Fighting Chance

We are looking for a values-driven, compassionate and committed Social Coordinator to join our unbeatable workforce. The team at Avenue are on a mission to build a network of coworking spaces that set a new standard for the economic and social inclusion of people with disability.

Are you passionate about supporting people with disability to join thriving microbusiness teams, work on their own business ideas as entrepreneurs, develop their individual skills and socialise with their teammates?

Do you want to be part of an innovative day program, where each day is different and the opportunities to develop your own skills are plentiful?

Avenue has coworking spaces in Frenchs Forest, Botany, Parramatta and Newcastle where our participants can join work teams, contribute to thriving microbusinesses and share in the profits, and exercise choice in which social events and activities they access in the community.
