Staff Testimonials

Since having started my employment with Fairbridge I have moved from Housekeeper to Site Coordinator. At every step of my progression from new employee learning the daily business operations and organisational structure to coordinating a site I have felt well informed and supported by my co-workers and the upper management team. There is a strong emphasis on collaborative teamwork which I find very empowering. Fairbridge is a dynamic organisation which provides an excellent opportunity at any level to grow and progress in a number of fields.

Point Peron Camp Coordinator
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.
