TACSI is The Australian Centre for Social Innovation. We exist to develop, test and spread innovations that change lives, with a focus in the areas of child protection, families, ageing and disability. Our ambition is to set new benchmarks for how Australia supports vulnerable people and to redefine how public purpose organisations approach innovation.

Senior Social Innovators work as part of a small interdisciplinary teams we call Social Innovation Pods, of 5-8 people. Senior Social Innovators lead projects, provide specialist expertise to projects,  build capability in your specialism (internally and externally) and contribute to growing TACSI through participation in innovation projects on TACSI itself.

There are two or three Seniors Social Innovators in each Pod. Each has a specialism in one or more of the following.

  • Design Research/Social Science Research
  • Human-centred Service and System Design
  • Social/Public Policy Development
  • Social Work and Practice

Senior Social Innovators also get support to grow themselves. 20% of their time is dedicated to learning, to deepen their specialisms and  broaden their social innovation expertise into new areas.

We’re currently recruiting for multiple positions in Adelaide and Sydney as well as accepting expression of interest for future roles.
