QCS is a values led organisation. We are proud of our QCS culture, a set of values that are shared by everyone in the company. These values are what got us to where we are, from a £30k a year business in the UK, into a business that supports thousands of Care providers. These are also the values that will help us achieve our long-term goal of helping 3 million people a day enjoy a better quality of life.
We believe everything we do should revolve around these core values:
Do the Right Thing - Make it Better - Play for the Team - Get it Done

This is a permanent opportunity and will grow as the organisation grows but will remain as direct strategic support to the CEO.
Primary work location is the company office in Norwest, Australia, with some opportunities to work from home. Start and finish times are flexible and QCS supports flexible and remote working with our Everyday Flex policy. The Strategic Assistant will be engaged in online meetings in other time zones, including the UK, which requires some flexibility in morning or evening routine.
We are keen to receive applications from project managers, strategic leads, the start-up experienced, the curious. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the build of an organisation and the sharing of technologies to make things better.
