Former Shelter WA employee moving on

Former Shelter WA employee, Robert Gough, recently left Shelter WA, with his last day on 19 January 2018.

Robert has moved on to take a new role in Sustainability and Innovation at LandCorp.

“I believe it is a good time for me to make a change, as I have been at Shelter for five years, from when I completed my university studies.” said Rob.

“It has been a pleasure working with the team at Shelter WA and many others on a range of important issues.

“Reflecting on my time here, it is really heart-warming to know that there are so many passionate people making a contribution to improving the lives of others.”

Interim Chief Executive Officer, Eric Dillon, provided comment on Robert’s time at Shelter WA:

“Robert brought a range of valuable skills to Shelter WA and made an outstanding contribution at many levels. Robert worked across a number of policy areas, and led a number of key projects for the organisation, including Homelessness Week and Shelter WA’s work on the Seniors Housing Strategy,” Eric said.

“The Shelter WA staff and Board wish Robert all the best.

Robert first came to Shelter WA as a volunteer in 2012. His first research report entitled the ‘Local Government Guide for Developing an Affordable Housing Strategy’ received a letter of commendation from the Office of the Premier and the Office of the Director General of Housing.

Robert will still be involved in the work of the sector as he will continue in his position as a Board Member at the Perth Inner City Youth Service (PICYS).
