A day in the life of ... Leainne Nathan

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.
