Southern Cross Care employs Registered Nurses and Enrolled Nurses extensively in our residential are homes, our home care services and in corporate positions.

A Truly Rewarding Role

Unlike many other nursing roles, working in the aged care sector is very rewarding as you get to form meaningful connections with residents and see the ongoing positive impact that you make on their quality of life. Registered Nurses also enjoy great clinical autonomy and play a vital role in managing complex care needs. Southern Cross Care offers the opportunity to use and develop your skills, in a supportive environment with a friendly and inclusive team. 


At Southern Cross Care we know that life is about more than the time you spend at work. We’re committed to supporting you to find a healthy and happy work life balance and offer generous leave entitlements including maternity and parental leave. Are weekends important to you for personal time? Would a permanent part-time role suit you better than full-time? Speak with about finding the right balance.

Career Opportunities

Registered Nurses have access to a range of senior career opportunities. Our CEO and Head of Care Services are both Registered Nurses, as are our Regional Managers and Facility Managers.

If you’re a Registered Nurse, Enrolled Nurse, or in your 2nd/3rd year of university, we’d love to hear from you.
