Safe Places for Children offers a variety of interesting and fulfilling career opportunities. We are looking for motivated and caring staff willing to make a real difference in the lives of children and young people aged 10 to 17 years of age.

Since 2005, we have grown our operations from a small, but passionate, group of youth workers, to an organisation of local teams dedicated to supporting vulnerable young people across Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.

We are an organisation with a heart and value people who respect and do the right thing by each other. If you share our passion about making a difference in the lives of young people, we invite you to join us to be part of a like-minded team.

Benefits available to our staff

  • We offer permanent employment with flexible rosters to suit your work and life balance.

  • You’ll receive a stable wage and a guaranteed weekly income in a sector where work shifts may be unpredictable.  This means you can access the same opportunities that any other Australians on a fixed wage can, such as getting a mortgage and having peace of mind that you can pay your rent or plan for expenses.

  • You can access generous salary packaging options through Remserv to increase your take-home pay. You may be able to pay your credit card payment, rent or utility bills from your pre-tax salary, meaning you take home more in the hand each week.

  • You’ll be part of a friendly and supportive workplace, with access to 24- hour on-call support and guidance from senior youth workers during your shifts.   

  • External confidential and professional counselling when you need to talk things over.
