Nihad’s career with BEMAC has spanned an incredible 20 years. Three years after arriving in Brisbane as a Bosnian refugee, Nihad decided to shed his mechanic career and apply for the position of caretaker at the heritage-listed Yugumba building, which was BEMAC’s home for almost 20 years.

With exceptional problem solving skills, an eye for detail and strong technical abilities, Nihad makes sure the Queensland Multicultural Centre is always in tip-top condition. From fire safety to routine maintenance, Nihad is our man. BEMAC doesn’t merely provide a platform where Nihad can apply his broad skills set, the opportunity to work with people from diverse backgrounds gives deep satisfaction to this accidental cultural scholar..
