  • You are entrusted with a high degree of autonomy and responsibility to perform your duties.
  • You will have the stability of a regular schedule of work.

The Queensland Government has a No Card, No Start policy.

This means that you can’t work with children in Queensland unless you have a valid Queensland Blue Card.

If you progress to Step 3, where we get you to run a session, by law you have to have a Blue Card.

We recommend that you apply for your blue card after your interview. Just indicate on the Blue Card application form that you are a jobseeker.

We employ coaches across South East Queensland.
