Good afternoon <<First Name>>

Welcome to the first episode of our weekly podcast series 'Work with Purpose'. This series explores how the Australian Public Service (APS) is playing a critical role in delivering the Australian Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Across all areas and levels of the APS, action is being taken to implement the policies of the Government to support the Australian community.

Each week on ‘Work with Purpose’ we talk to key individuals who are leading the response inside the APS, giving listeners a unique perspective on how the APS is managing this once in a generation challenge. ‘Work with Purpose’ is produced as a partnership between contentgroup and IPAA with the support of the Australian Public Service Commission (APSC).
