Meet our team: Conor, multiprogram support business officer

Meet our Multiprogram Support Business Officer, Conor!

Conor is a valued member of the Communications and Engagment team. He originally joined CheckUP back in 2018, playing a crucial role in supporting the coordination of Queensland Mental Health Week.

This year Conor has taken on a broader role at CheckUP, working across several different projects. While he continues to work on QMHW, he also supports our Access for All and Genomics for GPs projects.

What does a typical day look like for you?
There is no typical day at CheckUP! Lately I’ve been very busy with Queensland Mental Health Week which happens in October. For QMHW, I have mostly been responding to inquiries, publishing events on the website, and managing the merchandise. In the months leading up to the week, there’s a lot of planning, collaboration, and direct outreach that has to happen to make things run smoothly. 

What do you enjoy about working for CheckUP?
CheckUP does a lot of good, important work and I like being a small part of that. It’s also a very friendly and flexible place to work which is great.

What are 3 words you would use to describe CheckUP?
Caring, Friendly, Collaborative.

What activities do you enjoy when you’re not working?
I like to go indoor bouldering as often as I can. I also enjoy trivia and I’m working on my (very poor) chess game.

Who did you last listen to when you drove/flew somewhere?
Probably Nick Cave.
