Careers at AbSec
Job vacancies with AbSec will be listed here. If no jobs are listed, this means there are currently no vacancies.
Please note that, as of 15 June 2013, all new staff working in any child-related role must come with a current Working with Children Check prior to commencement.
A Working With Children Check is a prerequisite for anyone in paid or voluntary child-related work in NSW. The process involves a national police check and a review of findings of misconduct. The result is either a clearance to work with children for five years or a bar against working with children. Barred applicants may not work or volunteer with children.
A Working With Children Check is one of the tools available to keep children safe. Having good child-safe policies and practices also helps to create safer environments for children.
