Meet Damien Opolski
Senior Policy Advisor
“Many of you will know Damien from his time as the director of the Department’s Learning Centre. Over the years he’s played a key role in the delivery of both policy and systems information and training. If you’ve been in the sector for a while you’ve most likely seen him at an information session or heard him via webinar. Earlier in his career he spent a number of years on the ‘front line’ – he estimates he’s conducted over 10.000 job seeker interviews and worked with hundreds of employers. He’s currently looking after our NESA IT Reference and Reports Group, and delivering his highly acclaimed training programmes direct to our members.
Damien has a Bachelor of Economics from Adelaide University, as well as Diplomas in Training and Assessment, and Project Management. He’s also a qualified Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages.”
