Despite being a ‘bad Melburnian’ (not liking footy), Melissa Tan has been kicking nothing but goals since joining our Victorian team in early 2020. We asked Melissa about her work in the defence sector, and the working culture that makes her proud to call Melbourne home.
As an Assistant Project Manager my role is to help the primary Project Manager for any given project we are working on. The chances I’ve had to get out on-site so far have been super valuable, as I’ve gotten to see what a project looks like in full swing.
Traveller! Phenomenal coffee.
I'm not! I feel like such a bad Melburnian now.
All my life, so 22 years.
Anywhere I can hang out with friends really.
At the moment I’m working on the redevelopment of the HMAS Cerberus site, which will help out a lot of Navy personnel once it’s done.
HMAS Cerberus is the Navy’s primary training site so making sure its infrastructure is sufficient both now and the future is really key to a well-trained Navy force. I’ve been working on this project for over a year and I’m proud to be involved in it.
I attended a planning course recently and it was interesting to hear what’s in store for Melbourne and Victoria in terms of infrastructure and development. As a community, we’re setting ambitious goals, but they’re all achievable. Once they are reached they’ll really pay dividends for Melburnians and Victorians.
Something to do with environmental sustainability would be really cool, but I’m new to the industry and beggars can’t be choosers. I’ll take anything that comes my way – bring it on!
So many reasons! The people, the culture, there’s such a wide range of people in this city and it is really rewarding to get to know the people around you in both a personal and professional context. I also think we’ve got a really great working culture in Victoria—we know how to balance work and fun.
