Serge Killingbeck – Analyst
Serge came to NCA in 2017 after ten years as a lecturer in the School of Law and Justice at Southern Cross University in Lismore, New South Wales.
In 2003 he took a hiatus of three years from paid employment, but not full time work, to look after ‘the twins’, now teenagers. Before this he worked as a general practice solicitor in Mullumbimby on the far north coast of New South Wales, moving back after spending two years in Melbourne and Sydney.
Serge began his legal career in Melbourne working for the boutique law firm Michael Brereton and Co, specialists in venture capital projects, IPO, taxation and, strangely, entertainment law. Since then, his work has largely focused on commercial, environment and planning, employment, IR and administrative law and policy development.
Serge has also been published on a range of subjects including limitation of liability (focusing on maritime claims), carbon trading and, most recently, sustainable development.
Prior to coming to law in his thirties, Serge worked in a range of industries throughout regional Australia including the cattle industry of the Northern Territory, gold mining in Queensland’s Gulf country and the club industry on the far north coast of New South Wales. He also had stints working in the family fishing business, contract planting sugar cane, a stock and station agent and labour hire in transport and construction.
The exact spot where the adventure began jumping on the Greyhound in Ballina bound for Kununurra, WA in 1983 can still be found. After 35 years the pipe and crack in the concrete gutter tripped on while getting on the bus is still there, a definite WHS hazard.
