Our
People

Our people are at the core of the work we do and the difference we make to the lives of others.

Our team members are passionate and work for US to make a real and sustainable difference in  the communities in which we operate. We offer flexible working arrangements, a collaborative culture, individualised training and development opportunities, and a range of lifestyle, financial and wellbeing benefits.

Our workforce

Our recruitment processes are centred on ensuring new team members are a cultural fit with our organisation, their prospective teams, and align with our overarching mission, vision and values.

Employee Agreements

Our workforce is covered predominantly under the Social Community Homecare and Disability Services Award (SCHADS) and Health Professionals and Support Services (HPSS) Award and governed by the National Employment Standards (NES) to ensure parity consistency across the programs and regions we operate in.

Blue Cards and Licensed Care Services checks

All our employees, students, volunteers and board members are required to have a positive Blue Card issued and a Licensed Care Services check. We closely monitor this compliance requirement to ensure these checks do not expire. Blue Cards need to be renewed every three years, and Licensed Care Services checks need to be renewed every two years.

The Blue Card check is a key prevention and monitoring system of people working with children and young people in Queensland.

Training and Development

We are continually developing our team members and offering training and professional development opportunities not only through a range of focus area training workshops, but also through our Employee Development Program to ensure we have a highly skilled workforce, who can provide optimal care, support and guidance to those we help.

To facilitate this, we encourage our team members to identify areas for development, future career aspirations and training opportunities.

Employee Benefits

The emotional and physical wellbeing of Our People is incredibly important to us.

Our Employee Benefits & Wellbeing  program aims to provide a range of supports and initiatives to foster personal wellbeing and to also bring some fun into our workforce.

It includes special offers from businesses in our communities across:
