    I took my first step into the disability industry by taking on my Certificate III in Individualised Support at TAFE. I then needed to complete my placement hours, which St Jude's kindly agreed to take me on board for. After completing my placement, I was then offered a Support Worker role within St Jude's which I was very grateful for. After a year of thoroughly enjoying my role supporting our amazing clients, I then applied for a Coordinator position within St Jude's at my local office. I was kindly given a chance and thoroughly enjoyed every step of learning this new role. Much to my excitement, I was given the opportunity to progress my career in the role of Manager of Home and Community.

    After finishing my course in the Diploma of Community Services, I started at St Jude's Disability Services in 2017 as a home and community support worker.  I really enjoyed working with people with disabilities to achieve their NDIS and personal goals.  In 2021 I began working in the office as a Service Coordinator.  St Jude's is very supportive and it's so rewarding being in a career where I feel I am making a difference - coordinating support services for people and knowing each team member endeavours to continuously provide best quality services. My favourite memories are from assisting participants with exciting meaningful activities in the community, as well as now seeing the great progress our people  make toward achieving goals and building their own skills and experiences.

    I joined the St. Jude's team as a Recruitment Consultant in 2021. There have been many highs in my role, including placing over 400 support workers across business over a 16-month period, being supported by an efficient Manager and ambitious Recruitment team, and winning the Director's Award at the Corporate Christmas party. The role has also presented challenges, however, knowing that I had the support of my team was comforting. In 2023, I had the opportunity to transition into a different role, specialising in employee engagement and compliance. The cohesion in the People and Culture team enabled this transition to be as seamless as possible. It's been a rewarding and exhilarating experience working at St. Jude's and being a part of the growth and expansion of the business.

    I first joined St. Jude's as a part-time support worker while studying. I had been looking to gain a practical insight into the healthcare industry and was lucky to be offered a placement. During this time, my team were very encouraging, and both my supervisor and manager were incredibly supportive. By working with clients out in the community I gained invaluable experience and an in-depth understanding of the NDIS that I would never have learned in school. After completing my studies, I was able to secure a position as coordinator at St. Jude's. Working and studying at St. Jude's, I have gained knowledge and experience while working in an inclusive, multicultural environment. I am looking forward to expanding my skill set further and growing within the company.
