As the village population grows and construction nears completion, one of the busiest people at Nellie Melba is Rebecca Fynn.
The assistant to the manager joined the village in October, last year, and has hit the ground running.
Rebecca is a go-to person for residents with any questions or issues requiring assistance, is involved in the recruitment of staff, organises welcome meetings for new residents, and so much more besides.
“I’m not only doing an assistant manager’s role, I’m doing a fair bit of everything and getting all this experience and knowledge.
“I love interacting with people and this is another role where I’m still interacting with people and talking to everyone and getting things done. It’s just a wonderful environment to be in.”
The former HR administrator was drawn to Ryman Healthcare by “the opportunity to grow with the village and see all this progression and see the end result for all the hard work”.
“I was like, ‘Wow, I can really help out from the beginning to achieve a really good result’.”
Rebecca says one of the highlights of the job so far has been getting to know residents, and letting them get to know her.
“Sometimes when they come in they just tell me about their family, their friends, so it’s really nice.
“I’ve got no regrets so far, it’s just interesting and I’m just so excited to learn so much more to be honest.”
