Work with us

Passionate about promoting the dignified living of refugees, people seeking asylum and migrants in vulnerable situations? There are many ways to work with us.

Our community consists of many people.

There are a number of ways that people work with JRS Australia:

People seeking asylum, refugees and migrants in vulnerable situations: In addition to providing direct support, we also are proud to work with leaders with lived experience of seeking refuge and asylum in Australia. If you are interested in working with us, we would love to hear from you.

Staff – We have a small team of dedicated staff who all work in various ways to accompany, serve and advocate to promote the dignified living of refugees and people seeking asylum. Current vacancies are listed here.

Volunteers – Our volunteers are an integral part of what we do, and allow for us to run the many programs and projects available at our various spaces in Sydney. Learn more here.

Partners: Special partners are essential in allowing us to continue in our work in supporting people seeking asylum. We work with a range of organisations, corporations, service providers, social justice groups, religious networks, and many others. Learn more here. 

Community support: Amazing people in the community work with us to raise awareness about the issues impacting refugees and people seeking asylum. Some members of the community donate items to our community spaces, such as food, clothing, and other needed items, such as schools and other networks. Learn more on our Take Action page.

A welcoming place

The Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) Australia pursues an equal opportunity policy in the recruitment of staff, volunteers, in our partnerships, and in our community engagement work. We welcome all who share the JRS mission to serve, accompany, and advocate for the rights of all forcibly displaced peoples. This means working with those of any faith, religion, gender, race, sexual orientation or any other factor.

We look forward to hearing from you and thanks for your interest in standing with refugees, people seeking asylum and migrants in vulnerable situations.
