Looking for a new job isn’t easy. Finding the right work-life balance and a role that makes a difference to the community is a tricky juggle, that’s why we’re here to help. Consider becoming a care worker. It’s a good stepping-stone to success!

Anglicare’s Care Team Manager, Susan Hynes started her career in aged care 26 years ago, as a care worker. Today, she manages a team of 200 staff.

“I worked as a care worker while I was studying and I just really enjoyed it – the interactions with different clients, the flexibility in work hours and the ability to bring positive change into someone’s life,” she says. “The little breakthrough moments where you see a tangible difference in someone’s life through care are so fulfilling.”

Top 3 benefits of becoming a care worker

1. Work flexible hours

Whether you’re a parent of school age children, a student or simply looking for a role that suits your current lifestyle, a care worker gives you the flexibility to easily work hours that suit your schedule and current situation.

2. Gain professional development opportunities

The role of a care worker is a great first step to further opportunities in aged care, including Care Team Leader, Care Trainer, Nurse and Care Case Manager, among others. Anglicare provides its care workers with the option to complete fully paid training for a Cert III.

3. Give back to your community

As a care worker, you have the opportunity to provide a helping hand to elderly people in desperate need. If you have a passion for helping people and giving back, this is the role for you.

Anglicare is currently hiring passionate care workers to join its growing team supporting elderly clients. Roles are available across Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Illawarra, Southern Highlands, New England and South Coast.

Anglicare acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the original and ongoing custodians of the lands and waters on which we live and work.

Inspired by the gospel of reconciliation in Jesus Christ, Anglicare's vision for reconciliation is a nation in which Australia's First Peoples are restored in dignity, respect, empowerment and opportunity.
