I was looking for work within the government when someone I knew suggested I apply for a traineeship through Jobs4Youth. During my traineeship, I managed to secure a position in the Chief Executive’s Office where I completed my training that included a Certificate III in Government. Upon completion, I have managed to secure more senior roles including my current role as Senior Branch Support Officer.
Every day is different in my role, I work in a large team that supports the whole department. My branch supports the department in matters of Work Health and Safety, Human Resources and Development. One of my main tasks is coordinating our trainee and graduate program.
I love working in a department that is passionate and proactive about what they do. Because of this, I see people come to work eager and excited about coming to work.
I work in a very positive team where people who love coming to work surround you. I enjoy helping people. Working for the public sector, I get to see how the government is doing this on a daily basis.
The public sector is a very forward-thinking workplace. As we are all working under One Government, it makes it a simpler process to act in different roles or departments, gaining valuable knowledge and experience to help you further progress your career.
I have lived in South Australia all my life. After numerous trips and holidays to other states and countries, I still have not found a better place to be than SA.
