More than just a job

The work we do at Communities is complex, important and meaningful. Every day we have the chance to change the lives of Western Australians for the better. Our values are at the heart of everything that we do. We work for the people who make up our communities, focus our efforts on building inclusive and connected places where people can prosper, and support children and families so that they can have a place to call home. 

Our employees are passionate and caring people from diverse backgrounds who are committed to making a difference. The more diverse and inclusive our internal community is, the more unique perspectives and bright ideas we share. We deliver on our mission to create pathways that enable the wellbeing of Western Australian individuals, families and communities through the power of inclusion and diversity. 

We offer an equally diverse range of careers from social housing and child protection, to policy and service design, finance, human resources, governance, information technology and communications. There are days when the job is difficult, but even on those days we’re making a difference. We’re proud of our dedicated and professional staff and the work that we do.
