Would you like to help create new futures for young people?

Join Brisbane Youth Service today to make a difference in the lives of Brisbane’s vulnerable young people and their families.

Brisbane Youth Service is a medium-sized incorporated association providing holistic responses to vulnerable young people (aged 12 – 25 years) and young families who are experiencing homelessness or are at-risk of becoming homeless.

We know diversity makes a positive difference, and we encourage people from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander backgrounds with relevant experience to apply.

BYS promotes work-life balance and provides a supportive team environment and additional benefits such as salary packaging arrangements and a generous five weeks annual leave per year.


The Opportunity

  • 1 x Hub Intake and Brief Intervention Worker – Full time
  • 1 x Housing Support Worker – Full time until 30 June 2019

Brisbane Youth Service is working with Aboriginal Employment Strategies (AES) to recruit and support two new identified positions.  One position will work in our Fortitude Valley HUB team and the other with our Housing & Tenancy Support team in Carina.

Brisbane Youth Services’ vision for reconciliation is a just society which respects the history, rights, cultures and traditions of Australia’s First Peoples.  We are committed to delivering services and programs for young people which help close the gap.  Approximately 20 percent of the young people we work with identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander. We know diversity makes a positive difference, and we encourage people from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander backgrounds with relevant experience to apply.
