Executive General Manager, Employment and Training
“For me, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing the job seekers we work with change their lives and feel proud of their achievements. I joined MatchWorks in 2016 after many years of working at the frontline of operations. I led teams within Disability Employment Services and Job Services Australia, before spending six years in London making a difference to lives of people in the peak of the global financial crisis. I believe everyone deserves a chance to work – entrusting my team to always do the best by our job seekers is at the heart of my leadership. At MatchWorks, we are also fortunate to work alongside thousands of employers each year and help them create work cultures where diversity is celebrated.”
General Manager, Disability Employment Services
“My focus is guiding the team to always have the best interests of people with disabilities top of mind and how we are changing lives. I have 25 years of experience in the sector and am a strong advocate for people with disabilities exercising their rights, having choice and control over their services and experiencing a great customer experience. At the core of my work is trust in my team, investment in staff development to be the best they can be, and valuing ongoing collaboration with job seekers, employers and industry leaders who can influence positive change to the lives of people with disabilities.”
General Manager, jobactive
“At MatchWorks, we’re a village and job seekers often need a village of support to achieve lasting employment. Every day, our team comes together to make a difference – to ourselves, to each other and to people in our local communities. I am a strong advocate for working mums and have been given so many opportunities in my career. I am proud to be able to pay it forward and assist others in finding their own pathways to employment.“
General Manager, Employer Services
“For me, solving problems, helping others and building relationships is incredibly rewarding. Working in the Employment and Training sector for over 14 years across 3 countries has allowed me the opportunity to do this every day. It has also given me first-hand experience of how important diversity and inclusion is for organisations to be successful.
Recruiting staff no longer has to be a costly exercise. My role helps organisations develop candidate attraction strategies to help them build a diverse workforce with no or low cost. Tailored pre-employment training is often an integral part of the process. So too is cultural and disability awareness training to build employer understanding and tolerance in the workplace.”
General Manager, Service Development and Projects
“For the past 20 years I have specialised in shaping and delivering innovative, inclusive employment programs that give participants the confidence and skills to move forward and find the right employment opportunities.
Our projects and initiatives include providing tailored support to job seekers from all backgrounds, ages and abilities including youth, mature age, Indigenous, Culturally And Linguistically Diverse backgrounds and people with disabilities.
My work has a national reach and our projects team is proud to have positive impact on so many lives. Our team is currently trialling a fresh and engaging model which is creating a sense of belonging and community under the Government’s National Employment Services Trial in South Australia to be rolled out nationally in 2022.“
General Manager, Operations, Employment and Training
“Since joining MatchWorks in the year 2000, I have advanced into the leadership team and been an integral part of our expansion across six states of Australia. I am passionate about problem-solving and take pride in guiding my team to achieve their goals. Supporting job seekers and employers to forge stronger connections and workplaces is key to our work. As General Manager of Operations, I am also dedicated to creating strong links and activities across the genU business to support people to achieve their aspirations.”
General Manager, Business Services
“Ensuring every job seeker gets the support, mentoring and assistance to meet their individual needs and continuously improving our services are key focus areas of my work. I started in the business as an Employment Consultant 10 years ago before moving into Site Management to help change the lives of the job seekers we worked with. My current role ensures we keep delivering better outcomes as a business and maintain a firm focus on positively impacting our local communities. I am passionate about developing staff to be their best and am inspired by the idea that our work can unearth a spark of brilliance in everyone.”
