Meet Alison

As one of our Business Development Administrators, Alison’s role involves a lot of research, so that she can seek out prospective new employer partners to work with Lifetime and enable the business to grow. Alison was lucky enough to be given tickets to Bon Iver at the Sydney Opera House and it was a performance she will never forget.

Lifetime love to get people involved, celebrate achievements, and recognize hard work. Everyone is always smiling.

When I walked in for my interview, the office was buzzing. It wasn’t a stuffy, silent workplace. I instantly felt comfortable and knew it was a place I would want to come to every morning.

The team. Everyone always says hello and there is a lot of laughter in the office.

What do you get up to on a typical day?

Role development is commonly mentioned – your manager makes different progression routes clear if you are interested in another sector within the business. I’m happy in Business Development, but you never know over time what may spark your interest!

I didn’t know a thing about apprenticeships when I started, so I didn’t really have a clue what was going on for a while! I’ve been working for Lifetime for two months and I feel like I could write a book on them now! Information is plentiful and accessible.

The Business Development Team is vital to source and win new prospect employer partners that Lifetime can partner with.

You’re given plentiful resources and time to learn, especially when you’re new to the industry.

Loud! But in all seriousness, I haven’t had any doubts since I started the role and I am enjoying it more every day.

Lifetime is fun, quirky and inclusive. They love to get people involved, celebrate achievements, and recognize hard work. Everyone is always smiling.

Being a training provider, they know the importance of employee development and recognition for a happy workplace. I’ve never worked in an office that actually sticks to their word and holds regular 1-2-1s and team meetings. The support is encouraging.

If you’re looking for a new and different industry, this is a great alternative. It’s a developing industry and it’s quite exciting to be a part of and learn about!
