Greg Bull

Community Support Consultant
Ipswich Region

As a proud Queenslander I enjoy Rugby League, especially my team, the North Queensland Cowboys and I am an avid enthusiast of gardening, fishing and heading outback.

My career in the Disability Employment Service has been an extraordinary journey for me for many reasons. Given the chance to embark on a career with a leading Disability Employment Service specialising in Mental Health. I began as an Employment Consultant in North Brisbane, a role I still cherish. Subsequent promotions gave me the opportunity to lead a great team, achieving positive results for many participants as the manager for the South Brisbane ESA.

Now with significant changes to the contract for DES, I was offered and accepted the opportunity to work with Family Services Australia who have over 30 years’ experience in working for the community and disadvantaged participants towards sustainable & suitable employment.

My new role as Community Support Consultant with Family Services Australia will give me the opportunity to build capability and capacity by empowering clients in their recovery so that they may find their strengths and succeed in their own goals aligns with my own personal values.
