Role in IMOS
The Communications Manager is responsible for developing and implementing the national IMOS communications strategy. The Communications Manager provides high level advice to the IMOS Director and IMOS Project Manager and liaises with the IMOS Operators, Nodes and Facilities so that IMOS is widely acknowledged by the Australian marine and climate science community.
Warrick completed a Bachelor or Education, specialising in Science Education, at the University of Melbourne. After teaching Science, Biology and Mathematics for a number of years in Australia, England and Zimbabwe, he took on an education specialist role with CSIRO.
Over the course of 12 years, Warrick occupied several roles within CSIRO, including Marketing Communications Manager for Health, Biotechnology and Materials Science Divisions as well as Change Communication Manager (Organisation-wide).
An interest in the evolving area of Internal Communications saw Warrick move to La Trobe University where he took on the role of Internal Communication Manager, developing the function from little more than a weekly paper-based bulletin, to a suite of multi-way communication channels that became part of the University's cultural landscape.
Now residing in Hobart, Warrick enjoys the job-share Communications Manager position with IMOS as well as managing online communications and media liaison for the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), a role that complements the Marine Observation space of IMOS.
Outside of work, Warrick has written and produced several plays for various arts festivals. He enjoys running on the beach with his dog, watching Netflix and HBO drama series and has recently begun learning to sail with his son.
