Following a thorough recruitment process, I have much pleasure in announcing the appointment of Mr Jamon Thomas to the position of Director of Safeguarding, Compliance and Human Resources for the District of Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan and Papua New Guinea, effective from January 2021.
Jamon brings years of engagement and expertise to these areas of increasing complexity experienced in a range of service areas. His specific skills include leadership roles in: Safeguarding; Stakeholder Relationship Management; Professional Standards; Risk Management; Project Management; HR Management; Governance, Accountability and Compliance; and Executive Management.
Following a distinguished career with the NSW Police Service as investigator; Team Leader; Coordinator and later Professional Standards' Manager in the Counter Terrorism Command, Jamon worked very successfully over the last five years in Child Protection, Professional Standards, Employment Services and Human Resources with Sydney Catholic Schools and in the Senior Executive Service (SES) of the NSW Family & Community Services (FACS).
Reporting to and working closely with the District's Professional Standards' Officer, including in the area of Safeguarding training, we may be confident that Jamon's appointment will further ensure that the policies and protocols operating within our District ministries will be of the highest order.
Jamon is married to Nicole and is father to Charly and Luca. He is a practicing Catholic in the St Declan's Parish, Penshurst.
On behalf of all Lasallians within the District, I offer Jamon a warm welcome. He will be working from the La Salle Centre, Bankstown.
