Here at HTG we pride ourselves on humble beginnings and General Manager of Group Operations at HTG, Heidi Loomes has had just that. Starting her career with us as Service Executive for Telstra Store Helensvale, she’s held many roles over her last thirteen years at HTG, however her favourite role is being a Mother to her three young girls.
In 2006 Heidi and her husband landed in Perth with nothing but their suitcases and a plan to travel around Australia. From the Great Ocean Road to Byron Bay the pair fell in love with Australia and decided to make the Gold Coast their forever home. Having yet to find a permanent residency, Heidi was living in a tent at Main Beach at the time she received a call from the Director. Heidi recalls her excitement the moment she scored an interview for her soon to be new role as Service Executive.
Family values at HTG
At HTG, we pride ourselves on strong family values, with ‘friendship’ as a major value we live by, we also believe in welcoming you back after babies and travel. This is a value and motto in which, after having three children, Heidi can attest to.
Heidi is one of the many parents here at HTG who are living proof of the highly regarded family values, which both aids and encourages their people to return to work, that makes HTG a truly great place to work.
With each of her children, Heidi was able to return to work in a capacity which suited her and her family. Some of Heidi’s fondest memories has been taking her kids along to enjoy HTG events, such as the Techwell family days.
As HTG grew Heidi was able to develop and advance her skill set alongside the business with constant support from HTG Directors. She also credits the supportive family environment here at HTG, to her ability to adapt her role as her family grew. This value extends further than the initial months of returning to work, now with her daughters being 10, 8 and 6 Heidi is still able to put her family first. She feels with the support of the team at HTG she is has not only been able to achieve the work-life balance she desires but has also been encouraged to.
A great place to work
The best part about working at HTG is the family environment. Heidi says the team has become her family, with all of her extended family back home in England, being able to work in an environment and with people who feel like family every day is amazing.
After thirteen years here with us, three young girls and a hugely successful career behind her, Heidi believes HTG is a great place to work. Heidi would love to spend her Mothers Day with her husband and daughters out on their boat followed by a picnic on the beach.
