Experienced Marketer joins the Butter Fish Services Team
After spending almost two decades working in Sydney, Jacinta Fintan has returned to her home town of Newcastle and taken up a role with growing disability support services organisation, Butter Fish Services.
After studying at the University of Newcastle, Jacinta Fintan worked in various marketing and public relations roles before creating the internationally acclaimed Stencil Art Prize which she began 10 years ago in Newtown. The Prize is now regarded as the largest stencil event in the world and tours biennially around Australia.
In 2017 Jacinta launched The Wall Station, a business focussed on mural and public art installations with schools, councils, commercial enterprises and private landowners. The Wall Station has a large stable of Australian and international artists – with a focus on street artists and graffiti artists, as well as a range of contemporary visual and sculptural artists.
At Butter Fish Services, Jacinta will work closely with the founding director Don MacAskill to develop effective communication and advocacy campaigns for people in the region living with disabilities.
“Butter Fish Services works with more than 100 people in the region loving with disabilities. Our role is to now only connect these people to services that allow them to reach their individual goals, but to find ways for them to effectively communicate with us and the wider NDIS sector,” Don said.
“Jacinta will be a great asset to our growing team,” he said.
Jacinta and her family moved to Newcastle to access a ‘better’ lifestyle and access the good schools. “While we loved the opportunities that we had in Sydney, now was a great time to move before our son started school,” Jacinta said.
“Butter Fish Services provides outstanding support to this community and I am very much looking forward to working with the team,” she said.
Butter Fish Services is a registered and accredited provider of support and services under the NDIS. It is located in the Hunter region and exists to support people with a disability and specialises in providing culturally appropriate support services to Aboriginal people
