1.5 years service
As someone who likes everything to be in order and planned in advance, Cecilia is ideally suited to her role as Group Payroll & Accounts Administrator. Cecilia applies a strategic approach to everything she does, planning her way forward and looking at all angles before making carefully-considered decisions. Working hand in hand with Ashleigh Johnston, she ensures everyone gets paid what they should when they should and is the go-to person for any queries around payroll.
Cecilia attributes hours worked against jobs for job profit and loss reporting and reconciles timesheets against vehicle GPS records for all branches.
Cecilia joined Camelspace in a maternity cover capacity before taking on a permanent role in March 2018. She enjoys the nature of her role and loves being part of a supportive and close-knit team.
Her background in payroll administration began when she joined Fletcher Building in 2006 in the Gerard Roofing division where she was also involved in accounts administration and internal audits. On leaving Fletchers, she began studying for a Post-Grad in Business Administration and has one paper to complete to gain the qualification. She returned to payroll administration with the recruitment division at Auckland Council, initially on a contract basis before being offered a permanent position. After three years, she transferred into a new role within council, spending almost two years as HR Information Systems Coordinator before moving into an advisory role. As Service Delivery Advisor, she dealt with any and all queries related to payroll, HR administration and recruitment for the entire council staff, then numbering over 10,000.
Someone who enjoys being busy and challenging herself, Cecilia is a great believer in personal and professional development. Each time she has looked to make a significant change in her professional life, she begins by educating herself in her chosen direction. Her first qualification was a Commerce degree, majoring in accounting, which she has put to good use throughout her career. Deciding she was ready for a change when her first child was small, she completed a Certificate in Education with the aim of teaching children, then her second child arrived immediately after!
Hailing originally from the Philippines, Cecilia brings another nationality to the diverse Camelspace team.
