“I love working at 96five because I learn something new about my community, myself and God each day. At 96five, I have opportunities beyond my role to learn new skills and find areas that spark my passion. I enjoy working with a team that love to work hard and have fun while doing it. Since working here I have been more connected with the community of Brisbane. Getting to know the stories of so many listeners motivates me in my work. Knowing that I can make someone smile or impact their life is a great reason to wake up each morning and do the job I do. I know that what I do at work has a greater purpose and impact than just myself. I love working at 96five!”
