From V8 Supercars pit crew to local driving superhero, Bruce Robertson is just one of Comlink Australia’s employees who has shown that a diverse career background and a great attitude is the perfect combination to succeed in the aged care industry.
“Bruce has been with us for eight years and started as a volunteer driver, and he had never imagined that he would end up working full-time in the aged care sector. Having been in pit crews for some well-established drivers in Australian V8 Supercars, worked offshore on oil rigs and on construction sites, Bruce entertains our clients with his stories of being a dare devil but also has a great sense of compassion. It is a personality like Bruce that creates a rich and diverse cultural framework for our organisation” – Liam Mayo
A qualified mechanic who has his skydiving license and spends his weekends on his jet ski or motorbike, Mr Robertson states that he thoroughly enjoys spending time with clients as he drives them to appointments or activities.
“I don’t use an alarm clock to get out of bed, as I am actually looking forward to going to work every day. There is a great deal of satisfaction in this work as you know that you are making a real difference in people’s lives and they are clearly grateful to you for that.”
