As our Senior Advisor – First Nations, Bradley is responsible for working across the whole organisation to design and implement cultural initiatives which drive improvements to how we work with the First Nations people we support, and also how we support our First Nations staff members.
It’s an extremely important role that provides thoughtful consultation and context as we move towards improving our practice models and the services we deliver. Our organisational values which drive us include Collaboration, Respect and Integrity; it became apparent that a First Nations Advisor was required in order to deliver on these values in a meaningful way.

“When I first started at Challenge I worked in a role primarily focused around increasing staff capacity in culture in Foster Care. As this role developed, we identified that there was a need organisationally and this is how I came to work in the role I do today,” Bradley explains. “The career progression within Challenge has been very rewarding and has enabled me to continue building upon skills while supporting our clients, communities and staff.”

A typical day for Bradley can involve a lot of meetings as he liaises between the many organisational and community stakeholders, however the role is quite broad and also involves a lot of policy writing, travel and consultations with staff regarding project development.
“I am really passionate about my people, my mob. I am constantly wanting to make the way we work better in order to support our clients and communities on their path in their own cultural journey. My passion in Foster Care in particular is what drives me, wanting to see better outcomes for our children and young people, and it is an area which I have worked in for many years now. I come to work for two reasons, the first is to achieve better outcomes for our people, the second is to support staff in their ongoing development.”

Bradley’s passion is infectious and inspiring, and everyone who has the pleasure of working with him can testify to it. Being a catalyst for change is not for everyone, but the tenacity and dedication that Bradley has for his work is something we’re really proud to be part of.
“Challenge is a dynamic organisation that allows for change and accepts the need for change, quickly and effectively. This is the kind of organisation I like working at as it means whenever an area is identified where we can do something better or differently, it happens.”
