Laura Shortis – Executive Manager, Cire Training and Community Hubs
As Executive Manager, Cire Training and Community Hubs, Laura Shortis has much to offer given her extensive background in leadership roles across the community services sector and her strong appreciation for the positive impact that comes with community involvement and a sense of belonging.
In her role as Executive Manager, Laura is always looking for opportunities to strengthen the relationships the hubs have with individual members of the community, partner organisations and the community as a whole.
Laura believes that the key to the success is for the hubs to provide opportunities for innovation and continuous improvement, driven by a responsive approach to community needs.
Working across both Chirnside Park and Yarra Junction, Laura loves the opportunity this provides to connect with those accessing the hubs and is always up for a chat.
“It is wonderful to be working with a team of dedicated and passionate individuals to deliver services within my community.”
“It is a privilege to be able to help people engage and have a sense of belonging in our community.”
“Nothing makes me happier than being able to assist the community I work and live in. Getting to know their needs, and providing them with a safe and fun space to connect with others is what it’s all about.”
“My favourite part of the day is having a cuppa and a chat with some of our locals and ensuring that the Hub provides a feeling of comfort, happiness and safety to our Community.”
