About our team

Since our establishment in 1957, our organisation has grown to be one of Australia’s most trusted charities.

This amazing achievement would not have been possible without the wonderful work of our people.

The staff at Guide Dogs Victoria are the backbone of the whole organisation. We are proud to have some of the most talented and experienced people in their fields as part of our team.

With more than 120 employees and 450 volunteers, we are one of the most trusted and innovative not-for-profit organisations in Australia. And, with an average tenure of almost 10 years and a satisfaction survey rating of 90%, we’re respected by our own people as much as the community.

If you have a passion for helping people, making a difference in the community, and of course love dogs, Guide Dogs Victoria could be the place for you!
