Are you a passionate and experienced professional looking for a new challenge in community development? If yes, you are the perfect fit for our team at This Life

This Life is an award-winning community development organisation that believes in listening to, engaging with and advocating alongside families and communities as they define and act on their own solutions to complex social issues. This Life currently operates services and programs in four sections: Children and Families, Communities, Impact Learning and Effectiveness (ILE), Strategic Engagement, and Shared Services.
