Encompass Community Services is recruiting and employing 40 new staff members in response to the pandemic job losses in the local region.

Encompass Community Services is a not-for-profit organisation and for
 35 years, has been committed to 
promoting equality and universal opportunity for all.

The organisation has been a leader in delivering support and community services and proudly helps to shape sustainable local communities.

Encompass CEO Elaine Robb says: “We actively engage with people that live with physical, intellectual, sensory and psychological barriers, as well as other individuals who are disadvantaged such as disengaged youth, long-term unemployed and those facing financial, social or learning barriers.

“Our aim is to end damaging stigmas and stereotypes and open doors of opportunity for all people – whatever background, whatever ability.”

Encompass is now extending its workforce, recruiting and employing 40 new staff members, which will provide much-needed employment opportunities at a time when many Australians are urgently seeking work.

Career paths within Encompass are diverse, with job opportunities across multiple disciplines, ranging from entry-level traineeships to senior management and leadership roles.

Encompass Community Services prides itself on being an equal opportunity employer, valuing equal opportunity and fairness, and enjoys a diverse and inclusive workforce.

Applications are encouraged from people with a disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent, and people of all other cultural backgrounds.

“Encompass will continue to find job opportunities and encourage people from all backgrounds and circumstances who are seeking a fulfilling and meaningful career pathway,” Elaine says.

“Encompass is doing everything it can to support jobs and the economy through this challenging time, while also ensuring it can provide the increased demand for supports.”
