It is with great pleasure we announce they are to fill two new roles within our organisation that will expand our ability and impact. John Bourke (PhD Candidate), to the role of Lead Researcher and Jo Nunnerley (PhD Graduand) to the role of Knowledge Translation Specialist.

Two new roles at BAIL

I am pleased to confirm that the Board of the Burwood Academy of Independent Living (BAIL), on the recommendation of the BAIL Academy Director Dr Deborah Snell, has appointed John Bourke (PhD Candidate), to the role of Lead Researcher and Jo Nunnerley (PhD Graduand) to the role of Knowledge Translation Specialist.

BAIL's TALES : AUGUST

Kia ora from the expanding BAIL Team,

This month we warmly welcomed Jenny Freeman (no relation to Claire) to our team. Jenny began her part time roll last month and comes with accounting skills to support Brian in the BAIL office. Managing the financial accounting around the many and varied research projects we have at any one time requires specialised expertise and as we grow and expand, extra back office support will help keep the BAIL machine rolling.
