How McArthur Human Services makes a difference.


We have partnered with clients and candidates through both pre and post-COVID worlds, major Government policy agendas and the emergence of new Community-focused initiatives. This has given us a unique understanding of contemporary Human Services in Australia, and the ability to quickly deliver informed and effective solutions.

We see the Big Picture.

Human Services is a broad sector often with several disciplines working together to deliver integrated, often complex services to the Community. The McArthur team works across 7 key specialist areas including Alcohol and Other Drugs, Child, Youth and Family Services, Family Violence, Housing and Homelessness, International Practice and Research, Mental Health and Migrant and Refugee Support. We can see the opportunities for individual career development and diversity, and the possibilities for innovative skills application on a wider scale.
