“Since I started working at Compassion six years ago I have been able to develop my skills and expertise.

“Working at Compassion has given me the opportunity to combine my passion for the church with the mission of seeing children released from poverty. I love that I get to work within a great team and connect with local churches in Queensland helping them to do mission well in a partnership with Compassion.

"Compassion has given me the opportunity to combine my passion, experience and skills in pursuit of a cause I feel incredibly moved by—changing children’s lives. We moved from Brisbane to Newcastle to join Compassion, and we love the more relaxed vibe. I think Newy is a bit of a well-kept secret. It gives you a good work-life balance; it’s close to Sydney and just a one-hour flight back to Brissie."
“Moving from Korea to Australia was a big decision for me, shifting from my career as a banker to a Relationship Manager at Compassion. However, it’s been a life-changing experience. It brings me great joy every day to see children released from poverty in Jesus’ name. It was a delight to discover that Compassion began its ministry in Korea. Because of this, I consider it a privilege to introduce Compassion to Korean churches in Sydney.”

“I was able to see the work on the field. We watched child development centres operating and visited the homes of children who had discovered hope in the face of intolerable hardship. It helped me to better understand the profound importance of our work. The bonus is that I collaborate with talented people. I count it a wonderful privilege to work for Compassion Australia.”
