Zac – HRAR Project Support

Staff Profile

Zac might be hard to spot as he’s usually hiding behind a PPE gown and face shield, but you’ll definitely recognise his warmth and compassion.

Before joining Banyule Community Health, Zac was working as an accountant. He was eager for an opportunity to help his community, so Zac secured a job with our High-Risk Accommodation Response (HRAR) program in 2020 and quickly joined the testing team, at Banyule Community Health.

Zac says while it’s hard to pinpoint a favourite memory, each day working in HRAR is so inspiring that it’s impossible to lose your passion.

Zac believes in supporting the community that supports him, and working with our diverse testing team has been an opportunity for passionate people like Zac to deliver high quality community healthcare. When he’s not keeping his community safe you’ll find Zac volunteering at a local emergency food relief shelter, or spending time in nature with his partner and their dog.

Zac is a 3rd year paramedicine student – expecting to graduate in 2021 – and he hopes to work in the ambulance service, as he thrives under pressure. Working at Banyule Community Health has opened doors for Zac, and we’re confident he will continue to care for his community as his career in paramedicine unfolds.

Thank you for keeping our community safe Zac!
