Coming to work a joy at Kurrajong Timber

Just the change I needed

Craig Lees loves coming to work every day.

Senior Supervisor at Kurrajong Timber, Craig joined the Kurrajong team in August last year, initially at Kurrajong Recycling, before moving into the position at Timber.

Manufacturing is clearly in his blood – his previous role, which he held for 38 years, was also in production and manufacturing, as production manager for a local company.

While he enjoyed his former role, it was time for a change, and when the Kurrajong opportunity came up he jumped at the chance, he said.

“I needed a change, I was in the same job for a very, very, long time.“

And it was just the jolt he needed.

“I love everything about coming to work every day.”

Offering a range of products, Kurrajong Timber has a team of about 30, most of which are supported staff.

It is the staff that Craig loves most about his role.

“They are all characters in their own special way.”

“I thoroughly enjoy it here at Timber, just watching the growth in the team and the satisfaction on their faces when they achieve their goals is so rewarding. They all give it their best and we all have a great time and a bit of fun along the way.”

In Craig’s spare time he likes to relax watching the NRL and motorsports. Going for rides on his Indian motorcycle and spending as much time as he can with his family. Craig is a Poppy to three grandchildren and thinks that is the best thing in the world.
