What is his role/position at Real Aussie Group?

Accounts/Office Manager

Tyson is one of the longest serving staff members at Real Aussie with 13 years of wisdom and experience in the bank (he happens to be a numbers guy who we know also appreciates a good pun). Over the last few years he has stepped up to take on the role of Office Manager, helping to ensure that things run smoothly and contribute to the excellent workplace culture. He is always the one to organise takeaway for the odd Friday lunch. He also happens to be the person the staff calls on for any IT issues. Just make sure you’ve tried turning it on and off again first.
