Staff Testimonials

Fairbridge is a dynamic employer that encompasses several industries, including hospitality, education, and tourism. Over the past three years, I have been part of the Fairbridge WA team, starting as a site coordinator and advancing to the role of reservations and guest relations.

Guest Relations & Camp Reservations
Fairbridge Village is such a beautiful unique place steeped in history and such a delight to walk around, interact with members of the public and observe school groups creating lifelong memories. As a new family to Australia in 2012, Fairbridge as an employer has allowed my role to grow with my family. Commencing part time employment in 2013 whilst my daughter attended a new primary school in a new country, Fairbridge offered me school hours, something I had never experienced previously, this was the perfect work life balance for our family. Fairbridge quickly identified my potential, providing me with many opportunities within the organisation, thus allowing me to grow with it. During this journey, I have completed numerous professional development sessions, worked within inspirational teams, grown as an individual and have met some incredible people along the way.
Kim Tantrum
Business Services Manager
Since taking over Fairbridge Catering in October 2018, I faced a significant challenge. Coming from roles in hospitality training and event catering, I aimed to rebuild the team with passionate staff and transition to fresh food preparation. I revamped the main kitchen and designed ComEd, along with 6 new camps, by the 2019 school term. Standardizing menus across all sites improved efficiency and cost management. I also revamped menus for various occasions and focused on securing repeat bookings. Introducing offsite catering expanded our reach, starting with local aged care villages and Scouts WA, which led to further opportunities. The goal is to continue growing and innovating in the future.
