I am a single professional in my 50s. I am moving to Canberra for 8 months for a "summer" consultancy with the public service starting late September 2011. I have been working at all levels of the public service (Commonwealth, state and local) for about 30 years. I am a non-smoker. I have been in Melbourne for 8 years, after spending 20 years in Canberra.
I will be happy to provide police check and references.
