Why work with Brain Train?

A unique culture.

When you join the growing multi-disciplinary team at Brain Train, you will immediately recognise the uniquely family orientated culture we have worked so hard to develop. This provides our team with a distinctly and highly supportive work environment that we like to think of as the best of both worlds – a national multi-disciplinary support team, balanced by an individualised therapeutic approach.

Team members talking to team members.

True cross-centre and cross-discipline collaboration, creating the genuine synergy that is possible with a mutually respectful multi-disciplinary approach and a relentless focus on optimising client outcomes, makes for an inspiring work environment.

Proactive personal AND professional development.

In addition to the competitive remuneration package you would expect from a highly regarded registered NDIS provider committed to hiring the best professionals in the market, we ‘walk the wellness talk’ with in-house yoga and mindfulness classes, team wellness stations, and a deep concern for proactively managing work / life balance.

A career at Brain Train is more than just a job! It’s an opportunity to join a community of like-minded professionals committed to making a positive difference in the lives of children and adults with autism and neurodevelopmental differences.
