Nigal is a Gurang Gurang and Arabana man from Bundaberg.

In 2008, Nigal started a Contract Management and Procurement course through Centrelink. Upon completion, he offered his services to CIT Yurauna Centre as a tutor. CIT saw his resume and offered him a position in the Student Services Hub assisting students with their enrolments etc. Nigal has a great way of communicating with people and has worked on and off with CIT for the past 14 years. He has also worked in a National Aboriginal Health Organisation (NATSIHWA) and at the Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs (OATSIA) in the ACT Government.

Whilst at OATSIA, Nigal was fortunate enough to work in different areas of the Community Services Directorate, as well as doing the OATSIA newsletter and gaining an understanding of the complexities of working in the community sector.


I like the satisfaction that I get from working with the community, like when a client or a student comes up and thanks you for the assistance that you’ve given them. That’s worth more than whatever they pay me. So, I really appreciate giving back to the community.
