“I love working at Mantel Group because I am surrounded by intelligent, genuine and interesting people.”

Chris TonnaDelivery Lead Data and Analytics at CMD Solutions

I love working at Mantel Group because I am surrounded by intelligent, genuine and interesting people. I have had the pleasure of meeting and working alongside so many of our group. Whether it be as part of a bid team, or a consultant to work on a CMD project from another brand, I am always impressed at how keen everyone is to support each other and how strong our work ethic is towards each other and our clients. It makes what I do so much easier. I really love the team side of working at Mantel Group.

I’m most excited about my future at Mantel Group for a number of great reasons. Firstly, I have enormous trust and respect in our leadership team both at business and group level. They empower me to do the things I am passionate about with confidence. Secondly, I feel that I can personally contribute to Mantel’s growth because I have a voice and it is heard. Finally, and more personally, I really enjoy mentoring people, building strong teams and watching personal growth in my teams. CMD and Mantel have given me the opportunity to build a team that can achieve amazing things no matter what problem a client has. This brings me great satisfaction personally and professionally. 

I am able to be my best self at work because I can do the things I am good at and that happens to be the reason I was hired – which works well! This comes from the people, the company and our principles really support everything I believe in more than anything else. I spent years working in very large, multinational companies and the bit they all get wrong; is culture. There is a lack of trust and empowerment given to employees and creativity and growth is stifled. We are the opposite of that and as an ‘ideas man’(self-proclaimed), I like to challenge thinking at times and pursue ideas which our agile nature and principle led business actually supports. This lets me be confident to raise ideas and drives me to get out of bed and work everyday. I love what we do and how we do it.

“The principle that resonates most for me is “Love What You Do & Be Awesome At It”. This one is my favourite because it serves as a reminder that if you aren’t enjoying what you are doing, it’s important to shift and find what makes you excited.”

My experience at Mantel has been unique because I’ve been given the reins to explore my capabilities and interests, and help shape programs and opportunities within Mantel Group. My highlight has been my involvement in expanding the Mantel Group internship program, which focuses on facilitating support to increase diversity in technology. I had the opportunity to help expand the program and include a Cloud Computing stream. I have absolutely loved mentoring and supporting interns in the stream and have been excited to see their growth. I feel really lucky to be a part of a company that demonstrates the importance of not only being a great engineer, but also continuously striving to make a positive impact.

The principle that resonates most for me is “Love What You Do & Be Awesome At It”. This one is my favourite because it serves as a reminder that if you aren’t enjoying what you are doing, it’s important to shift and find what makes you excited. I established very early on at Mantel Group that a huge driver for me was being able to increase gender diversity in more specialised sectors of technology. As a Cloud Engineer who loves her job, her company and wants to continue to thrive, I wanted to encourage underrepresented genders in tech to explore and skill up in cloud computing. We started an initiative at Mantel Group called Cloud Curious – a group for women and non-binaries hosting tutorials, bootcamps and talks relating to cloud computing – and encouraging more people to be cloud curious. I love engineering and I work hard to be great at it, but I also have the opportunity to do so much more with Mantel Group, and be awesome at that too.

I’m grateful to be a part of Mantel Group because I feel supported by and important to the team. I think we have some of the best culture I’ve ever seen, where we support one another, are consistently “In it Together” and we don’t establish hierarchies based on experience or seniority, we are equals and any one of us can do amazing things. I love sitting with our CEO Simon Poulton and having conversations on what our nicknames should be (he coined me Zolo, by the way) or asking for help from our CTO Troy Bebee, a Kasna team member or anyone across all of Mantel Group – and them wanting and willing to help when I call, because they know I’ll do the same for them when they need. It’s an incredible company and I will always be grateful to Mantel for facilitating such an awesome environment.

“I love working at Mantel Group because I actually have a work-life-balance. I have previously worked at companies that claimed to foster a work-life-balance, but the actual employee experience was the opposite.”

I love working at Mantel Group because I actually have a work-life-balance. I have previously worked at companies that claimed to foster a work-life-balance, but the actual employee experience was the opposite. Since starting at Mantel, I have been able to get back into my old hobbies such as playing music and surfing because I have time after work and on weekends. Mantel walks-the-walk when it comes to things like flexible working hours, generous leave entitlements and not having to be ‘online’ all the time.

My experience at Mantel has been unique as this was my first ever role in tech. I was rather hesitant starting at Mantel, and had a solid bout of ‘imposter syndrome’ in the first week or two. But I soon realised that, not only was Mantel full of people from many different backgrounds, I could in fact offer a fresh perspective on problems. Additionally, Mantel provides the time and budget for its people to skill-up autonomously, allowing us to fill our own knowledge gaps as opposed to generic, company-wide training.  

