Shine bright for sick kids

Starlight team members come from all walks of life and share a common goal to bring happiness to seriously ill children and their families.

It’s what drives our actions every day and what makes Starlight such an inspiring and meaningful place to progress your career.

One of the best parts of being on the Starlight team? Seeing the impact we make every day.

Through our 'Get Connected' program, team members spend one day per quarter connecting with Starlight children and their families through our Starlight Express Rooms, Livewire or Wishgranting programs.

This guarantees that Starlight's mission is never far from our thoughts.

Together, our people create a vibrant and positive culture that recognises and celebrates growth and achievement.

But the rest of us are genuine Earthlings.

We’re a diverse, talented team who are united in our mission to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families. While our mission is at the forefront of what we do, Starlight is also a unique and rewarding workplace with impressive career opportunities.
