Cate Bennett is the Head of Contracts & Funding Bids at beyondblue, having been promoted to her deserving position of leadership after only five months at the organisation.
Prior to joining beyondblue, Cate worked in the Victorian public service, completing the Victorian Government Graduate Recruitment and Development Scheme in 2009, and later working as part of the Department of Transport’s Commercial Legal Advice Unit.
According to Cate, her decision to pursue a career in the government and not-for-profit sectors is driven by a desire to contribute to projects that genuinely enrich the civic, social and economic wellbeing of the community.
Cate strongly believes in the concept of social change philanthropy. She has shown to be true to her passion, volunteering with two local Victorian organisations – South Port Day Links and The Edge Community Fund.
