Aged Care Careers

At Southern Cross Care you can be part of an organisation that really makes a difference. Our employees are the heart of our organisation, so we take you and your career seriously. And as a leading not-for-profit organisation, we offer a wide range of benefits. 

Love Your Job

At Southern Cross Care we focus on helping people to live the best life possible. We love what we do and knowing that you help to make a positive difference in people’s lives is priceless. And when our employees are happy, our residents and clients can feel it too.

Build Your Future

Southern Cross Care has been around for over 50 years, so we know that helping you build your future with us is the key to building ours.

Salary packaging options

As a not-for-profit organisation, our employees have the benefit of tax-free status on part of their salary packaging. Up to $15,900 of your salary can be used, tax free, for expenses such as your mortgage, rent, petrol, groceries or insurance. An additional $2,650 tax-free component can be used for entertainment purchases, such as eating out, taxis and even holiday accommodation. This allows you to pay less tax and maximise your take-home pay.

Diverse and inclusive

Just as our residents and clients have different faiths and preferences, our employees also reflect the diversity of the communities that we serve. We celebrate and respect diversity and welcome you for who you are regardless of your faith, ethnicity, sexual orientation and lifestyle choices.


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.

Rewards and recognition

Southern Cross Care appreciates and recognises the contribution and commitment our employees. We also celebrate our longer-serving employees, some of whom have been with us for over 35 years.

Safety at work

At Southern Cross Care your health and safety are taken very seriously and we continuously work to ensure your wellbeing. That includes our employee assistance program that can be used confidentially for any issue where you may feel you need some independent support, including a whole range of work and non-work related matters.
