Have you ever thought:
“There must be more to work?”
We believe in more.
The Foundation is where people who are passionate about things like social justice, health equity and community empowerment come together. We see the strength and potential in everyone - our communities, our staff and our organisation. At the Foundation you won’t just work with us, you will help to make us better.
We aren’t fixing problems, we are finding solutions.

We believe in you.
At the Foundation you can be your authentic self. We believe that different people from different backgrounds help us to be better. That’s why we are committed to inclusion, diversity, flexibility and belonging. We welcome you for who you are.
Our values are not what we say we do, it is what we do.
We believe in passion.
We work with people who thrive because they are passionate about what they do, not because someone is looking over their shoulder. There are thousands of challenges out there to address. Whether it is climate change, Aboriginal health, LGBTQI+ equity, dignity in ageing or improving outcomes for neurodiverse kids - if you have a passion for positive change, and it can help to advance our strategic agenda for disadvantaged communities, then we want to know.
My child has special needs. At the Foundation I have been given the flexibility to care for him, and the Foundation backed me to run a project on childhood neurodiversity.
We believe in flexibility.
We trust you to do the right thing, which is why we put flexibility and honesty at the heart of everything we do. Many of our jobs can be done from home. Maybe you want to refresh your batteries by working for a month down the coast, or overseas. Or maybe you need more flexible hours, or days, to better balance your life and work commitments. Or maybe you would like to do a few days work on Telehealth, and a few in a clinic. In addition to our employee benefits, tax concessions on fringe benefits, staff purchasing arrangements for EV and PHEV vehicles and the amazing people you work with - we will work with you to find the flexibility that is possible in your role, helping you to achieve the right work/life balance and allowing us all to be the best we can be.

Community is at the heart of everything we do. My views as a staff member, and the views of my community, actually mean something here.
Aboriginal Health Worker
We believe in impact.
In everything we do, we consider our impact — on our environment, community, work mates and planet. The footprint we want to leave on our world is not carbon and ecological degradation, but empowered communities, resilient systems and healthier people. The same innovative thinking that goes into the design of our systems, goes into all the issues we care about including accessibility and equity.
