We love your work! Steve Heather granted RCSA’s Life Fellowship
RCSA’s most distinguished honour, Life Fellowship, has been awarded to Steve Heather, Managing Director of Mining People International, in a special ceremony last week.
RCSA lauded Steve’s commitment and professionalism when he received the award at the RCSA event in Perth last Thursday (9 December).
Described as a ‘legend’ on the night, Steve was taken aback by the prestigious accolade.
Life Fellowship is the most distinguished honour the industry bestows upon an individual who has shown outstanding and sustained service to the peak industry body.
Steve’s contributions to the industry include chairing the Western Australia Regional Council and sitting on the RCSA Board of Directors for 10 years acting as its Finance Director and Vice President.
RCSA CEO Charles Cameron congratulated Steve on his befitting recognition.
“This honour is about recognising enormous support to the recruitment and staffing industry, through RCSA membership, through professionalism and commitment and Steve embodies that wholeheartedly,” Charles said.
“I thank him for his support, intelligence and commercial nous. He is a friend to RCSA and all of us and we are indebted for his service and dedication. Steve, we love your work.”
At the recruitment community’s event in Perth, Steve said he was passionate about the industry and particularly proud of what it has been able to achieve of late.
“I am very honoured to receive this award,” Steve said.
“I have loved what we have done in the last two to three years where we’ve supported industry defences to various class actions, and lobbied government; and I am grateful to have been part of those committees that have driven that,” Steve said.
“Thanks to incredible teamwork, our advocacy work saw some successful outcomes that have been really, really important to the industry. If the result had gone the other way, we would have faced massive threats to the industry.
“I am also pleased to have participated in supporting initiatives to broaden the RCSA’s revenue base, to enable the provision of better services for members. Collectively, the work that has transpired under the leadership of Charles Cameron has been remarkable and I have thoroughly enjoyed serving under a number of terrific presidents at RCSA including current president, Nina Mapson Bone.
“Our industry is an essential part of the way work is going to build into the future and we have really, really got to get behind it - together with the amazing RCSA leaders.”
