The four sectors of aged care, disability, education and care (childcare) and social services make up the community services industry. It is one of the fastest growing areas of employment in Tasmania.
The community services industry is experiencing significant growth and demand. If you, or someone you know, is curious about meaningful paid or volunteer work in these expanding sectors, now is the time to explore career opportunities.
This website is here to help you understand what it’s like to work in any of these sectors and read the stories of people actively working in the industry.
Our Information Guides and FREE postcard service enable you to learn more about working in the community services industry. Download a suitable information guide, send a message to someone interested in aged care, education and care (childcare) or social services.
Why not use our FREE postcard service to thank someone in community services for their positive impact.
There’s a lot of information out there and we know it can be a little overwhelming.
That’s why we have created four information guides to assist you to find purposeful work that is a right fit for you. Each guide is specific to either aged care, disability, education and care (childcare) or social services, and includes career links and resources.
To access the guides, please provide your name, email address, postcode and your area of interest. We will send your guide by email and then follow up with additional information and to better understand what you need.
We will follow up by email no more than three times. If you need to opt out of our email series at any stage, click the unsubscribe button in the first email you receive.
