Staff Profile | Gwendaline Jossec
What is your role with TLISC?
When did you join the transport and logistics industry and what have you done?
I first joined the transport and logistics industry and the VET sector when I joined TLISC in May 2014, coming from an energy background.
In my analyst role I examine various data sets and undertake extensive research on macroeconomic and workforce trends in the transport and logistics industry, and the extent to which VET enrolments match the skill needs of the industry. Every month I produce the brief paper called ‘Chart of the Month’ which is distributed in TLISC’s newsletter as well provide input to industry intelligence activities such as reports and discussion papers.
How did you become part of the VET industry?
When I joined TLISC.
Tell us about your work-life before TLISC.
Before joining TLISC I worked as an industry analyst for the Global CCS Institute, an international organisation focused on carbon capture and storage and headquartered in Australia. I started my career in France at EDF Group, which is the world’s largest utility.
What training and education have you undertaken?
I hold an MBA from a French business school; my academic background is in energy economics, urban management and business planning.
What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
To be exactingly precise when dealing with data (from my econometrics teachers at university). It taught me to always seek to thoroughly understand a dataset and its limitations before using it, and to be very clear and specific when presenting findings to an audience. This is something I try to keep in mind every day in my job.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
I find it particularly rewarding to work in such a broad and varied industry, where there is always something interesting happening and I am learning every day.
How do you spend your time away from work?
I train in grappling/wrestling and I am a licensed pilot… in paragliding. My aircraft is a piece of cloth!
Cake or ice cream OR mountains or ocean?
