Developing career opportunities in software
Mark Reside from Meadrisker Pty Ltd.
Where is your place of business?
Tell us about your business:
A software development business, developing web and mobile applications for business across Australia.
Why did you choose to be a part of GROW Gippsland?
Being a small business owner in Gippsland for over 25 years, as well as someone whom identifies as a person with a disability, I see GROW Gippsland as a fantastic initiative to expand opportunities within the Gippsland region. For people looking for work, existing employees and employers alike.
What are you doing to support local business?
Where possible, all purchases required for the company are sourced from local suppliers, and throughout my business career I have sourced and employed only local employees.
Why do you think it’s important to employ locally?
Without local jobs, there is no local economy. Employing someone locally directly puts that money you pay them back into sustaining other local businesses and keeps all of us employed.
Tell us about a time that you were proud to be a part of your business/organisation:
Every day I am proud of what I have achieved over the years in business, the people I have employed and assisted to grow their careers, and often move on to new and bigger positions. And the products and services I have been able to produce right here in Gippsland.
