Primary Connect safety lead celebrates 15 years

Promoted from picker to Safety lead at Primary Connect, Erin Mealey has shared details on her prosperous career with Woolworths Group.

Following a career as a picker and then various management roles, Mealey was delighted when Supply Chain Manager Shane Kerr promoted her to Safety Lead of the Townsville site 12 months ago, after noticing her passion and dedication for work and the Woolworths Group.

“It was really nice to have someone like Shane give me the opportunity to prove myself,” Mealey said, shedding a light on the importance of growth and mentors in the workplace.

“There is so much room to grow a career with Woolworths Group,” she said.

“Just because you start out in one position, you’re by no means stuck in that position forever. There are so many opportunities – you just have to say yes to them!”.

After the 2019 floods, the RDC went through a $12 million expansion to create a better supply chain network for communities in Far North Queensland.

This meant that Erin and her team were able to plan against severe weather events, provide better service to the region’s 39 Woolworths supermarkets, and build rewarding careers within Woolworths Group.

“Woolworths Group has helped regional north Queensland by providing stable jobs and a greater service for our customers,” Mealey said.

“The investment was a confidence boost for everyone in this region and us here at the DC.”

The safety lead celebrates 15 years with the Woolworths Group this year.
