The boss (he thinks)
Stefan has worked and travelled all over the globe. From kayak instructor to dish pig, delivery driver to farm hand. A Jack of all trades, master of none. Well....... he is a qualified physio- but that involves sitting in a little room all day.
After settling in Australia 5 years ago he ended up working in disability care but realised quickly there was lots of potential being wasted. Inspired by shows as
' Employable Me' and the successful 'Brownies & Downies' franchise based in the Netherlands he decided to take a gamble and start Scoop21.
With the business he wants to help people find meaningful work and have a laugh & build friendships at the same time. He enjoys cooking, tinkering in his shed, lifting others' spirits and playing with his dog Ziggy.
The real boss
Jessee is Stefans partner and her fathers side of the family hails from the Yackandandah region. She grew up at her parents' cherry orchard & vineyard in Eldorado. Still managing the yearly cherry harvest with Stefan and a team of friends
Jess is a graphic designer by trade and works together with her sister from their design studio in neighbouring Beechworth. You will see her frequently at the Eldorado Road cellar door as well.
Jess has a heart of gold and a 'can do ' attitude. She has lost her wallet, keys and phone more often than you had hot dinners- but always manages to keep her head cool and make things work out. Without her support and assistance there would be no SCOOP 21 !
In her free time she likes reading, gardening and has an interest in sustainable design and fashion.
Master of the mop
Nik has been working at Purple Chicken in Albury and has since landed his first real job with us. Nik is friendly, likes to keep things tidy and is always on time. In his free time he likes to play video games and help other people.
Brooke lives on a farm in Wooraagee and works with us on Wednesday. She is down to earth like no other and likes to select the music we play in the shop.
When she has time off she likes to look after animals on the farm. Her favourite flavour ice cream is blackberry.
Keegan is very friendly and loves a chat, she lives in Leneva with her dad Dave and her mum Pam, two dogs some cows and several chooks. Whenever she's not rocking the party at Scoop21 she does housework for her mum. Her favourite band is the Rolling Stones- you're hired!
George is a local 15 year old and this is his very first job. He goes to Beechworth secondary college and helps us out on Sunday mornings. He is quick, always looking for a job to do and works very methodically. His favourite ice cream is ''definitely chocolate'' he likes to go camping with his dad and play video games.