The principle that resonates most for me is “Make Good Choices”. I see this as such a transparent demonstration of trust in our people. We don’t need 100-page policy documents that detail how we should act and decide in each situation. At first I found this confronting, as my previous employer required most decisions to go through various levels of management. But being able to make day-to-day calls and (often important) decisions myself without always “checking with the boss” has been refreshing and makes us more trusting and productive as a team.

“All in all, I enjoy working with Mantel Group because of the amazing workforce, fantastic culture, flexible environment and the learning opportunities it offers.”

Akshay SantoshSenior Business Analyst at DigIO

Mantel Group is definitely an organisation that tops the list of my favourite workplaces – and this is because it’s a company that has always had its people’s best interests as the top priority. Apart from that, it’s the people that make Mantel such an aspiring place to work at. Working with such a talented and inspirational bunch of colleagues has always motivated me to give back more and has driven me to be my best. During these unprecedented times with COVID-19, we have proved more than ever that all of us are ‘In it together’.

During my conversations regarding ‘My Deal’, it became very obvious to me that these initiatives weren’t put in place to just tick a box. There were uncertainties in my personal situation; but Mantel was extremely accommodating by allowing me to keep the deal in my back pocket, so that I could make use of it at the right time and think through how I get the most value out of it. This initiative is again a reflection of how Mantel cares for each and every one of us.

All in all, I enjoy working with Mantel Group because of the amazing workforce, fantastic culture, flexible environment and the learning opportunities it offers.

“I am able to be my best self at work because of the support I receive, the space that I am given to learn new skills as well as being able to tackle problems innovatively - and the trust that I have to take on responsibility with my maximum capability.”

Xin LiangMachine Learning Engineer at Eliiza

There are three main reasons why I love working at Mantel Group. Firstly, I feel very supported by everyone surrounding me, from the support given on a daily basis by co-workers on both work and non-work related matters, to the support from a management level to meet my needs as much as possible. Secondly, I love the fact that everyone at work is very eager to learn new knowledge, whether it’s in their own domains or cross-domains. Most importantly, I feel like I’m challenged by interesting problems in many aspects, which encourages myself to learn more and gives me satisfaction to provide solutions. I am able to be my best self at work because of the support I receive, the space that I am given to learn new skills as well as being able to tackle problems innovatively – and the trust that I have to take on responsibility with my maximum capability. This encouragement of improving myself in all aspects and thriving to be a better version of myself makes my experience at Mantel very unique.

“When I first read our principles I had to read them twice because I couldn’t believe that an organisation would care that much about an employee’s experience with them. It was a refreshing change, and made me even more eager to start in my role at Mantel!”

Paige CamdenBDM at Kasna

The principle that resonates most for me is ‘Love what you do and be awesome at it’. When I first read our principles I had to read them twice because I couldn’t believe that an organisation would care that much about an employee’s experience with them. It was a refreshing change, and made me even more eager to start in my role at Mantel! Everyday I try to bring my best self to my role – I know there is a correlation between loving your job and being good at your job! It’s important to me to love what I do, but to also exceed expectations in my role and be truly ‘awesome’ at it! 

I’m grateful to be part of Mantel Group because I am lucky to work for this organisation for a couple of reasons – the most obvious being the amazing people that I work alongside, they make work fun! But there is more than just fun at work, and luckily for me I was given the opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone and try something different. I started my Mantelorian journey in July 2019 within our Talent Acquisition team and had the opportunity to partner with both Kasna and CMD to help grow their teams in Melbourne. It was a role I loved and we managed to build and grow the awesome teams we have now; however I knew that I needed more of a challenge in the long run. Luckily for me our Strategy & Execution team were wholly supportive of me making a move, and after a few conversations with Kasna’s CEO Simon, it was agreed that I would join Kasna in a Client Engagement/BD role. Starting a new role through COVID has been on the tough side, but the business has been incredibly supportive of me and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to have around me!

I am able to be my best self at work because Mantel Group prides itself on being a principle based organisation with the flexibility to allow its employees to be autonomous and work in a way that suits them. With this there does come a level of trust and openness expected to allow this to work for everyone! One of things I’ve found is that as long as you Communicate Directly, Mantel will support you the best they can. Personally, I’ve found it’s ok to not always be your ‘best self’ at work, because that’s not always possible. Everyone has bad days or difficult moments, but what I have found is that the support Mantel offers during those periods is exemplary. Being your best self, means to me, that you try your hardest at work and you’re comfortable being ‘yourself’ with your colleagues; I have felt accepted by my team and leadership on my best days and my worst days too. There’s no judgement or ‘tough love’, more so offers of help and solutions to problems. This is the best way to support colleagues to make sure they have more of their best days at work!
