WHEN Jenny Leuthi was told Lismore Palms Caravan Park was closing, she promised owner Geoff Smith she would stick with him until the end - such is her work ethic.

To show his gratitude for her seven-year service, Mr Smith put an advertisement in the Weekend Star recommending the office administration officer as an outstanding employee.

"I have had an outstanding employee who is extremely competent and loyal with diverse talents," Mr Smith wrote.

"She is very capable with office administration and IT and willing to complete any task.

"She is also great at foreseeing needs and problem solving, which makes her a valuable team member.

"I would like to highly recommend her to any prospective employer."

Mr Smith said placing the advertisement was the least he could do for such a valued and loyal employee.

"She was an outstanding employee who probably could have got herself a job because she's known for years that I've been selling," he said.

"But she promised to stay with me to the end.

"She's had opportunities and knocked them back; she's been ever so faithful."

After owning the Caravan Park for 32-years, Mr Smith said he knew how difficult it was to get good workers.

Ms Leuthi said she and her partner bought a house at East Lismore 18 months-ago and were settled in the region.

"I've been applying in the office administration field but I haven't had any luck yet," she said.

"I like working with computers, I'm no IT expert, but I'm very confident with computers."

From six applications, Ms Leuthi said she had revived three knock-backs, and was waiting to her from the other three employers.

"Ideally I'd like to find work in the Lismore area or not much further than Ballina or Casino," she said.

Ms Leuthi has her own transport and is willing to start as soon as possible.
