Affinity Education Group rounds out the week with more nominations in HR Awards
Earlier this week The Sector shared news regarding Affinity Education Group which had been recognised as finalists in the Australian HR Awards, celebrating their efforts in change management.
As the week concludes, Affinity have been recognised in an additional two categories – Australian HR Team of the Year (>1000) and Employer of Choice (>1000).
The Australian HR Awards recognise excellence in HR leadership and people management across a range of sectors and industries, including early childhood education and care (ECEC).
Affinity Education Group employee, Emily Ellis, has previously spoken about the opportunities and support which come from being a member of the Affinity team. Emily is currently working as a Centre Manager in a maternity leave contract position at Aussie Kindies Early Learning Frankston.
Ms Ellis has worked in the sector for seven years, beginning as a room leader in a nursery room, and has worked with Affinity for the duration of her career, initially as a room leader, and then as an assistant centre manager for Aussie Kindies Cranbourne.
“I did my placement at Aussie Kindies Cranbourne and the Centre Manager, Jenna, gave me ample support to continue my journey. I’ve also had a lot of support from my State Manager Kellie, and Area Manager Eleni, they have both provided great opportunities and have always believed in me to do my best” Emily said.
When asked about the benefits of working for Affinity, the strength of the network, as well as the support office team were highlights for Emily, who also spoke about the professional development opportunities she has been offered along the way.
“Affinity is a wonderful company that will support you to succeed, if you show that you are willing to learn and work hard. Although Affinity is a large company, everyone takes the time to get to know you and is willing to give a helping hand” she added.
