"We have branded our little team "FAMSA", so that kind of says it all. As a government organisation we are small, but we have a high variety of business units and expertise that spans across Australia.

AMSA is an organisation that provides opportunities, supports staff professional aspirations and celebrates success."

– Jenet, Vessel safety team
