Our People

For over forty years IFYS has pursued opportunities that create change, develop awareness and strengthen the human spirit. Our vision is to research, educate and provide support services that assist people in need to reach their full potential and participate in a just society.

We recognise that to achieve our vision, it’s our people that make the difference.

To promote a culture of excellence we ensure:

  • We value and respect the diversity of our staff, foster carers, and volunteers.
  • Our leaders foster collaboration and harness the collective knowledge and experience of our people.
  • Our people are supported and encouraged to fulfil their potential.
  • Leaders are accountable for setting the standard and promoting contemporary and innovative practice.
  • We are committed to providing tailored training to empower, focus and engage our people.
  • Our staff, foster carers and volunteers will be afforded safe systems of work.
  • We will adapt and evolve through strengthening the resilience of our teams.

We’re about people - this means not only supporting those who access our services to thrive, but also our dedicated and passionate staff. Whether it's excellent work/life balance, continuous professional development, or looking to work in an inspiring environment, IFYS has opportunities for everyone to excel.
