After a 16-year career within the Education sector and undertaking classroom and leadership roles within Early Childhood Education & Care (ECEC), Primary, High School and College environs, Josh was ready for a change and sought new challenges. The Community sector has not disappointed!
Josh started working at CatholicCare in 2017 leading programs and services within the Youth & Adult Mental Health, Homelessness, Alcohol & Other Drugs, Family, and Justice sectors. Now, he’s leading the diligence activities and the bringing together of Marymead Child & Family Centre and CatholicCare Canberra & Goulburn to become one new entity – Marymead CatholicCare Canberra & Goulburn.
Very few other areas of work give you that diversity and mixing with people that you wouldn’t normally mix with, and just the opportunities that brings too. There’s a lot of opportunities for internal movement within the sector. You can find your niche and you can find your happy place and I think there are always different organisations that you can move to and learn from. And the sector looks after each other, there’s a real camaraderie in the community sector.
