General Counsel – Melinda Honig

Caulfield Connections Melinda Honig joined Caulfield Grammar’s School Council in 2018. She is the current General Counsel, Company Secretary and Chief Risk Officer for Australian Unity Limited.

Are you ‘Career Fit’?

In the past twelve months, a significant portion of the Victorian workforce experienced a ‘career bump’ for the very first time. A career bump is any negative impact on your career that comes unexpectedly, such as a job loss, redundancy, demotion or a missed promotion.
