Variety – the spice of life
Variety is the spice of life and there’s plenty of it in her work at RentCover, according to relative newbie Doris Donald.
Doris says she loves going into work each day, not knowing what the day will hold for her.
The Client Services Consultant has been with RentCover for just eight months, but is already embracing the work and her new-found network of colleagues and friends.
After seeing the job advertised online, Doris researched EBM thoroughly – and she liked what she found.
“I’ve worked for a lot of companies and franchisees and this is easily the best one. You are very well looked after,” Doris said.
After six years managing groups of Subway outlets around Melbourne and a stint on the road as a sales rep, Doris was ready for a new career direction.
“Most of my working years have been in hospitality and management and it was time for a big change, to get into a company and grow a new career.
“I’m rapt I made the change.”
For Doris, every day is different and she really enjoys the work and the camaraderie of her 18 workmates, who serve the insurance needs of landlords across Australia.
“It’s a surprise every day. You don’t know who’s going to call or what they’ll want,” she said.
When not in the office, Doris enjoys stand-up paddle boarding with partner Dave on Port Phillip Bay, near their suburban Chelsea home.
Weekends are spent with friends over cheese and wine nights or barbecues, time at the gym or a movie, or watching the footy on TV (if she doesn’t go to the game).
Doris is a mad Hawthorn fan and, for obvious reasons, admits to thoroughly enjoying the past few AFL seasons!
