Greg

We’ve had the pleasure of working with Greg for over ten years now, and in that time he’s taken on a few different roles, currently working for us as an Acting Team Lead in a maternity leave role. Starting his career in support work back in 2012, he quickly found great enjoyment in supporting clients at our Greg Norman Dr facility in Tamworth. Like many who make the switch to a career in support work, the dynamic environment and relationships formed with clients provided Greg with a very unique kind of job satisfaction.
“No two days are the same! I have the privilege of working with our residents where I support them to try and maintain as much independence as possible, completing house chores, medical appointments as well as achieving their goals but as a team leader I deal with all of the logistical side of things such as rosters, working with guardians both public and family and work with some amazing staff which I support.”
Like many of our long term employees, it’s an underlying passion for helping people that keeps Greg coming back to work each day. “Disability is something that is close to my heart as I have some family members as well as some friends that either have an impairment or disability but I love that at the end of the day that I feel like I have made a difference is someone’s life and always try and make everyone’s day a little brighter with getting them to smile with some of my amazing dad jokes. Just ask the staff I work with, they will tell you they are great!” he says.
As an organisation we are proud to have Greg on board, and we recently asked him why he loved working for Challenge.
“I love the environment and the fact that no two days are the same. I have great support from management as well as the staff I work with are amazing people as well. I have enormous job satisfaction seeing the people we look after achieve their goals. I always say, “We have days that make us cry, we have days that make us laugh, it’s the days that make us cry from laughter I look forward to the most’!”

We couldn’t agree more, Greg.
