JO Lawrence decided she wanted a change of lifestyle so she decided to move to Toowoomba.

Mrs Lawrence is the office manager at the popular city business Toowoomba Party Hire.

"I used to manage a hotel/motel business in Warwick," Mrs Lawrence said.

"I wanted a career change. I have only been in my current role for about two weeks.

"I guess it is as good as a holiday."

Mrs Lawrence said her family moved to Toowoomba because of the education institutions in the city.

"Ultimately, we moved here for a better lifestyle and our youngest son has just enrolled in a school here," she said.

"The people I work with are fantastic.

"They are a very productive team."

Mrs Lawrence said she enjoyed the customer service aspect of her new role.

"The contact and interaction with customers is very rewarding," she said.

"The business has been around for many, many, many years which shows stability.

"The business is very active in the community and the owners really care about people."

Mr Lawrence said he was offered her current position through Classic Recruitment on Margaret St.

"The people at Classic Recruitment were very helpful and very professional," she said.

"They really listen to your needs and what you are looking for in a job. They try their best to match you to a vacancy that is suitable to all parties."
