Jan Tuiach began working at Bankstown Sports in 1989 in a range of roles including bar, tray, gaming and events. Jan was also a dedicated member of the United Voice Union, which is an organization of over 120,000 Australian workers who fight for fair and just treatment at work. Jan occupied a role on the executive branch of the committee for over 10 years and was a Union Delegate, committed to helping staff be there best self in the workplace.
In 1991, Jan began working in the Bottle Shop, which was located in the area that Travelodge currently occupies, and says it was her favourite role to date. In 2016, when the Bottle Shop closed, Jan began working on the door.
“I loved working in the Bottle Shop. I have so many great memories from my time working there. Particularly during the festive season, where I would bring in my own Christmas decorations and decorate the shop.”
Jan says she will miss the people at Bankstown Sports.
“I really enjoyed coming to work and seeing my colleagues. I always had great company and valued working in a team. I have made great bonds with the patrons over the years and I will be sad to not see them frequently. I am going to miss the atmosphere of Bankstown Sports.”
Jan says she loves being busy and there are a few things she would like to do with her extra free time.
“With my free time I hope to give back to the community. I would like to volunteer my time to Bankstown Lidcombe Hospital and assist at the Salvation Army lunches. I am also looking forward to having time to go to lunches with my friends and stay healthy at Curves.”
“I would like to thank the Directors for their ongoing support and kindness over the years, and I look forward to coming back to the club as a regular patron.”
