Name: Taryn Batt
Role: Administration and Customer Service Officer
Meet Taryn, our hard-working and passionate Administration and Customer Service Officer in Narangba.
When Taryn completed year 12 last year, she had plans to join the police force. However, after a lot of consideration, she decided that she wasn’t quite ready to start her career as a policewoman.
This led Taryn to a full-time traineeship with Cleanaway.
Taryn has only been working for Cleanaway for a short amount of time, but couldn’t be happier with her decision. She has learnt so much in her role, not only about Cleanaway but also herself. “I enjoy all the different aspects of my job, especially meeting new people and continuing to learn new things every day.” Taryn says.
“I’m so proud to be working for Cleanaway – we’re doing so much to benefit Australia’s future and the company’s values align with my own. When I finish my traineeship, I want to stay with Cleanaway. There are a lot of opportunities and pathways available here, and I want to work towards a leadership role.”
“My favourite part about working with Cleanaway is the working environment and the people. The people I work with have made my experience with Cleanaway awesome. I am surrounded by such caring people, it’s become more than a team to me – its more like a second family.”
This year’s NAIDOC theme, “Because of her, we can!” means a lot to Taryn. “The past has often left Aboriginal women feeling unnoticed, but the significant roles Aboriginal women continue to do within Australia have become more recognised. So, to dedicate NAIDOC Week to Aboriginal women not only means a lot to me, but it means so much to so many other people in Australia. I’m really grateful to be working for a company who really cares and gets involved with events like NAIDOC Week.”
