Who with support of family and workmates was able to keep going.
Name: Jodie Stojanovski
Your role: Associate Director, Inclusion and Engagement
Region: Docklands, Victoria
What’s your story?
I have a real passion for helping people and making a difference. I was keen for a change when I was living in a (comparatively) small town, I wanted more for myself. I also wanted a challenge – I’d been working in the insurance industry for six years, living in the same place and doing the same things.
I wanted to completely change my future and thought Melbourne was a much larger (and scarier) commitment than moving to Sydney.
Despite not working in Acquisition Marketing, the NAB hiring manager saw something in me and gave me a shot. And I haven’t looked back since.
How have you made a difference?
I’m currently doing some work in leading our domestic and family violence strategy. It’s an epidemic in Australia and to be working on ways we can support our people and customers facing into this terrible situation gives me great pride.
It’s unexpected that a large organisation would focus in on these real issues that impact people so deeply but that’s why I love working at NAB – we care about the things that matter and do something about it.
What are you passionate about?
I’ve supported the Cancer Council for close to 10 years and donate to them through NAB’s Workplace Giving program every fortnight. In lieu of a traditional bonbonniere, I provided a donation to the Cancer Council on behalf of my 350 Wedding guests.
Cancer has touched everyone’s life in some way, so I want to play a part in finding a cure.
