February Contractor of the Month

David Parkinson and Simon Cox


David is currently contracting with the Australian Federal Police as a Program Manager. 

David joined the AFP about 18 months ago and has recently had his contract extended to 2022. He has strong project management skills and his role is vital to ensure the projects he works on are effectively managed and maintain momentum.

David’s team leader said that he fit seamlessly into the team and quickly became an integral part of the area, particularly with respect to managing and guiding projects. Last year, David had stewardship of a project that required the creation of an entire framework. David met all milestone timeframes and produced a high-quality product.

“Dave has an excellent ability to put people at ease and he is very highly regarded by his peers and counterparts.” – David’s Team Leader

As a thank you for all his great work, David’s consultant, Simon Cox, visited to present him with a gift (an Akiba voucher and a few HorizonOne goodies).

Well done, David, and enjoy your gift!
