These agencies employ over 2000 people in a diverse range of careers covering a wide geographic network of services in the Hunter – Manning region.  Career paths exist in a multitude of disciplines including all aspects of education, pastoral ministry and chaplaincy, social services, financial services and business support.   

Our employees enjoy excellent working conditions including family-friendly workplaces, salary packaging, paid maternity leave for eligible employees, discounted gym and health memberships and a confidential employee assistance program.

Applicants must be willing to respect and uphold the ethos and teachings of the Catholic Church and have a commitment to our Vision and Mission. The document Integrity in the Service of the Church provides a guideline of worker’s expected principles and behaviour standards.  It may be a requirement of a few specific roles, for the applicant to be Catholic (this information will be contained in the advertisement). The majority of positions within the diocese however, do not require applicants to be Catholic.
