Why work at SBS?

There’s a reason people work at SBS. Everyone has a story that influenced their choice to join the world’s coolest little public broadcaster. It’s why SBS employees are united in their shared purpose; to celebrate and explore diversity, and contribute to social cohesion, by creating bold, meaningful and thought-provoking content. SBS employees take pride in their work, accept and embrace those around them, and value diverse backgrounds, beliefs and opinions.


At SBS we have a unique culture that is driven by our passion for our purpose. We are audience-obsessed and we embrace difference in all that we do. We are an agile and lean organization so we don’t accept passengers along for the ride – everyone has to fully engage and play their part. We are bold and brave in our decision making and our content choices. We don’t settle for the status quo. We aim high, fail fast and learn from our mistakes. We don’t make it hard for people to do their job and we always look out for one another.
