Work with us

 Empowered Lives is always looking for dynamic, passionate and recovery-focused trainers and support workers to join the team.

Whether you are already an accredited mental health first aid instructor, want to discuss ways Empowered Lives can assist you to obtain accreditation, or want to provide other mental health training and workshops, we would love to hear from you. 

We are currently looking for Accredited Mental Health First Aid Instructors, both Standard and Youth courses.

Additional course accreditations and lived experience are a bonus. 

Our ideal trainer is someone who is passionate about mental health, has an engaging presentation style, is comfortable working as a co-facilitator, and can fit into our small, relaxed team. 

We currently need a Sydney-based Instructor for one SMHFA public course per month on a Thursday & Friday from April onwards. This session would be  with a Co-facilitator. There may be opportunities to run more courses on other weekdays, weekends and provide on-site training in the future. Dates can be arranged to suit both facilitators. 

We need a YMHFA Instructor as a Sydney-based casual, running at least one public course per month, and additional in-house training as required. Dates & frequency of courses can be negotiated. There may be some travel to regional towns required. 

Expressions of interest for future work as a Co-facilitator in Melbourne are encouraged.  

If this sounds like you and would like to discuss joining our team,

call me on 0402 329 363 or send an email to
