Older Australians deserve the highest quality of care and services.
The Aged Care workforce is a critical element in the provision of quality services to older Australians.
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.
