What our employees say:

- Stephanie, Case Worker

“I add value through working at Evolve Housing as I am able to provide clients with stable and safe accommodation in order for them to reach their full potential in life. I provide client and tenancy support to help young people develop their independence and enable them to grow in life. I add value as I help young people build confidence and life skills to enable them to move into private rental market and stay out of further homelessness.” 

- Caroline, Case Worker

“I empathise with the young people I work with. Many of them have had challenging backgrounds and experiences. As a result I achieve trusting professional relationships with my clients” 

- Stacy, Team Leader EchoRealty

“As a Team Leader I manage a small team who complete property administration tasks including tenant application processing, portfolio management, liaising with landlords and tenants, routine inspections and repairs and maintenance. I thoroughly enjoy the fast pace and variety of my role. No two days are alike, which I thrive on.

I derive a lot of personal satisfaction from being able to help people get into a home and working with my team to ensure the process is a smooth journey for residents from start to finish. I am able to meet some wonderful and diverse people and get them established into their new life within the community. 

Evolve Housing has provided me with fantastic opportunities both with my career and with being involved in interesting projects. I started in Property Management and have recently taken on a People Leader role. My new role provides me with the opportunity to develop my communication and leadership skills. I am also continuing my education and am currently completing my Real Estate Licence.”

- Carrie Ann, Housing Manager

“I have been a part of the Evolve Housing family for 18 months now since moving here from the UK.

In my role I strive to support tenants in all aspects of their housing journey with us from the initial sign up and beyond, depending on the tenants individual needs.

I feel that Evolve are an organisation with a clear community conscience who always have the needs of the tenants and striving for the best possible outcomes for them as their focus.

I am very well supported within my team and feel that there is a great positive atmosphere where you are encouraged to develop as a professional and recognised for your achievements.

It’s really a great place to work with a fab atmosphere!” 

- Shahn, Case Worker

“I find myself very fortunate to be working for Evolve Housing for over 5 years. I strive to be honest, respectable and a good example in our community as a representative of Evolve Housing.  I enjoy my role as a youth case worker and supporting young people participate in the living skills programs we have created. I have witnessed positive stories including supporting a young person move into longer term housing options and allowing him to continue on with his studies which will hopefully lead him into the profession of community service.”
