As Canberra’s largest not-for-profit community organisation, Communities at Work is dedicated to working with our community to build a resilient, sustainable and socially inclusive community.¬†With over 40 years in the ACT and Capital Region, we are known for going above and beyond, because of the people who work for us.

Our employees are at the heart of everything we do. Working with us means making a real difference in the lives of people in our community and being part of an organisation committed to making a positive social impact. Our people also enjoy a range of employee benefits when they work with us such as increased take-home pay due to tax savings from our charity status, healthy activity reimbursements including massages, gym memberships, swimming etc., mental health guidance through our Employee Assistance Program, professional development opportunities from our very own registered training organisation, flexibility with a range of leave options, mentoring and peer networks, as well as discounted child care and education services if applicable.

Communities at Work offers services and hires employees (and volunteers in some teams) across diverse areas:

  • Education and Care Services (Child Care & Education Centres, Out of School Hours Care, School Holiday Programs, Family Day Care)
  • Seniors and Disability Services (Social and Recreational programs, Community Transport)
  • Galilee School (Alternative School for at-risk and vulnerable students in Years 7-12)
  • Organisational Support (Administrative and Operational roles such as Finance, HR, Marketing, ICT etc)
  • Community Support Services (Supporting people experiencing hardship with food, clothing, accommodation etc.)

For school leavers, or individuals looking to start their first job or a new career, we also offer traineeships with our Centre of Professional Learning and Education (CPLE). You can study for a Certificate III qualification to kickstart your journey as an educator and earn a full-time income at the same time working and training on the job in our child care and education centres. There are also casual job opportunities available such as in Out of School Hours Care services as well as Disability services which do not require qualifications to get started.
