Faces of Sharp
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 an Assistant 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.

As a working parent, my primary objective is balancing both work and family life. I find this balance working at Sharp. Since starting in November 2012, I have been working in a part time job share arrangement. This allows me to spend quality time with my family as well as enjoy a challenging career. I am responsible for the processing of outgoing payments in a timely manner, follow up of any outstanding invoices from vendors and also internal follow up on any invoicing related matters. For this role, I have to be extremely pro-active as it is very busy, you have to be on the go all the time, be quick and efficient in responding to queries both inbound and outbound. I feel very proud to be working for Sharp, a global company who provides its’ employees a wonderful working environment with the flexibility to work part time. It’s very suitable for me as well because I live locally and it gives me more valuable time with family then be on the road.
