About Cliff Brownless:


My Career can be divided into three phases:

  • From 1985 until 1995 I worked in the Australian Federal Public Service in South Australia, mainly in the then Department of Employment and Industrial Relations. 
  • From 1995 until 2010 I held various high level senior roles in private industry. Details of those roles are outlined in my resume.
  • From 2010 until 2019 I worked at the Australian Department of Defence in Canberra on internal change management programs largely relating to learning and development. Again, details of those roles are outlined in my resume.

In June 2019 I became principal carer for my aging parents, both of whom had cancer.

Sadly, my mother died in 2020 and from that point I became full timer carer to my father. I did during this time undertake part-time and casual work at Shut the Gate Winery and Jindabyne Emporium, both in the snowy mountains.

My father is now in full-time care and I am seeking to return to the workforce. I believe that I have a wealth of life and work experience and still have something to offer the right employer. I am living in Canberra
