out of a pool of six people who were shortlisted.

Not only that, she was given the inaugural Sydney Mutual Bank 2019 Award for Excellence.

A humbling experience

“It was very nice to be nominated, and quite humbling,” Julie says.

“There are a lot of people who could’ve been nominated, so I’m very grateful for this recognition.”

Back in the day

Julie started with SECC back in 2007, working on reception before stepping into the role of Centre Coordinator which was previously held by Lyndal Bathis.

“Julie’s organisational and people skills, as well as her willingness to step into other roles where needed – from running fitness classes through to helping at playgroups – are a credit to her,” Kate says.

“We’re very lucky to have her as part of our team.”
