The Westmead Redevelopment Project is reaching out to Western Sydney to encourage its community to get involved in revitalising the Westmead landscape.

The project recently enlisted the help of the Western Sydney Universty to engage a final year communication student to come aboard as an intern.

New recruit Tim Dunbar is now assisting with the communications planning and implementation for the Westmead Project.
“At the moment, I’m designing a research project to find out how best to communicate with our stakeholders,” Tim said.

“We want to know how, where and when to communicate - if they prefer face-to-face communication, social media or print material, for example. If they’re on social, when do they connect with us? This will allow us to better target our communications and provide them in the most effective format.”

Tim said the ability to individually voice questions or concerns about the redevelopment in an open forum, and have those queries mitigated in a respectful and considered manner was extremely important to him as a communications practitioner.

Director – Communications & Engagement Nicky Seaby said Tim has quickly become a valuable member of the team.

“We want to seek out and support talented newcomers who can contribute dynamic ideas to our project team,” Nicky said.

“We’re delighted to be able to give Tim, and others in the future, the opportunity to expand their professional practice through this innovative internship program and to build stronger ties with important partners such as Western Sydney University.”
