Work With Us

Yipirinya School is a unique and rewarding place to work, where no two days are the same. Yipirinya's operation provides opportunities for a variety of roles and skillsets across all areas of the school.

From teaching to support staff, each member of the Yipirinya School team supports our mission to effectively provide two-way learning to Aboriginal children in the community of Alice Springs (Mparntwe) and surrounds.

The school offers a great work environment with attractive salary packaging and the opportunity for annual bonuses.

Relocation assistance will be provided where applicable and subsidised quality accommodation may also be available.
