About MoneyMob Talkabout

We are a values and evidence driven for-purpose organisation.

We work in the remote Indigenous communities of the APY Lands, far north SA.

We advocate, influence, build & share knowledge to tackle inequality. Our programs include the Mimili Family Wellbeing Centre, financial counselling & capability, No Interest Loans and energy efficiency education.

Our vision: Aboriginal people and communities are empowered to achieve economic wellbeing and self-determination. In this, Aboriginal people are equal partners in and co-creators of our practice.

We're a young organisation that's achieved big things. Our advocacy work on unconscionable mobile phone sales to Indigenous clients led directly to the imposition of Australia's second-largest corporate fine. This is our first project in the area of small business support, and an opportunity for you to make your mark with your finely honed skills.

At MoneyMob, you won't be bored. We're always learning, and we want you to as well. We work hard, but care about each other. Our culture is informal but smart; we value transparency, accountability, self-awareness and a thoughtful approach.
