Work with us

54 reasons is place where you'll feel valued, belong and make a difference for children. Read below to find out more about working with us.

Not your
typical 9-5

54 reasons might look like a regular not-for-profit, but the culture is different. Seriously. It's a place where courage, curiosity and care come take centre stage. Where people express their passion for supporting kids through policy, practice and playtime (which, let's face it, is the best time.) It's the type of place where people help by listening and learning, not by telling. And when something happens that's beyond anyone's control - fires, floods, you name it - our team is there when no one else is.

We're proudly part of the Save the Children Australia group, championing children's rights in Australia.

Why we love it here

Here’s what some of our talented people say it’s like to work with 54 reasons and what you can expect from a career with us.

54 reasons is a supportive work environment that fosters reflective practice and many opportunities for skill development and learning

Amanda M

Team Leader — Children and Parenting Programs, Tasmania

Our services are so deeply embedded with ensuring children have a voice and an understanding of their rights. This work is rewarding and has proven to have a very real impact on the lives of the children we work with

Callan H

Regional Manager — Perth Metro & Pilbara, Western Australia

What I like about my job is when everyone pulls together - we can make such a huge impact to so many children, young people and families"

Lyn G

Senior Administration Officer, Vic, NSW, SA

One of my favourite parts [of the job] is watching the children grow and their confidence grow from first coming to our playgroup, being really shy, apprehensive children to then coming in...and really taking that ownership of our group.


Family Support Specialist, Murrumbidgee Region, NSW
