"Working for something that’s far bigger than yourself—that’s a big part of it … but I wouldn’t still be at Compassion six years later if it wasn’t for our team. We value, invest in and stretch each other constantly. I moved from Melbourne to Newcastle and I’ve fallen in love with it! The quick commute and endless coffee options have definitely kept me here, and it’s been easy to connect with people and build up our community."

"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."
