“It’s a community within itself”
According to Xin-Fang Yu, it’s the work environment that makes a career at the University of Melbourne worthwhile. “First of all, it is a beautiful campus. While I was completing my Bachelor of Arts/ Science here, I often used to walk through the gardens to unwind.  These days I still do the same, the only difference is that now I’m a staff member.”When Xin-Fang started in her role as an Analyst in the Finance and Planning department, she had very little technical knowledge.  Thanks to the support of her manager and colleagues she was given the support she needed to grow into the role. “My team are very enthusiastic and helpful, often I am learning without even realising it. I’ve developed my skills in communication and critical analysis immensely.  Plus the work I do – internal reporting, monitoring budgets, developing performance metrics – allows me to constantly learn more about the University.”

One of the other benefits Xin-Fang cites as being crucial to her decision to pursue a career at the University of Melbourne was the prospect of further studies. “I’m currently doing my Master of International Business, and it is very convenient to be working and studying on campus”.

“It feels like home”
Siobhan Birch knew she wanted to work at the University of Melbourne as soon as she stepped onto campus. “I remember the first day I came to Uni to start my Arts degree. Immediately it felt like a familiar space – a space where there is always something lively happening. I felt at home”. As an indigenous employee, Siobhan discovered a community within the Faculty of Arts and within the University as a whole to be involved in. In recent times she has even represented the faculty as a member of the Arts Indigenous Framework Committee. Over the past four and a half years she has worked in a variety of Human Resources roles and is now an HR Consultant. To get to this point, Siobhan was able to undertake a variety of professional development opportunities which, she says, “not only helped me with my role, but have also been valuable for my personal growth. The University is so large that there are opportunities for innovation and diversity of work. I’ve always been encouraged to go out and learn more.” Looking to the future, Siobhan says she’s intent on staying at the University: “I know I can continue to find ways for my career to progress here. The diversity between faculties and departments means that there is a lot to keep you excited”.
