IPS trainee Brittany Linforth is from Bunbury, and is part of the Willman Tribe, based in Narrogin, on her mother’s side of the family. She is inspired by her Nan, a significant influence in the Bunbury community, who passed away from cancer last year.
Brittany came on board the IPS team on October 10 as a trainee, under the supervision of Research Specialist Dr Katie Roe. Her traineeship is part of her Certificate 3 in Business and Administration.
As part of her job, she carries out general office administration, assists with national research projects, coordinates all the travel arrangements for IPS in partnership with Intravel, and is gaining exposure to business development, research, report writing, social media and marketing.
When she has completed the 12-month traineeship, Brittany plans to go out and get her bachelor of business.
Outside of work, Brittany does Mixed Martial Arts and boxing. She wants to travel to Thailand one day and do a training camp.
“I’m a real family-based person, family is everything to me,” Brittany said.
“I want to show Aboriginal people as a whole that we can do anything and everything, there are no limits.”
