A Career at St Joseph’s Family Services (SJFS)

There are many career pathways at our family services centres as we are under the Parish umbrella. This means you can work in child care, aged care or within many other services provided. We encourage our staff to explore their aspirations and enjoy the many benefits our large organisation has to offer.

Our staff are given room to expand their interests and experience as well as collaboratively sharing insights to others within the Parish. For example, our teams at SJFS have the opportunity to participate in groups about policy, sustainability, technology or other special interests. Meeting together with other services at the Parish to strive for better overall outcomes, as well as gaining invaluable experience. Not to mention meeting new people with shared interests and forming new friendships.

Hear what Julie, our part-time room leader, has to say about what it’s like to work at St Joseph’s Family Services.

When it comes to making new friends, our daycare culture encourages and supports teams to help each other out. Creating social groups at work who can enjoy a laugh during the day and then share insights or challenges at the end of the day with constructive debriefs.

The Parish is particularly keen to provide staff development in all service areas. And as such provide opportunities for our teams to keep growing and learning on the job.

If you’re looking for a challenging and super rewarding job with excellent career development opportunities, then perhaps consider working for St Agnes’ Parish.
