Make Their Story Part of Your Story...
Aged services is a far more diverse industry than many people realise.
While nurses and carers are integral elements, the stereotypical image of a nurse or carer helping an older person in a residential facility is just a tiny glimpse of the overall picture.
Career opportunities are available in a range of fields and professions ,including finance, human resources, marketing, occupational therapy, hospitality, office administration, maintenance, IT and event management, just to name a few.
The Workforce Hub has career information and training opportunities across a number of different disciplines and areas, and we encourage you to browse the website and learn more about the industry and our workforce.
Older Queenslanders deserve the highest quality of care and services. Come and join us as we continue to deliver it.
