Jatin Awad believes that in Australia, if
you are efficient and you work hard, the sky is the limit.
The branch manager at ANZ’s Collins Street branch, where he has been for about 9 years, moved to Adelaide in 2004 as an IT student to explore opportunities in Australia. “There were not many Indians in Adelaide at the time. They mostly went to Sydney or Melbourne.”
He did various jobs while he was studying but his aim was to build a connection with the locals. His break came when he joined ANZ as a teller in 2008. He has been promoted several times since then.
“I believe in a good work ethic, efficiency and doing right by the customer.”
The Collins street branch is a prestigious location and Jatin is proud of his achievements but what drives him is growth. He is not one to rest on his laurels.
“I inspire and motivate my staff to be passionate about their work. Once they feel appreciated in their job, they give their 200 per cent.”
He is not without challenges though but he takes it in his stride.
“Balance between family and work is important, but you have to give up certain things to move up in life.”
