Kirsty Mitchell, Director, Career Development Centre

Kirsty is the Director of the Career Development Centre at Bond University and has held this role since 2006. Prior to joining Bond University, Kirsty had worked in all aspects of employment, recruitment and training since 1998.

"When I first joined Bond in 2005, I fell in love with working in a University. I love the academic environment, working with incredible colleagues and being able to make a difference. I have the great privilege to work with an amazing team but also to support students as they go through their University journey and make the leap into their professional lives. It is incredibly rewarding to be part of this, not just for the students, but their families and friends. Graduations are very special events in our calendar. I believe that both Career Development and Education are truly transformational and I get to combine the two. Bond is a dynamic organisation and no year has been the same twice. It's kept me challenged, engaged and motivated and I think I have the best job in the world!

I think the best parts of working at Bond are: fantastic colleagues across the University, the opportunity to make a difference, and stunning campus and resources."
