Living and working in Queensland's regional, rural and remote communities can provide a unique and affordable lifestyle where there's no shortage of career opportunities and not as much competition for skilled and professional jobs as there is in the bigger cities.

The richness of regional living has always been a quiet secret that country people share with each other. You'll enjoy beautiful scenery of country or coast, lower cost of living, a slower pace of daily life, better work-life balance and all the perks that being a part of a vibrant community brings.

Our child safety service centres are located across Queensland in metropolitan, regional and remote locations. When you apply for a Child Safety Officer position, we'll ask you to select the locations you're most interested in.
