Paid Positions at Home Base

Keep an eye on this page for employment at
The Oasis Townsville

We currently have 9 employees and are going through the selection process for two more, the applications for which closed recently.


While we look first for the appropriate skills for a particular job, we also prioritise the employment of veterans and their partners. We are especially keen to support those partners who have young children and would like part-time work between school/daycare hours. 

That means, we have a bit of a turnover as partners are posted (for those whose partner is still serving)! 


We embrace that, so we'll be recruiting regularly to keep the essential positions filled.  Keep an eye on this page if you're interested in working at The Oasis Townsville.
