It’s almost the end of an era. The reality of wrapping up at the Griffith Centre for Coastal Management and cleaning out my not to messy desk after five and a half years feels cleansing already. I can already sense the clarity I’ll be able to indulge in and time freed up to focus on my next chapter that will take me to more beaches… I am dead shore it will.
I can remember my first day as if it was yesterday! I think the Centre slightly head hunted by passion and drive before I even knew I had passion for the coast and drive for community action. A voicemail turned into a morning tea, which evolved into a job offer and after that, since then I’ve done around 350+ community and school sessions. No wonder I can talk under sand about sand while I watch sand build beaches.
Wow, who knew my life would revolve around our living sandy museum? Not I.
So, tips for the passionate candidates who dream of working along some of Australia’s best and cleanest beaches with the finest community.
