Woman with a passion for helping wins Best Job in Town comp

ALEXANDRA Cordeau loves working with people who have an intellectual disability so much she plans to do it for the rest of her life.

So when she found out about The Northern Star's Best Job in Town competition, she engaged in some friendly banter with her partner Peter Gauge about who had the best job, then entered.

"My partner loves his job and thought he was going to win, but I said 'No way, I'm going to win'," she said.

Yesterday, Ms Cordeau could not contain her excitement when she found out she had won.

"That is so cool, it's such a surprise, thank you so much," the Byron Bay woman laughed.

For seven years, Ms Cordeau has been a support worker for Accommodation Network at Ocean Shores.

"I work with some very special girls who are heaps of fun and I love it.

Ms Cordeau will get a $1000 voucher courtesy of Flight Centre.

She welcomed the status of having the Best Job in Town, but her passion shows she knew it already.
