CouriersPlease has women in 62 per cent of its senior leadership roles, including the COO. This is a rise from the 50 per cent that represented the team in early 2022.

Chief operating officer Janine Zammit has at least 20-years driving success and sustainable growth for companies in the finance and logistics industries.

In her previous positions at Commonwealth Bank, Citibank and Prosegur, she led the companies through transformational change, innovation and expansion into new markets. In her Sydney-based role at CouriersPlease (CP), Zammit is leading large teams and leveraging technology to drive efficiency and create a seamless experience for customers and employees.

CouriersPlease encourages women in their careers

Zammit says the support and nurturing of women is inherent in CouriersPlease’s culture.

“A dedication to bringing and supporting women in the industry permeates across our company and starts at the top with our senior leadership team. Thanks to our hardworking staff and support from our CEOs, past and present, women are present in every facet of the company which, in turn, encourages other women to enter the industry and build their career.” 

HR boss promotes female workforce

Hannah Dunlop is the recently-appointed head of people and culture and at 28 the youngest senior leader at CP.

She has built a career in the transport and logistics industry, including more than two years at the company as a human resources business partner.

In her role, Dunlop leads a team of four and last year was instrumental in hiring women in key roles, supporting the company’s CEO to find key talent. 

Dunlop says “I’ve also helped initiate programs that have equally benefitted both men and women, including our graduate program in 2021.

“I was also involved in the launch of our company intranet, One Place, which contains valuable resources and information for our staff, including a Mental Health Hub, with key advice to keep employees happy and healthy.”

This year, Dunlop will also play a key role in implementing a learning management system, an online platform that will provide key information and advice to franchisees, encouraging them to invest in their own self-development and upskilling. 

One third of franchise territory managers are women

Female representation continues across CP operational roles. More than a third (36 per cent) of franchise territory managers are women.

Brisbane-based franchise territory manager Jasmin Ginn manages a fleet of 28 franchise partners and depot staff.

Ginn joined the company more than a decade ago as a customer service agent and took on the current role in 2017. Ginn was awarded Singapore Post Best Ambassador of the Year in 2019.
