My job is about:
My team helps the department facilitate the collection of Australian schools data to better empower decision making from both a policy and funding perspective. Another major role we play is in assisting external stakeholders by providing data to them on request. The team has a very diverse skill set to ensure that everything from the number crunching, to the presentation and reporting of our findings is the best it can be which makes it an excellent opportunity for graduates of all backgrounds.
The coolest thing about my job is:
Seeing the range of challenges faced by schools all around the country and knowing my work has the potential to help them.
A challenge I have experienced in my work is:
Aside from dealing with the occasional global pandemic or regional school burning down, going from my degree where the answers were generally black and white to a role where you have to constantly critique your own solutions to problems to ensure every possibility has been considered is a daily challenge I embrace.
