Meet Kirsten! Kirsten started working at Alliance Community in 2017 after 5 years living in the UK. Prior to this, she worked at our sister agency RNS Nursing since 2006!
As Senior Recruitment Consultant for Alliance Community in South East Queensland, Kirsten is based in the Brisbane office but also works across the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast.
“I began with the organisation straight out of school and have worked in several areas of the business including coordination, scheduling, recruitment and admin!
I am now responsible for recruiting & on-boarding Support Stars and registered staff who work with our clients in their homes. I also ensure that quality standards are upheld by maintaining compliance across our staffing pool. I love the job and my team!
My fondest memories at Alliance Community have always involved when the team have rallied together and really pushed to achieve a positive outcome for one of our clients. This happens all the time and I’m really proud to be a part of that.
I love knowing that what we’re doing is helping people in the community to achieve their goals and live their best life.
I think Alliance Community is really unique because we have a varied range of staff, from personal care workers, to registered and clinical nurses. This means that our client base is also hugely varied. We have unique opportunities presented to us all the time and because we are national yet operate as such a tight knit team, we all collaborate really well to achieve the best possible outcome.”
One piece of advice Kirsten would give to someone interested in becoming a Support Worker?
“Come into it with a passion for helping others achieve their goals – that’s what it’s all about!”
