Biography

Jane Hume is a Liberal Party Senator from Victoria, having been elected in July 2016. Born and raised in Melbourne, Senator Hume completed a Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Melbourne, later returning to gain further qualifications in Political Science.

Subsequent to graduation, Senator Hume held various senior positions in the financial services industry, working for the National Australia Bank, Rothschild Australia, Deutsche Bank and, immediately prior to her election, as a Senior Policy Advisor at Australian Super. She has also served on a number of boards including the Royal Children’s Hospital, Federation Square, and Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Australia.

Around 5 million Australians will start receiving our second $750 support payment from today, including pensioners. And millions of Australians are set to benefit again from the important tax cuts we legislated last year, getting up to $1,080 back in their tax returns. It’s all part of our record financial support to help get Australians through these difficult times. Over the weekend, I also agreed to providing more Australian Defence Force support to the Victorian Government to help deal with the COVID outbreak in Melbourne. We’ll continue to provide whatever support is needed to make sure we all get through this together.
