We are proud to congratulate MEGT trainee Hayley Oakenfull who was recently nominated for the Trainee of the Year Award (Financial Services) at the NSW Regional Training Awards, Inverall Region.
Although Hayley did not take out top honours at the recent awards, she didn’t go home empty-handed – instead winning an award on the night for high achievement in financial services!
Hayley was employed as a trainee by MEGT in 2014 and placed with Host Employer ANZ to work as both a service consultant and personal banker.
After completing her Certificate III in Financial Services with MEGT Institute in just over 12 months instead of the usual 18 months, Hayley was offered permanent employment with ANZ and a chance to take the next step in her career.
Undertaking a business degree had always been an ambition for Hayley. When she was offered the chance to work full-time while she earned a qualification, she felt this was an opportunity she couldn’t turn down, and believes working while she studied was of huge benefit to her learning.
“The future is only looking up. The skills and knowledge that the traineeship and ANZ have provided me with have set my career up for anything I strive to achieve,” said Hayley.
Hayley is enjoying her time at ANZ and said it’s because she is working in a challenging environment where there is always something to learn. So far she has gained valuable skills and knowledge in customer service, leadership, accountability, time management and confidence, and is sure these skills will take her wherever her ambition may lead.
When asked what her nomination and high achievement award meant to her, Hayley said “I believe that it has proven that all the hard work and dedication has paid off. This traineeship is only the start of my career, and it had definitely provided me with the confidence to go further.”
MEGT is very proud of Hayley for her achievements so far wish her all the best for her future. Well done Hayley!
