About working for SHINE for Kids

SHINE for Kids is a registered not-for-profit organisation that has been supporting children and families of prisoners for over 30 years. SHINE for Kids has a firm belief in the power of early intervention and a focus on collaboration to reduce the negative effects of parental imprisonment on children and young people.

We support children, facilitate hope; inspire kids to reach their potential; nurture their growth; empower them to succeed.

Through the provision of support services across NSW, ACT, Victoria and Queensland, we work to ensure that the next generation of children avoids serving time in the criminal justice system.

  • SHINE for Kids provides flexible and best practice working conditions including attractive salary packing benefits and professional support.
  • SHINE for Kids is an equal opportunity employer and encourages and welcomes applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
