Work For Us

Join our team of changemakers

A role with Foundations Care. Is a role with purpose.

In order to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and young people, we need a work culture like no other and team of changemakers, passionate about the protection of children, who feel proud to call Foundations Care home.

A Culture like no other

Foundations Care strives for a culture of continuous improvement designed to challenge and empower our people and foster their professional development to result in leading client outcomes.

Our success comes from great teamwork and exceptional individual effort, so we strive to reward collaboration and the pursuit of excellence.

Our growth depends on building deep, long-lasting client relationships and putting them at the centre of all we aspire to do. We are at our very best when our geographies, practices, specialties and client teams work together on our clients’ behalf.

We celebrate diversity and inclusion —of culture, of background, of experience and thought —and recognise it as a key to our ability to deliver insightful and creative client outcomes. We recognise the need for our people to balance and integrate their work and personal lives in order to be the best they can be both personally and professionally.

Our leaders inspire and in turn, our people are afforded the opportunity to learn and grow. We retain the relational values that have shaped our culture since Foundations Care’s inception, and we relish our heritage as one of the industry’s longstanding thought leaders and trusted partners.

Our values

Our values serve as a compass for our actions, decision and behaviours. The company exists to serve the needs of the community and individuals through:

Respect for the individual
Boundless possibilities
Excellence
Innovation
