Meet the team - Kate Jones from Dubbo
30 October 2019
Kate was born and bred in Dubbo, so when she saw a job advertised on Seek based in the Boyce Dubbo office, she jumped at the chance to apply.
Name: Kate Jones
Role: Tech Cadet
Location: Boyce Dubbo Office, The Central West, NSW.
1. What sparked your interest in applying for a job with Boyce?
Word of mouth about Boyce as an employer in Dubbo has always been really positive, so when I saw a job on Seek with them I was very keen to apply. I actually applied for an Admin Role, but when the Boyce team noticed I am currently studying a Bachelor of Information Technology at Charles Sturt University, they offered me the Tech Cadetship.
2. How long have you been working with Boyce?
I have been with Boyce for six months now and I feel I am getting a very well-rounded experience. I work in the Technology Team, who oversees the technology infrastructure that the Boyce teams use. I am in the office four days a week and one day a week is dedicated to my uni work. I’ll complete my degree in 12-months time and then plan to work full-time.
3. What role do you think financial services plays in regional communities, particularly in times of drought?
Being in drought seems to have brought the community in Dubbo together. Everyone is very keen to shop locally and support local businesses whenever possible.
4. What do you love about living and working in Dubbo?
I enjoy spending time on the walking trails that are around Dubbo. I was born and bred here, so I am really excited to have landed a great role in my local town.
5. How do you wind down after work and uni hours?
I practice martial arts and I have a black belt.
