Why work for us?

At Northcott, we’re proud of our respectful, supportive and friendly work environment. We celebrate our differences, and welcome a diverse workforce of passionate people who share our commitment to supporting people with disability to live the life that they choose.

If you are a person with disability we want to make sure that our systems and equipment are just right to allow you to do your job.

If you are Aboriginal or a Torres Strait Islander, we have just launched our Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan and have lots of ATSI staff and customers. We’ve boosted our benefits to support you, including paid leave for NAIDOC week. If you would like to talk to one of our ATSI staff about their experience working at Northcott, just let us know.
