There’s nothing better than matching someone to the perfect role. We’d know, it’s our job. And it could be your job too. Join us today to help make a real difference in the lives of the disadvantaged, the long-term unemployed, and people with disability.

 

 

Looking for just a job? Or something more…

For some people, a job is just a job. For others, it’s a passion. Regardless, you’re going to spend most of your life working and so we believe it’s important to remember two things.

First, you should love what you do. Second, you should be proud of the difference you’re making in the world.

That’s what sets apart those who work at WISE. They’re driven, diverse, passionate people, who are excited to come to work every day. Whether you’re looking for a not-for-profit career, looking to work with people with disabilities, or simply looking to make a difference, then we would love to have you on our team.

We’re looking for new team members across different areas of our business with roles available in our employment services and social enterprises teams. We also have occasional openings in our allied services, head office and specialised programs departments.
