Careers at The Centre

Staff at the centre

Thank you for your interest in pursuing a career with us.

At The Centre we work with local communities to empower individuals through participation, connections, pathways and learning.

We have a longstanding history of providing education and training within the north east, and have recently expanded our reach down the Hume to Seymour and surrounding areas.

We are a community-based organisation with strong links to Federal, State and Local Government; business and industry; schools, TAFE, and universities; community groups and organisations, building alliances and partnerships for the benefit of learners and the community.

As an organisation we encourage our clients and ourselves to be lifelong learners – this includes being curious and taking responsibility for our own learning, whether it is formal learning for the job, or learning about what each of us do here at The Centre, or learning how to productively connect with each other to achieve our vision. We achieve wonderful outcomes with our clients that are often life changing and transformational.

We encourage you to read more about our organisational culture 

The Centre encourages all people of diverse backgrounds to apply to join its team including but not limited to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI), Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD), Sex, sexuality and gender diverse (LGBTQIA+) community and those living with a disability.
