"One of the great benefits of doing the PACE program was that I got a job. That was over a year ago now and I'm really enjoying my current role at Place Partners."– Chris Patfield

Through PACE, Chris Patfield completed an internship with the urban planning organisation Place Partners. His work with the company required him to employ many professional skills including data analysis, market research, communication and reporting to help create an urban environment plan that was sustainable, economical, and took environmental and cultural factors into account.

Chris’s work with Place Partners helped him to secure a position with the company, where he is now considered an integral part of the team.
