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 employee benefits that are as inspiring and rewarding as the fantastic work they do every day. Start your career with UnitingCare today.

    We aim to advise short-listing outcomes as soon as possible. Please contact the manager responsible for the recruitment process if you have any questions about the progress of your application.

  • Q. What selection processes do you use?

    We use a variety of selection processes after reviewing your application, such as telephone screening, group interviews or assessment, individual interviews, work tests and psychometric testing. Some positions may require a medical assessment and probity screening (such as criminal history check or working with children checks).

  • Q. What should I expect when I come in for an interview?

    Generally, you would be interviewed by a panel of two or three people. Interviews are conducted in a professional and structured manner. You will be asked about your skills and experience relevant to the position, and all candidates will be asked the same questions for equity and fairness. You may be asked to undertake a work test (a task relating to the position) or prepare a response to a scenario.

  • Q. If I commence as a volunteer, could this lead to a paid job?

    Volunteering is not a formal pathway to paid employment. While you are volunteering with our organisation, you are welcome to apply for any of our advertised paid positions.

  • Q. Who can I contact if I have any questions about a career with UnitingCare?

    Please contact if you have any questions.

  • Q. What should I expect when I come in for an interview?

    You will meet the hiring manager and potentially the recruiter for the area you wish to join. The interview might be conducted by a panel – one to three members of the organisation – or take the form of a group assessment. When we confirm your interview, we will let you know which one to expect. You will be asked questions:

    • About your skills and competencies relevant to the role.
    • To understand how well you align to our organisation’s culture.

    You will also be given an understanding of the role and the opportunity to ask your own questions.

    UnitingCare uses the behavioural interview model of assessment, using behavioural interview questions. This method establishes how an individual will perform tasks associated with a role, measured against criteria or capabilities. Capabilities include behaviours, skills and knowledge an individual is expected to understand, apply and demonstrate in order to perform the role proficiently. The interviewer is seeking to find out real examples of your experience and behaviour when dealing with a certain task or capability. An example of this style of question is “Tell me about a time when…” or “Give me an example of…”

    Good luck!
