Content Editor

Department of the Premier and Cabinet

How did you get to where you are today?

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.

What does an average day look like?

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.

What do you love about your job?

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.

Why do you do what you do?

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.

What do you see are some of the benefits of working in the public sector?

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.

Why have you chosen to work in South Australia?

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.
