Work with us

A regional lifestyle.

There's nothing quite like it!

Trade in the city life and become a local. 

Have you ever found yourself sitting in City traffic dreaming of the open road, astounding views of nature whilst having the perfect work-life balance? Don't let the clock tick by and make the move to one of our beautiful regional locations. 

Ask any local and they'll tell you that there's nothing quite like a regional lifestyle. The promise of more balance, where the five minute drive to work leaves you enough time in the day to enjoy nature, exercise, and spending time with those who matter most - our family and friends. 

Whatever region you choose, you'll be welcomed with open arms by the friendly residents who will make you feel right at home. From sporting and hobby clubs, live music, arts and events, shopping, cafes, restaurants and local attractions, you'll find everything you need just a stone's throw away from home. 

So, make the move and become part of a safe and thriving community.

‘What I love most is the staff and students. I’ve worked at CRTAFE for a while and moved through different roles. This has helped me learn a lot both personally and professionally and I have grown. Every single new intake of students brings different challenges which forces me to come out my comfort zone, so they’re not only growing but so am I’.
