"I am fortunate to come into work every day and contribute to something I am passionate about, protecting Australia’s precious environment and our primary industries. I enjoy the variety of work, the people and the challenges we encounter at the Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF). I continue to learn and grow both personally and professionally. Since joining DAFF, I have had the privilege to work across a range of areas including policy, compliance, biosecurity and regulation. As a scientist who joined the public service mid-way through my career, I can highly recommend DAFF for those who are looking for a rewarding career in a supportive and inclusive environment."
