We talk to Leainne Nathan about what a typical day looks like for her at FSM
Q: What is your official job title - and what does it mean?
A: I'm the FSM Service Delivery Manager. I mentor, influence, encourage and enable staff to produce their best work for the families we serve.
Q: What time do you usually get into the office - and what is the first thing you do?
A: It varies. Sometime between 7.30 and 9.30 depending on what is going on. Sometimes I come in early because there are fewer distractions. Sometimes I work from home because there are fewer distractions! A big part of my job is being available for people - but like everyone I need to be able to concentrate sometimes too.
Q: What is the first thing you do when you get into the office?
A: Have a coffee! It used to be clearing emails, but smartphone technology has turned that into an ongoing task.
Q: What is the most important part of your day?
A: From 6am to 9am, I do my best thinking at that time. I'm clearly a morning person!
Q: What is your favourite part of your day?
A: From 4pm - 7pm – that’s when I wind down and catch up with my family.
Q: What would you change about work if you could?
A: I would like people working in this organisation to have pay parity with colleagues doing similar work in central Government.
