Life at Shine

At Shine, we don't judge you or where you came from.

We’ve built a place for you to...

You’ll work with supportive experienced leaders who are invested in you. And you’ll be visible and valued for who you are and what you bring.

Achieve and grow Here, you’ll find a powerful platform for success, from our proven operating models to our award-winning Centre of Learning. You’ll discover the One Shine Way framework – your path to a career that means so much more. And you’ll be backed to seize opportunities, and trusted to deliver.

Challenge and be challenged At Shine, you’ll dare to be different, questioning and challenging the status quo. That’s how we stay ahead of the pack – for our clients, for better justice and for your remarkable career.

Our People. Their Stories.

We asked our people what you need to truly thrive here.

They said empathy, sensitivity and to be someone who deeply cares. Every day, our people challenge the status quo and stand up for the little guy. They are authentic people doing extraordinary things.

Why? Because they want to make a genuine difference in people’s lives - it’s a privilege they take seriously.
