A day in the life of.....

Julia is the supervisor in a gourmet food distribution company. She has worked for the company for several years, starting in an entry level role and working her way up to Supervisor. This role is quite different to that of a non-supervisory employee and Julia initially found it difficult to manage staff and be part of the management team. Since commencing her Diploma of Leadership and Management, Julia has developed higher-level communication and leadership skills which have been essential for her role.

Day to day, Julia ensures that operations are conducted to meet the company budgets and policies. She supervises staff and delegates work to team members based on priorities and demands. She also conducts interviews, hires new staff, mentors and trains her team members and ensures that safety standards are met.

Julia supports her line-manager with setting KPI’s and tracking team members’ individual performance and also the business’s performance to meet the required objectives. Julia enjoys her challenging position and is increasing her knowledge of business concepts and strategies.
