Belle AllisonStaff profile
Executive Assistant

I've been with NTGPE for about eight years. The organisation is supportive of flexible working arrangements, cares about work/life balance and runs a good health and wellbeing program. I've been granted the flexibility to move between new projects and departments within NTGPE.

The work we do at NTGPE is truly meaningful and I share with my colleagues a commitment to providing the best training and health care across the NT. We all put in a lot of effort to help close the gap to improve health outcomes for Indigenous people.
