In the engine room of all Catholic schools are the staff who support our teachers and the day-to-day running of our schools and colleges.

There are numerous non-teaching roles within our schools, ranging from office-based positions through to grounds and maintenance.

Support staff positions may include administrative and technical officers, accounts and finance, consultants, lawyers, psychologists, nurses, ICT professionals, human resources, careers counsellors, marketing and communications, enrolments, canteen managers and early childhood and childcare roles.

All our schools select and recruit their own staff, offering potential candidates choice and flexibility in finding the school that best suits their needs and preferences.

The Catholic Education Office of Western Australia employs approximately 280 staff to support the work of Catholic schools and their communities. These staff are based at Broome, Bunbury and Geraldton offices, the Catholic Education Centre in Leederville, and at a number of school-based locations in the Perth metropolitan area.

The Office employs a diverse range of staff in order to support the needs of schools, including accountants, curriculum consultants, payroll officers, gardeners, administrative and support staff, IT specialists and special needs consultants.
