Hear from our team

Working for Uniting.

For 25 years, Kate Janetzki enjoyed her career in the travel industry. When COVID-19 hit and the travel industry was turned upside down, her employer was forced to close the office.

“I absolutely love it. It is really the best thing that has ever happened to me, the thing I love the most is making a difference."

Di Fisher knew from a young age that working for Uniting was her calling. After meeting Uniting (then known as Kilmany Family Care) staff as a 16-year-old student doing work experience at the local Bairnsdale hospital, Di made a decision that would shape the course of her life.

It’s exciting to be part of that change and see the growth in our programs and services here in Gippsland.”

Uniting in Gippsland

Jannine had longed to leave the hustle and bustle of Melbourne behind. So earlier this year, Jannine and her husband packed up and relocated to Gippsland. After purchasing a home with acreage, the couple are “absolutely loving” their tree change.

“(The move) has been a big help for our mental health. We are much more relaxed. It’s been exciting to meet and work with new people and understand the community connections they have."

Uniting in Gippsland

Uniting has been Leeann’s second home for over 22 years.

“I’ve had lots of different roles from working in homelessness and family violence services to managing our reception team in Sale. That’s what I really love about Uniting – the diversity of work it has offered me."
