I had worked in many different units and locations for the Department for Education and found that its a department with good values and tries its best to value employees. With any department they are bouned to restrictions/legislation and are not to be compared with NGOs. I have worked with a variety of people from different cultures and found that the department values all equally and there is little to no discrimination
A typical day at work is busy with lots of challenges and change lots of staff to manage. We have the opportunity to make a positive impact on our clients lives. They rely on us for the right administration and help. What I have learned is that change is a given. We must all work together to make a difference knowing that we all play an important part in the bigger picture. Understand your staff needs and how to inspire them to become the best they can be. A wave starts with a small ripple. Diversity and inclusiveness is integral to any workplace. Diversity is here, Inclusion is a choice. Culture of my workplace is friendly, respectful and caring. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you are helping clients through what is probably the most difficult time in their lives. There is a significant difference in providing a service to a client and connecting with the client. Through connection, you truly understand the clients needs and deliver those with empathy and passion.
Unfortunately there is more political manipulation with senior public servants than politicians . We had good people with solid business experience within the department for Trade, Tourism and Investment most of whom have been made redundant. Political agendas drive what should be outcomes focused for the state. Never again!
International travel, built a fantastic network globally
Hypocrisy at the highest level, logic does not apply to sound business decisions
Great place to work ,have very good safe work practices,never gets boring.Some days working in heavy traffic can get a bit tricky.All the machine operators ie contract backhoes and bobcats& tip trucks are great blokes to work with they know there stuff and always prepared to help.The only problem with the place is they dont offer permanent positions so no job security and the way govt is heading with privatising who knows what's going to happen Overall I learned a bit about bitumen and concrete work gained some skill on a roller and tip truck and gained some knowledge on underground services and setting up of light based.and pit and pipe work.
Night shift pays well
No job security
Work at Government house was on a casual basis for functions. This involved attending for up to four hours for tray service and the provision of beverages as required. The service required you to be very aware of the clients requirements and manage service so that ALL the clients were provided with food & drinks. Working as a team we were able to provide service in a promptly & efficiently. As a casual the tasks were often different so balancing the job could prove difficult. Enjoyed meeting new people at every engagement.
