Marnee Nugent, General Manager Risk and Compliance

I first started at Coles in 1996, working in the deli. At the time I was balancing working at Coles with studying at university. Coles ability to allow me to work flexibly (even way back then) meant that I could support myself while studying. Since that time, I have finished study, been admitted to practice law and have worked in a variety of roles across Coles, Kmart and Wesfarmers including safety, compliance and risk. I am fortunate enough to work in an amazing and dynamic business, where no two days are ever the same. I work for Coles because it’s a company that genuinely cares for people, both team members and customers. I still work flexibly, balancing family and work (and traffic) and am now lucky enough to be the sponsor for flexible working.

Coles is a company that provides great career opportunities and that is why I returned back to Coles in 2013 as the Human Resource Manager partnering with the Merchandise team on their People & Culture Program for just over 2 years. Since that time I have partnered Marketing, Finance, Property, Digital and numerous other Support Centre Functions on all their people agendas. I have lead some amazing teams and supporting their development to progress their careers has been very rewarding. In 2018 I was given the opportunity to be the Head of People & Culture Coles Express, Corporate Affairs and Online which is the best People & Culture role within Coles. I feel very privileged and honoured to be part of this team. The Coles Express team have an energy and passion that is infectious. I love being part of team where we support building great careers and the focus in transforming our business to meet our ever changing customer needs.

I joined Coles through the DC Operations Graduate Program in 2016 and was based out of our Perth Distribution Centre for two years. The program allowed me to gain some invaluable hands on operational and leadership experience as well as the chance to immerse myself in the Safety, Transport and People & Culture aspects of Supply Chain & Logistics. In my current role I look after how we range products and manage stock levels in all the Distribution Centres around the country. I get to work with an incredibly diverse and talented group of people, and there's never a shortage of support or new things to learn.
