TACSI is a fast-paced environment where people from diverse disciplines, ages and experiences come together to tackle complex social issues and build the conditions for social innovation – all while helping each other learn and grow.

Joining TACSI means joining one of the longest standing social innovation teams in the world, which is the product of many multidisciplinary doers and thinkers who have shaped, contributed to and influenced TACSI.

We’re working on disrupting disadvantage, further self-determination, redesign ageing, activating social health and building the conditions for social innovation in Australia.

Working at TACSI

Could you see yourself working as part of a team designing new services with people living with disability? Adapting an international model of early years education to work in Tasmania, or working with a regional community to determine how to improve mental wellbeing in their town? Supporting an Aboriginal-led organisation to develop an Aboriginal justice strategy, or influencing national policy on housing for older people? Or how about leading a strategy to build the social innovation ecosystem in Australia, or shifting cultural norms around death and dying in Australia?

TACSI’s work spans practice, services, commissioning, strategy, policy and systems. We work with not-for-profits, with government, with philanthropy, with for-purpose businesses and community controlled organisations. We take on projects that tackle the big issues organisations are facing right now, and we lead long term strategic projects that try to reset the direction of life in Australia. We operate as a consultancy, we lead long-term systems change initiatives, and we scale social ventures.

TACSI was founded in Adelaide with seed funding from the South Australian Government to continue the state’s strong tradition of social innovation. We run most of our national projects from Adelaide and it’s where our CEO and Chief Innovation Officer are based, on the top floor of a former primary school in the CBD with views out to the hills. Here’s a short guide to Adelaide put together by our team.


TACSI Sydney is three years old and still growing. We have a strong body of work across NSW and Queensland, including rural New South Wales. We’re located on the edge of the CBD, our offices are not fancy, our views are not fantastic, but we can offer amazing people doing great work.


For years, we’ve been doing some of our most progressive work with partners in Melbourne. Now, when we find the right team, we’re looking to establish a footprint in the city. We’re particularly looking for people with strong connections and relationships within Melbourne and across Victoria.
