Meet the CPSU’s James Roberts
THE CPSU welcomed James Roberts to its Member Advice and Support Team last week.
It’s James’ motivation to help others that saw him take the CPSU post.
“I’ve been an accountant for pretty much my whole working life. I worked in an accounting firm then a wind energy business before taking some time off and lived in the US.”
James stayed in a few places in the US, including Chicago and Lake Tahoe in Californian Mountains near San Francisco, then San Diego, working and holidaying.
“I moved back to Melbourne and spent some time studying law before I wanted to go back into the workforce. I wanted to be in a job where I could help people and use the skills I’ve learnt to help people to where they want to go.”
James is adjusting back to life in his home state after moving back last week after living in Melbourne.
Outside work, James is into a range of sports including basketball, football and bushwalking. He’s also a keen Richmond Tigers supporter.
