I started at Public Outreach after finishing university as a temporary Data Entry officer. It was only supposed to be a few months work whilst I figured out where my degree would take me. Fast forward four years and I'm now the National Administrative Services Manager. There is really no place like Public Outreach to work - I hear the word 'culture' bandied around often, but the work culture here is second to none, not to mention the sheer dedication I've seen to the company and our charities. My work colleagues have become some of my closest friends and I couldn't imagine my life without them!
Fun fact: My go-to background noise movie is any of the Lord Of The Rings trilogy. So much so that I can sit there and quote it almost verbatim.
Data and Resource Manager (POP)
I started at PO on Halloween 2013 (ooohhh spooky!) as a phone fundraiser, since then I have been involved in many different departments of PO. Everything from donor care to administration, ending as the Data and Resource Manager! Three and a half years later and I am in a job I love at a company that has amazing values and people! Public Outreach has given me many opportunities that I would not have gained anywhere else and they've helped me decide my career. I cannot imagine working anywhere but here: the friends I have made here I know are going to be friends for life!
Fun Fact: My life motto is 'chin up princess or the crown slips'.
Data and Resource Manager (F2F)
I began my career at Public Outreach in June 2013 as Melbourne's Fundraising Support Officer, under the impression that the job would be temporary until I decided to go back to uni. In March 2014 I was given the opportunity to move into the wonderful world of data, and from there I've worked my way up to Data and Resource Manager. I am immensely grateful for the education and opportunities provided to me by Public Outreach, as well as being in an office dominated by amazing and inspiring women!
Fun fact: When I was a kid I featured in a Clark Rubber ad and I have performed as a dancer in the Moomba Parade multiple times!
Client Services Account Manager
I've had the pleasure on working with humanitarian and environmental non-profits since moving to Japan in 2012. Having spent years working on fundraising and awareness campaigns since, I now have the distinct honour of working for multiple campaigns at once at Public Outreach here in Australia. Being able to work with a number of charities alongside equally passionate colleagues makes every day here a great one. As Client Services Account Manager, it's a privilege to split my time between fantastic charities and the superb people here who make great things happen for them.
Fun fact: I had a competition with some gentlemen at the top of Mount Fuji for who could handle the cold without a top on, in below-zero temperatures, the longest. They won when they took things up a notch by wearing only swimming briefs, flippers and a snorkel - on a mountain peak. I have no idea why they had snorkels. I still regret not bringing my roller blades and a crash helmet to one-up them!
