Barb Raymond Testimonial
As an Executive Assistant, my role is varied and extremely rewarding. I joined Community Living Australia in 2012 as part of the Reception and Administration team, and have thoroughly enjoyed contributing to an organisation dedicated to provided quality support and service delivery to people living with disabilities in regional South Australia.
I became interested in working in Disability services and for Community Living Australia because I could see the difference that the organisation makes to people with disabilities, not just locally but in the wider community. I was also attracted to the variety of work and the opportunity to be hands on across a variety of teams.
I enjoy working at Community Living Australia because of the commitment and vision of the people I work with, the interaction I have with our clients, the challenges of working within the sector and knowing that I can be instrumental in supporting our organisation put processes in place that work with these challenges and make a difference.
The staff in our organisation are always made to feel valued through training and career progression opportunities. There is a strong sense of commitment and enthusiasm within the management team, as well as great pride, trust and a team approach throughout the organisation.
I love that I have the ability to work within my own community in a stable, yet constantly progressing role. I get to make a difference by supporting our organisation to create communities where people with disabilities are valued and have greater access to opportunities and services.
Working for Community Living Australia gives you the opportunity to work within a not-for-profit organisation that is forward-thinking, really cares about making a difference, is honest in their dealings and has a lot of integrity in what they do.
