People helping people

It’s at the heart of everything we do, and has been for more than 100 years. And while each of our 400 locations offers unique challenges and rewards, our 15,000 staff and 9,000 volunteers are all united by a single goal – to help improve the lives of people in communities across Queensland (even those with co-ordinates instead of an address).

 

We’re looking for passionate individuals who share our values, and are driven to make a real difference in the lives of those who need it most – including the elderly, people with disabilities, children, families and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We’ll take care of you, too

Our people mean the world to us, and we do everything we can to ensure they enjoy opportunities and benefits that are as inspiring and rewarding as the fantastic work they do every day.

Diversity

At UnitingCare we celebrate and believe in the strength of a diverse and inclusive workforce to help us achieve the best outcomes for the people we support. The people we support as well as our workforce are diverse in race, gender, age, cultural background, language, religion, sexuality, abilities, interests and choices. We connect with and support communities far and wide across Queensland. We respect diversity in all forms of interactions with the people we support, their families and with our volunteers and employees.

Reconciliation

UnitingCare is committed to Reconciliation and through our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), we are working on initiatives in the areas of equal opportunity, cultural awareness, cultural capability, inclusion and community engagement. Working in respectful partnerships with Indigenous communities, our aim is to constructively and practically make a difference in the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people we support and their communities.
