About INS

INS – In No-one’s Shadow

Who Is INS?

INS was established in 2011. Since our doors opened, we have worked closely with governments, businesses and individuals right across Australia.

Our name, INS, stands for “In No-one’s Shadow”. We support people and organisations to be all they can be and to shine their light. It is our driving force. We are always looking for ways to do things better for both clients, and our team.

Why We Do What We Do

At INS, we believe in the opportunity to create workforces for the future. All the while being a formidable force for good. We do this by delivering strategic, integrated and practical HR and career management solutions. And we develop these with your organisational structure, people, and processes in mind.

We believe that you can be a successful organisation of any size while making a difference to the community. INS donate 10% of all our profits to charity, and we match staff donations. So, by working with us you too are being a formidable force for good.

Our Value

We are a formidable force for good

We are passionate about making a positive and sustained difference to our world. We have built a strong community that appreciates and supports each other and makes time to play and honour all parts of our lives – it makes us better at what we do.

We stand in no one’s shadow

We show and share our excitement, enthusiasm, and commitment in helping clients and each other shine.

We are authentic and courageous

We are truthful and transparent in all our dealings and won’t shy away from the difficult when it’s the right thing to do.

We believe in renewal and transformation

We adapt what we do and how we do it to provide better outcomes for all our clients.

We make it happen

When situations arise, we pull together delivering the almost impossible for the good of our clients.


It takes a village. At INS we value difference and recognise the depth and colour it brings to our lives and our workplace.

We support each person to shine and to stand in no one’s shadow. When things are wonky, we recalibrate and believe in each other’s positive intent. We do not accept discrimination, harassment, bullying or exclusion, at any time, for any reason.

We are courageous in our belief of inclusion no matter what. There are no bystanders, and each of us is responsible to speak out if we see behaviour that is contrary to our values.
