Lucinda is an All Rounder – a Business Services Supervisor with the Endeavour Foundation in Mackay, Queensland.
My role pretty much is helping out wherever needed. I returned back from Maternity Leave this year to find my role as Esafe Supervisor had changed as well as where I was situated in the workplace. I perform office duties on a daily basis as well as filling in whenever a staff member is away on holidays, to help out!
Endeavour Foundation Mackay is a great facility that offers great opportunities to those with a disability. It’s been an honest privilege being a part of this company.
I continue to learn something new every day and Endeavour has inspired me to follow on with where I want to be in life. I’ve met some fantastic life-long friends along the way!
What I most value about my role is the experience with several different people with an intellectual disability. They have shown me to value life and given me a more positive outlook on life. We’re all different in our own ways and every one of us is perfect in our own way. I get to mentor and be a guide to many supported employees who make working in this sector worth it by helping them achieve their goals and help them life a normal life.
