Careers

At The Junction Works, people are at the heart of what we do.

And like most not-for-profit organisations we are filled with caring people; employees who are dedicated to our mission of  'Creating new possibilities in people's lives'. 

What we do differently though, is really care about our employees, their work and life balance, their personal growth, and the skills and supports they need to do a great job and to get on in their careers.  

We actively pursue a 'no bullying' policy, and vigorously promote a culture where team members have your back.

If this sounds like the work environment you want to be in, join The Junction Works and be part of the difference.

What we offer

Salary Packaging to increase your take home pay

As a not-for-profit organisation, we are recognised by the Australian Tax Office (ATO) as a Public Benevolent Institution and as such we are afforded concessional Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) treatment. This means that eligible employees are able to take advantage of salary packaging to receive up to an additional $15,900 of their salary tax-free – making a real difference to your take home pay.

Learning and Development Opportunities

As an organisation The Junction Works is continuously growing and developing and we actively encourage our employees to do the same. We encourage and support employees to continue learning, developing further skills and increasing their competencies through the provision of in-house education and external courses.

We operate within a performance based framework and by offering regular supervision and appraisal we can discuss career goals and ensure these are met. The Junction Works' performance framework gives staff the opportunity to:

  • Discuss career goals with supervising managers
  • Identify areas for further training and development
  • Apply internally for role opportunities, which arise frequently due to our growth

Work Life Balance

The Junction Works offers flexible working opportunities and recognises that people have competing priorities outside of work due to family, study and other commitments. We support staff to manage these dual roles by offering:

  • Full time, part time and casual employment
  • Flexible start and finish times where possible
  • Carer leave and family leave
  • Flexible working arrangements

Employee Assistance Program

At The Junction Works our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available to all staff through PeopleSense by Altius.  It is a free service because we believe that less stress equals a happier and more productive workforce. Through the confidential service you can access professional advice to help cope with life's difficult issues. You can choose between face-to-face or telephone counselling during work hours.

The Junction Works has also subscribed to AltiusLife for all employees. AltiusLife is an engaging wellness platform focussing on physical, mental and social health. The platform personalises wellness by helping our employees to balance their interests and responsibilities both within the workplace and at home. There are great evidence-based articles, tips, ideas, health trackers and rewards all designed to help individuals realise their health potential.

The Junction Works is an equal opportunity employer. We actively embrace diversity, and we encourage applications from people with disability.

"Creating New Possibilities in People's Lives"

Our mission drives our determination to generate more opportunities for people with a disability, and to improve the lives of people suffering hardship and disadvantage.
