“My role allows me to uphold State Government values and to contribute to and serve the people of NSW and our environment.”

“I’m continually learning new things,” enthuses Melanie, GIS Officer for the Local Land Services division of NSW Department of Industry, Skills and Regional Development.

In her role, Melanie takes on a variety of duties to support the gathering of accurate and reliable mapping data for the benefit of protecting land in NSW.

“I work for both regional North Coast and the State to assist with a diverse range of projects – from mapping weeds and wild dogs, to assisting Landcare and other organisations. Computer-based mapping is becoming more relied on, and I contribute to this service in my role too,” Melanie explains.

Although her diverse role means she’s always on her toes, Melanie thoroughly enjoys being able to work in a role where no two days are ever the same, and that allows her to work on projects making a difference to our State and wider community.

“I love the diversity of both the work and the staff I work with every day, and working on projects that are of state and national importance,” Melanie relates enthusiastically.

“The work is demanding with many projects and deadlines, but it’s a great opportunity to contribute to the range of work being done.”

Outside of work, Melanie enjoys running, travelling, good food, and outdoor activities.
