Renae Swain

Field Officer

“I'm looking forward to working with KGT to create strong working relationships within Broome and surrounding communities to benefit the local people and create sustainable employment.”

After Renae spent four years living in the Torres Strait Islands, she made the move to Broome in 2013. Renae worked in many different fields such as Government, Hospitality, and JSA services before transitioning into KGT. While working in the JSA services, she thoroughly enjoyed being able to help and support people into employment."This is what made me pursue a position with KGT. I'm looking forward to supporting and mentoring people through traineeships and apprenticeships in the Kimberleys as well as being able to work with different culture groups to expand my knowledge of the Kimberley culture".

Helen Atcheson

Administration Officer

“I look forward to growing within KGT and furthering my skills in a locally-focused organisation.”

Helen is the friendly face you will first meet when visiting the Broome office. Hailing from Perth, she moved to Broome over 5 years ago and now calls Broome home. Helen has extensive experience within administration and more recently has also been involved in the hospitality and tourism industries.  “I am very keen to go back to my HR and administration strengths in my role at KGT”. Helen is delighted to be part of an organisation which values  sustainable employment while supporting local communities.

She believes her time working at the Broome Aboriginal Legal Service has aided her appreciation and understanding of the challenges regional locations face. Helen looks forward to growing within KGT and furthering her skills in a locally-focused organisation.
