Why work at HomeStart?

Hear what our employees have to say about working at HomeStart.
Working at HomeStart not only gives opportunities for growth, development and learning, but equally HomeStart really cares about its staff and allows the time for work life balance when needed. You cannot put a price on that flexibility.
Elizabeth James, Business Development Manager (HomeStart employee since March 2003)
I have worked for companies in the past that have said they are all about the people, when in reality it was all about the bottom line. This is not the case at HomeStart, they really care about their employees and customers. In the recent bush fire tragedy, HomeStart called all of the affected customers individually to see if they could help. Inspirational stuff, it’s a good feeling to be a part of that kind of culture.
Mick Gardiner, Applications Developer (HomeStart employee since January 2020)
The people at HomeStart were very welcoming from the moment I walked through the door. It’s refreshing to be excited to come to work each day and rewarding knowing the work you are doing is helping South Australians buy their home. The management team are also approachable and have created an amazing work to life balance. 
Danny Sullivan, Business Process Analyst (HomeStart employee since April 2022)
HomeStart most definitely cares about the well-being and worklife balance of their employees which is very hard to find in other work places. The ability to approach the Senior Executive team including the People & Culture Team anytime and their overall friendliness makes HomeStart an incredible place to work for. Information Services is a very strong team, everyone works here as a team and operate in a way that puts collective goals ahead instead of individual glory. I am proud to return to HomeStart and love working here.
Bonnie Roy, Business Support and Test Analyst (HomeStart employee since 2019)
