Meaningful work

We're a unique community of talented people who are guided by a shared goal.

Ours is a culture of inspiration and motivation - we ensure our team members see the impact of their everyday work.

Through our 'Get Connected' program, team members spend one day per quarter connecting with Starlight children and their families through our Starlight Express Rooms, Livewire or Wishgranting programs.

This guarantees that Starlight's mission is never far from our thoughts.

It's why we get out of bed each day with a deep sense of purpose – we know the work we do is meaningful.

Inspired leadership

From our CEO Louise Baxter to our national and state advisory boards to each individual team member, we believe great leadership at an individual level is the reason why we are one of Australia's most influential and trusted children's charities.

We invest in our people and our managers so they can engage, motivate and effectively lead those around them.

We seek out people with outstanding leadership qualities who encourage learning, development and mentorship to ensure Starlight will thrive well into the future.


Exceptional talent

Ours is a culture that encourages achievement and personal satisfaction.

We are committed to investing in our people through coaching and development so they can continue to grow and succeed.

High levels of performance are par for the course at Starlight because we take time to thank people, recognise and celebrate their achievements and challenge and encourage each other to achieve even more.

We support our people to maintain a healthy work/life balance and where practical, enable them to work in flexible ways.
