“What motivates me the most about working for NSW is that I can clearly see how the work I do makes a positive contribution to the community."

An energetic communications manager and strategist with over 10 years' experience, Amanda brings her passion for collaboration to her role as the Director of Communications at the Office of Sport.

“I work across the organisation to provide strategic communication and marketing advice. Managing a team of eight, I am passionate about leading and developing teams, and bringing out the best of each individual in diverse groups,” Amanda says.

“I also love how communications plays a role in connecting the dots across the business,” she says.

For Amanda, no two days are the same. One minute she will be working with the internal teams to design and execute large scale marketing and communications strategies, and then next she might be responding to various media enquiries, negotiating with stakeholders, or working with the Minister’s office on pressing issues.

“What motivates me the most about working for NSW is that I can clearly see how the work I do makes a positive contribution to the community. Whether it’s supporting kids to get active, or promoting funding for regional sporting infrastructure, the end goal is always for the benefit of the people of NSW,” Amanda explains.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, outside of work Amanda loves getting active. She enjoys anything from the gym to team sports, with a sprinkle of travel.
