After completing a degree in journalism and public relations, I started working in marketing and corporate communication roles. I wanted to focus on content development and writing and I came across the opportunity to do just that, within the Department of the Premier and Cabinet.
A typical day involves writing content for a range of mediums – usually that’s online. I also work on short-term projects and ongoing publications, so it can vary from day-to-day.
I appreciate the flexibility. I recently returned from maternity leave and I was in a better position compared to friends, as far as the benefits and return to work timeframes. Coming back part-time has helped me juggle my care commitments without rushing into full-time work.
I like to help people communicate clearly and doing that on the government’s behalf gives me exposure to a range of topics and issues that include the relaying the state’s progress against the Premier’s priorities and initiatives.
Working in the public sector gives me better job security. I have the opportunity to potentially move within the sector and learn more about government operations.
I came to Adelaide because it was the best option for the terms of my visa at the time I was migrating, and I’m glad it worked out that way.
I like the pace Adelaide offers, and once I was settled, it suited the easy lifestyle I was looking for.
