The Goldfields-Esperance is renowned for it’s lifestyle, friendly people and great sense of community, combined with excellent facilities. From Esperance in the South to the Ngaanyatjarra Lands in the North, this expansive region is home to outback adventures waiting to be discovered, stunning white sandy beaches and welcoming and supportive communities.
But it’s not all about the lifestyle … there’s challenging work too. If you want to live in our region and at the same time help us provide important government services to our most vulnerable people, then you have been introduced to your new job.
