Why did you decide to join GIC?
Prior to joining GIC, I worked as an engineer in buildings, which limited my understanding of the organisation. Seeking a transition away from direct engineering services to an office-based role, I took the initiative to research GIC’s industry and reached out to the company directly. This proactive approach allowed me to gain a better understanding of the organisation and led to my successful transition to a new role at GIC.
What does your typical workday look like?
My workday typically involves managing ongoing projects of various sizes, ranging from small to medium. Additionally, I handle any Helpdesk-related issues that arise within the office, as well as daily security matters such as CCTV monitoring and staff access issues. Throughout the day, I also address any ad-hoc matters that require my attention.
What do you like most about working here?
I find my role to be diverse and dynamic, which keeps me engaged and motivated. I particularly enjoy working on large projects, such as office changes, where I can be directly involved in the engineering aspects. However, I also find satisfaction in completing smaller tasks around the office that may go unnoticed by others, such as ensuring the office is well-stocked with supplies or fixing minor equipment issues. Overall, I appreciate the variety of tasks that my role entails.
How would you describe the learning & development culture at GIC?
I have always felt encouraged to learn and grow, with no restrictions on personal and professional development. The company places a strong emphasis on supporting staff in their learning journeys, which has enabled me to expand my knowledge and skills over time.
