Southport Sharks has some amazing long-standing team members at the club, including Café Team Leader, Lesley Bartlett who is approaching 19 years of employment. She attributes her long career at Sharks to the
amazing people and workplace culture at the club, always giving her a reason to come to work with a smile.
Lesley encouraged two of her children to join the team at Sharks for this very reason and is grateful to work alongside both Gavin (who works in the kitchen and car park) and Emma (who has worked in gaming and in crèche for nearly four years).
While at work, Lesley enjoys catching up with Gavin three times a week on their lunch break. A highlight of the week for Lesley is having the grandchildren on Monday mornings when Emma is working in the crèche, she loves taking them to dance classes and play groups.
Lesley values having her family together and gathers everyone at her place once a week for a home-cooked dinner. For Mother’s Day, Gavin said “the whole family gets together and treats mum to a delicious breakfast at a café.”
“Mum is the best, she does everything for us and doesn’t stop!” – Emma
We wish Lesley a happy Mother’s Day with her family.
