In 2001 Terry took up the position of Senior Adviser (Security Operations) for CHOGM 2002 in Coolum before becoming Head of Security at Parliament House.
From 2003 to 2007 Terry worked as Senior Adviser (Corporate) to the Prime Minister. Terry then worked in the Department of Parliamentary Services before returning to the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet in January 2010 to establish the CHOGM 2011 Taskforce.
