Lukas Southorn - Alumnus 

Based in Canberra, I’m employed by the Department of Infrastructure & Regional Development as a Policy Officer. Bond gave me an incredibly strong baseline of knowledge. I have a unique knowledge base in environmental sustainability and a strong foundation in areas that employers find fitting as desired attributes. Especially within the Australian Public Service, there is the need for specialised knowledge. I believe Bond prepares you with these skills especially well.
