Selena has worked extensively across the criminal justice sector both in Queensland and the UK, where she was responsible for the management of wide-scale programs implementation for the Home Office. In Queensland, Selena worked in both the corrections and youth justice environments before moving into Recruitment and HR in 2008.
Selena has a deep appreciation of the challenges facing the Indigenous population, from rates of incarceration through to opportunities for economic prosperity and home ownership.
Her experience of workforce planning, organisational design and leadership role functions has seen her align closely with organisations within the Indigenous sector to identify talent pools for ongoing sustainability. Selena strongly believes in the need for the recruitment of Indigenous candidates to be managed holistically so they connect meaningfully and leverage individual and community relationships.
