Australian Eatwell has recently welcomed a new office manager to the team, Anu Hitihamillage and his family have moved from Melbourne to the country town of Donald in May of 2015 to take up the position and to assist with the smooth operation of the office.
After emigrating from Sri Lanka eight years ago, Anu and his wife have been living in Melbourne. After the recommendation from friends, Anu and his family made the move from the big city to the smaller community of Donald. Anu and his family have found that living and working in Donald is quite a different life style compared to Melbourne but so far has been really enjoying Eatwell and the supportive staff.
Anu completed his bachelors in 2011 and has an accounting background. His role at company includes supporting operations through maintaining office systems and supervising staff. It is good to add another friendly face to Australian Eatwell team.

My name is Sean and I am currently a student that is employed by Eatwell Australia.
I am a third year student at Deakin university Burwood campus, completing a Bachelor of Commerce in which I am majoring in accounting and finance. I have a keen passion for knowing how businesses run and most importantly how they continue to run efficiently. In the future I aspire to work for a major corporation one day and possibly start my own business.
I started my Marketing Cadetship with Eatwell at the start of 2014 and it will go for the entire year. I heard about the cadetship through various people in Donald and went through an interview process before I was offered the job. The work I am required to do involves promoting Eatwell products through platforms such as social media and the company’s website.
