There are definitive reasons why a person works at SBS.

Everyone has a story that influenced their choice to work at an inspirational and world-changing organisation like SBS. Perhaps it was because SBS was what their parents listened to on the radio when arriving from a new country, as it reminded them of home. Maybe they’ve seen hardships in foreign countries and it’s changed the way they see the world. It may have been the first channel they watched where the content they viewed was relatable to them and their life in Australia. Or maybe they just want to make Australia a better place and SBS is a network that allows them to do this. Whatever it is, it made enough of an impact on them to want to make a meaningful impact in their job.

Through SBS Radio, SBS Television and SBS Online, we tell the stories of humankind in more languages than any other broadcaster in the world; at last count, 68 languages on radio, more than 60 on television and more than 50 online. Our free-to-air television offerings include SBS, SBS Viceland and SBS Food Network, pay TV offerings with World Movies and content from right across our network available 24/7 anytime and on any device via SBS On Demand.

In the 21st century, multiculturalism means more than bringing the cultures of other worlds into your home. It is reflecting back to Australians the increasingly multicultural spirit of our own community. SBS celebrates diversity and contributes to the social inclusion and cross-cultural understanding of all Australians - linguistically, sociologically and culturally.
