My name is Joseph Knox and I am a third year student at the University of Notre Dame, I am studying a Bachelor of Commerce and majoring in Human Resource Management.  As part of my degree, I am required to complete an internship which I am doing at Southcare within their Human Resources Department.

The knowledge and experience I have gained from my time with Southcare I know will be extremely valuable to my ongoing studies and my future career. My time at Southcare has utilised the various knowledge and skills I have developed over the course of my degree, especially in the areas of Policy, Business Information Technology, Business Communication, Change Management and Psychology of Work. I had been given the project of consolidating the location of forms and policies as well as streamlining policy accessibility through the linking of forms to their related policies for ease of access.  My studies had prepared me for undertaking the tasks given to me throughout my internship and Southcare has provided me with unparalleled support, professional development opportunities, as well as personal development opportunities that have been crucial to my ongoing development as a business professional throughout my internship.

From my experience within Southcare I now know that I made the right choice with my studies and truly know that my passion is to work in the not-for-profit sector.

Southcare is pleased to have worked with Curtin University and the Universities of Western Australia and Notre Dame on many interesting and unique projects over the years.

We support the principle of service learning as a mutual exchange of service to provide rich learning and development opportunities to university students with a positive benefit to an organisation and community.

This year Southcare and John Curtin Leadership Academy (JCLA) worked together over a couple of months on “A Trip to the Past”, a collage of life stories of Southcare’s clients and friends.

Southcare would like to thank JCLA students for their remarkable work in capturing the stories of our clients and friends. We loved working with you and enjoyed your enthusiasm and joie de vivre!
