Training and development

We have a strong track record of developing talented individuals to be able to achieve their potential within Baptistcare. Our leaders are driven to identify development opportunities for their people and support individuals to plan their career and explore pathways within our organisation.


Salary Packaging

One of the benefits of working for a not-for-profit organisation like Baptistcare is the ability to have up to $15,899 of your income made available to you tax-free. This benefit is available to all our permanent staff through our salary packaging provider AccessPay.

Here’s how it works:

  • You nominate a portion of your salary to be deducted by our salary packaging provider each payday.
  • You can use this tax-free money to pay for an approved range of everyday expenses, such as loan/mortgage payments, grocery, fuel, or even entertainment.
  • Income tax will only apply to the amount of your salary that remains after these deductions.

Less income tax means an increase in your take-home salary – more money in your pocket!

For more information, you can contact an AccessPay representative on 1300 133 697 or via email. Alternatively, you can visit the AccessPay website.

Organisations partnering with PeopleSense to offer the Employee Assistance Program find the service to be an invaluable support to their employees.

The thing I love about my work is being able to help our customers to maintain their involvement and to feel included within their community.  I love working with an awesome team.

I get to assist people to maintain their dignity and their independence when they are feeling vulnerable. I love the relationships I get to create. We give purpose, support and understanding and are compassionate. We give our customers a sense of ‘place’.
