Our team is made up of full-time and part-time professionals, working across social work, health and business services. 

What we can offer

The health and wellbeing of our employees is really important to us. That’s why we offer an employee assistance program (EAP), flu vaccinations, access to bicycles, self-care seminars and an extra day of leave - a ‘Ferris Bueller Day'.

As well as the option to salary-package (part time and full time employees only) we support our team with professional development, mentoring and training opportunities.
