Humans of Schiavello


Samara Cook

Office Secretary / Bid Coordinator

What did you want to be when you were young?

I honestly don’t think I wanted to be anything, but I was always drawing and sewing and making things out of paper, my dad now says I should have gone into architectural model making…. next life!

What do you love most about working at Schiavello?

I like the historical background of the company (and my carpark).

Project you’re most proud of?

I designed and created an A1 poster with the estimating team which helped win a $16M job with KPMG.

People are surprised that I…

speak Spanish, and spend my spare time painting portraits.

What are you known for around the office?

Knowing how to fix the printer (rolls eyes).

Most used emoji/s?

😉 😘

I unwind by..

lying in bed as long as possible, and watching funny animal videos (my hiking photo is definitely a one-off!).

My guilty pleasure is…

eating cake and pastries. I do not have the power to say no, so I avoid bakeries where possible.

A quote you live by / personal motto

Eat safe, always use condiments.
