Faces of Sharp


Jodie

Product Manager
Marketing

My first experience with Sharp was during my work experience program in 2009 whilst I was studying my Bachelor of Science (Nutrition & Food).  I spent 2 months learning and developing skills required to complete my degree. After this, I successfully applied for the position of Product Development Officer where I was able to apply my knowledge to Sharp’s technology.  This involved creating and developing recipes and auto menus for the microwaves, steam ovens and other home appliances.  I was also able to use troubleshooting skills to respond to external customer enquiries. Today, my career continues to progress as I work as a Product Manager. My job involves being responsible for some of our whitegoods products including Microwave Ovens and Small Home Appliances. For these categories, I am involved in various duties including market research and analysis, product planning, pricing and distribution. I am also involved in the creation of point of sale material for our products in store and any promotions / events that we run throughout the year. To be successful in my role it is imperative to have a range of organisational, analytical and creative skills. In our Marketing team we are always trying to think of ways which we can help to increase our branding and product sales as well as new and innovative product ideas to meet the demands and requests of our customers. The things I like most about working at Sharp are the different challenges, events and the people I get work with every day. I am lucky enough to be part of a great, supportive team. 


Kimberley

Sales Support Clerk
Sales


Hi, I’m Kimberley.
I started with Sharp in December 2013 as a full time trainee within the Spare Parts Division.  This job is all about ensuring correct processing of spare parts orders and following up with internal and external stakeholders. 
I have various tasks some of which are communicating and assisting with enquiries, maintaining the goods return system and sourcing and maintaining spare parts. 
In my role I am constantly learning new things! I have to be persistent, organised, patient, friendly and ready to go the extra mile. Having good memory skills is also handy to have – it helps me to remember those 13-digit long part numbers! 
Being in my role is about being part of a team. We work together to benefit our customers and service agents. 
After one year as a Trainee, I was delighted to have been offered a full time permanent position with Sharp. I have recently transferred into the Sales team working as a Sales Support Clerk.


Andrias

Workshop Technician
Service Direct


I commenced as a Trainee Technician in December 2012.  My job revolves around the configuration of new copier units before they are delivered to customers.  I am also involved in repair and refurbishment of the units as well as inventory control.  The key attributes and skills required to be successful in my role are: computer networking, electronic diagnostic skills and being proficient in using the Microsoft Office suite.  What I most like about working at Sharp is the teamwork and the strong support from my fellow colleagues, particularly as I am in a learning position.  I also thrive on new and interesting technologies and am thrilled to be a part of such an innovative company. I am grateful to Sharp for the opportunity to advance my skills after completing my traineeship.
