What do you love most about APRA AMCOS?

APRA AMCOS is a workplace committed to diversity, inclusion and is genuinely invested in the success and wellbeing of all of its staff. You can sense the passion and enthusiasm of everyone who works here, and it’s exciting to work in an environment that actively fosters this spirit.

What makes you happy at work?

Delivering career-changing initiatives and opportunities to Australian songwriters and musicians has to be some of the most rewarding work in my career to date. Spending time with a team of individuals so committed to working with the Australian music community is consistently energising.

How has APRA AMCOS shaped your career?

On a daily basis APRA AMCOS continues to provide new experiences that challenge and provide growth, both professionally and personally. The opportunity to forge your own career pathways are supported – and often guided – by the management teams, and I’ve developed a real sense of a long-term career with APRA AMCOS.

What was your main reason for wanting to join APRA AMCOS?

I could not turn up the opportunity to work in a role that simultaneously valued and further developed my skillsets, particularly within an organisation dedicated to working and advocating for the Australian music community.
