Candice Burningham started her 20+ year admin career as an ‘Office Junior’ in Australia. She worked her way up to being a C-Suite Executive Assistant to some of the biggest and brightest minds globally.
In 2021, Candice returned to Australia from living in London, UK. She saw a gap in the market for a niche job board and community support network dedicated to the administrative profession. This led her to create Admin Avenues - Australia’s first premiere employment marketplace and community website for admin professionals.
In 2023, Candice saw an opportunity to acquire a membership group to grow the Admin Avenues community globally. She acquired The Admin Collective, under Admin Avenues, ensuring that all admins around the world have a safe place to connect and grow in the admin profession.
Candice is a true admin advocate. She is often spotted networking at in-person events, speaking on global virtual summits such as the ES Global and Practically Perfect PA’s summits and speaking on podcasts - including her own 'The Future Focused Admin'. Her commitment to the admin profession goes beyond her own businesses. She is also a Board Director for the Australian Institute of Office Professionals (AIOP), Australia’s founding body which has just celebrated 60 years of supporting the administrative office profession.
In her personal life, Candice is a supporter of UNHCR Australia (The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) and Ronald McDonald House. She is also a proud LGBTQIA+ straight ally and supports the Pride Foundation Australia.
