Career Success Story
Paige Matthees started with Wilson Security in 2017 after she was successful in her application in a Uniform Coordinator and Administration role. Shortly after starting with the company, Paige successfully completed one of the first Making Tracks programs where she obtained her security licence.
Career Progression: After completing the Making Tracks Program in 2019, Paige was promoted into an Operator role in our NOC, then onto a Client Services Administrator in 2020 when a position became available for covering maternity leave. Before the leave period ended, Paige was asked to stay on permanently to be promoted as a Client Services Manager due to her team wanting her to stay. During Paige's time in these roles, she developed strong relationships with clients and external stakeholders in schools, retail, critical infrastructure and aged care facilities.
Paige: "I have grown professionally and personally in my 4.5 years and can't thank my team past and present enough for the role they played in that. I think what Wilson Security is doing for Indigenous Engagement is fantastic."
