Creating Equity through Opportunity

Madeline Appoo

Employee Profile – Madeline Appoo - Facilities Administrator

My name is Madeline Appoo, I am a very proud Mambu woman from Innisfail in the Tropic of North Queensland. I am passionate about my people and culture. I left home to come to Canberra in 1980, at the age of 17 years old, to work at the Department of Defence and have made Canberra my home.

I have been employed with various Indigenous companies/ organisations throughout my working career, including; Aboriginal Hostels – Finance Officer, Winnunga Nimmityjah Aborigional Health Service – Finance Officer/Fleet Manager, Australian Indigenous Communication Association – Office Support Manager and the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers Association – Admin Officer.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working at each organisation and am grateful to have had the opportunity to meet and assist many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people Australia wide. I love experiencing and learning about the different cultures and languages across our great nation.

I started with Evolve FM April 2019 as a Facilities Administrator and have enjoyed my time so far. I enjoy learning about the facilities management industry and working with a great mob. I am looking forward to continuing my employment and journey with Evolve.
