Are you ready to join our team?

Working at Hear and Say comes with rewarding experiences and opportunities to grow your career, personally and professionally. And it’s not every day you get to watch a baby hear for the first time!  

You might be working with children or adults who have hearing loss, screening the hearing of kids in schools, part of our professional development and training or a little bit more behind the scenes in a vital corporate role.

We pride ourselves on excellence and care about the wellbeing of our team. We offer:

  • Not-for-profit salary packaging benefits
  • Flexible work options
  • Employee Assistance Program for staff and their immediate family members
  • Professional development opportunities
  • Free onsite parking at our Ashgrove, Toowoomba, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast sites
  • Paid maternity and paternity leave

“The best part of my job is being on the hearing journey with the families. I get to know them very well and watch the children grow from babies born deaf to children attending Prep with their friends. There are not many jobs where I would have such wonderful interactions with the families. That is why I have been at Hear and Say for over eight years!”

Tania Kennedy, Business Support

Our recruitment process

Hear and Say recruits employees for attitude and culture first and foremost and on the basis of merit. Here is a bit of a guide to what recruitment looks like for us.

Before applying we encourage you to:

  • Check out the job ad and selection criteria to see if the role is right for you.
  • Learn more about Hear and Say – are our values and culture are a good fit for you?
  • Send us a one-page cover letter outlining why you’re interested and suited to the role alongside your resume.

Your application will be reviewed against the requirements of the role. Depending on the role and size of the candidate pool, this stage may include a preliminary interview (via phone or Zoom) to help out with shortlisting.

Prior to your interview, you will be asked to complete some assessments that will help us understand your unique mix of skills, motivations, and passions.

If you’re shortlisted, you’ll be invited in for a face-to-face or digital interview.

If you’re being considered for the role, we’ll seek your consent to contact your referees. Reference checks will be completed prior to offering you employment.

As a Hear and Say employee you must have a Blue Card (working with children check) and Yellow Card (disability worker screening) or a willingness to obtain these. We may also undertake right to work checks, psychometric, aptitude and other forms of testing.

All staff are also required to have current immunisation against COVID-19.

If successful, you’ll be offered the role verbally, followed by a written offer of employment.

"I’ve had the privilege of working with children with hearing loss and their families since 2003. Watching a child grow, learn and develop, is truly inspirational and makes my job such a pleasure. Children with hearing loss can achieve their dreams and it’s a delight to help them on their journey."

Liza Bowen, Audiologist and Listening and Spoken Language Therapist
