Meet Sophie Hall
In her role as Corporate Services Admin, Sophie Hall focuses on finance, maintenance and “anything administration” to make sure the Access 2 Place office is well stocked – including having enough coffee to keep everyone going!
“My role in corporate services is to help the office run on a day-to-day basis and provide assistance to other staff members if needed,” Sophie says.
“As I primarily answer the phones I am always talking to our tenants. That includes things like recording maintenance requests, booking routine inspections and so on.”
Sophie studied at UniSA and has a Degree in Business – HR Management.
“I had always worked in hospitality, mainly in cafes. My first job was in a burger shop, I was there for about five years and worked with a lot of my friends, so it was great,” Sophie says.
“I left there and worked in the Adelaide Central Markets as a café manager for about a year before moving to Canada to travel and work. When I returned from Canada, I decided that I had had enough of café work and wanted something office based where I could work 9am-5pm.”
Sophie says the best thing about working at A2P is “the people!”
“Our office is small, but it is so nice to be close to everyone and to be able to walk into your manager’s office and ask a question face to face,” she says.
“It is nice to know that we are helping people find great long-term housing. If not that, we can at least provide information to point them in the right direction which is always appreciated’.
“I never thought I would work in the disability sector but I am honestly so happy that I do.”
