Start your career with Mercy Health

Considering a career in Residential Aged Care?

Our homes provide an opportunity for you to apply your life skills and experience to connect with older people.

Rather than work ‘for’ an organisation, our industry-leading approach encourages a personal rapport and meaningful partnership. You will work ‘with’ people to develop enduring relationships and provide personally tailored care for each unique individual. The resident is at the centre of everything we do at Mercy Health, and you are key to making a difference in each person’s life.

You will use creativity and problem solving to provide comfort and support and to promote an active lifestyle. You will learn what it takes to bring a smile to each person’s face and purpose to their day. You will partner with residents to engage and ignite their interests: cooking, gardening, arts, exercise classes, music — it could be anything.

Working for Mercy Health is a process of innovation, cooperation, and communication; it is vital and rewarding. If you think it might be right for you, contact your local home to get the process started.

Volunteering opportunities

Alternatively, we offer a variety of rewarding opportunities to get involved as a volunteer. Enjoy flexible hours, meaningful relationships and ongoing fulfilment as you partner with residents to pursue their favourite activities.

Please note that all volunteers must undergo relevant background checks.
