Jaime Benjamin


Jaime joined the Australian Progressives at the beginning of 2020 and immediately accepted the role of National Treasurer. He has been a self-confessed Bernie Sanders supporter since 2015, when he was first introduced to the progressive movement now sweeping the world. Originally hailing from South Africa, his family moved to Australia in 1997 when he was coming into his teenage years.

Jaime is a jack of all trades, having spent over 20 years working in different industries from retail to sales. For the past five years he has facilitated financial literacy workshops to over 80,000 secondary students across the country and now manages a remote team of facilitators.

Jaime has an extensive volunteer portfolio, having been a member of Rotaract and Rotary, a martial arts instructor and an SES volunteer and trainer.

Nowadays you will find him advocating for social equity, volunteering in his local community and spending as much time as possible teaching his daughter the principles of kindness and compassion for people, animals and the environment.
