SPONSOR: Pamela Wakeford, Centre Manager, QueensPlaza -Vicinity Centres
I have a background in public relations, print production, marketing and advertising. My career began as a studio manager/client account manager in an advertising agency, a role I enjoyed for 7 years. After relocating from South Australia to QLD with my family just over 6 years ago, I initially worked part time in Administration and Marketing. I commenced at Runaway Bay Centre in 2013 as the Retail Coordinator and also filled a short term contract as Marketing Coordinator. I enjoyed the property industry and the part time role so much that I moved into a full time Retail and Operations Coordinator position in 2014. This role gave me a great insight into the operational side of the industry, particularly tenancy delivery. I was then appointed Retail Manager in September 2015. I love the diversity of my role and the skills I have acquired through working in other departments.
