CSO Careers

Child Safety Officers Every child needs someone. So does every family.What if its you?

Be the someone.

The work you do here can change the trajectory of young lives for good. There will be times when you’ll be a voice for children who have none. We know that’s a big responsibility. But we also see it as a privilege—to walk alongside children and families, to keep them safe, and to help build the better futures they deserve.

We acknowledge our responsibility to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and continue to work with children, families and communities to improve our cultural capability. We provide culturally responsive services that empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families to make decisions so their children can grow up connected to identity, kin and country.

Gain deep experience, incredible personal growth and skills for a lifelong career.

People here often say no two days are the same. This work can be fast paced and complex, and there’s always more to learn. You’ll be tested personally and professionally, and you’ll grow more than you ever thought possible. So whether you continue a purposeful career here or decide to change course, you’ll be equipped with an incredible skillset that will set you up for life that only we can provide to you.

Be part of a team that lifts you up and keeps you strong.

It takes guts and heart to care this much. And our people really do—for every child, and every teammate too. You’ll never make a decision alone here and your teammates will share their knowledge, encouragement and kindness—especially when the chips are down. Our people will say you’ll never be far away from a smile, a laugh or “a coffee on me”.

We support families from all walks of life and all corners of the state.
