A career with CBS
We are always on the lookout for motivated, values driven people who want to make a difference in the lives of others. The nature of our industry means there is a diverse range of roles available based in the field working directly with clients or behind the scenes in the main offices.
So much of our life is spent working so we aim to make it a positive and balanced experience for you. Some of the benefits of a career with CBS are:
- Healthy work life balance and the flexibility of shift work – many of our shifts are well suited to those who don’t mind working different hours. Night shifts and sleep overs, or those shorter shifts that work when you’ve got little ones at school. There is so much more flexibility than the average 9-5 job.
- Salary packaging – this is offered to all staff at CBS and allows you to pay for certain expenses before tax is taken out of your earnings. This reduces the amount of tax you pay and has a great impact on your income. You can also enjoy tax free dining and accommodation with a meal and entertainment card!
- Our Employee Assistance Program supports you and your family if life gets a bit challenging. We provide you with 3 counselling sessions on any matter you wish to explore and it’s all completely confidential.
- Career progression- our diverse organisation means there are a wide variety of roles providing people with the opportunity to try their hat in different areas and really use those transferable skills.
