Enjoy getting to know Jubilee scheduler Adele better in this staff profile.
Tell us about yourself: I have been with this phenomenal team for four months. I moved from Perth in 2016. Camping, karaoke, beach escapes with my family and fur baby, and a cheeky beer are how I like to spend weekends.
How would you describe your role? As a scheduler of services I organise chaos – it’s like an ever-changing daily Sudoku puzzle but there is always a solution.
What do you love about working at Jubilee? I love what I do. My role changes every day from coordinating support workers’ services and travel to suspending services for clients on holiday, as well as the day-to-day curve balls life throws us all. Jubilee is becoming more than a job – it’s becoming a lifelong career alongside people who are turning into friends. This is something I have been waiting for all my career.
What have you learned working for Jubilee? I have quickly understood that we are not just a service provider, we are a community – one that encourages independence, support and continuous improvement of services. Jubilee is at the forefront of enabling clients to be active at home and in the community.
What is something that makes you smile? The sound of rumbling thunder or the flash of lighting. Nephology is a hobby. Knowing a storm is coming can change my entire day.
Who would you swap places with for a day? On a super cell storm day I would like to swap places with Jeff from Higgins Storm Chasing. Higgins chases and captures images of some of the most stunning, dangerous and unpredictable storms. He documents them, assisting and using his knowledge of meteorology to answer questions and predictions about current or future storms for Queenslanders and Australians afar. The thrill of the chase would be outstanding. I would definitely swap places with him for a day.
