Why work with us?

We work almost entirely remotely. We have an office in the Brisbane CBD and will meet there from time to time, but much of our work is conducted from home or sometimes from a client’s premises. We have clients throughout the country. We are a small, close knit team. You won’t just be a number, but an important member of the team making a contribution to the overall success of the business.

Want to work part time or flexible hours? No problem! We believe in flexible working arrangements that provide the right work / life balance for our team members. You will have the opportunity to work with a variety of clients, dependent on your background and skill set.

Don’t live in Brisbane? Not necessarily a problem, depending on your level of experience and skills. More junior roles would need to be Brisbane based but Senior Privacy Consultants with hands-on experience and qualifications could easily be based in Melbourne or Sydney.
