Australian Unity

Healthcare & Social Assistance

It’s an exciting time to be joining Australian Unity – we have grown significantly over recent years and are transforming to capitalise on further growth opportunities to help our customers and employees thrive.

We operate with commercial principles and with a strong social purpose to create community value. Australian Unity is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

Established in 1840, we’re Australia’s first member-owned wellbeing company, delivering health, wealth and living services. We’re committed to real wellbeing for all Australians, and for us, real wellbeing means so much more than physical health. It’s about your standard of living and feeling safe in your home. It’s your personal relationships and being connected to your community. It’s about what you want to achieve in life, while having the security to get out and do what makes you happy.

Being a member-owned company—also called a mutual— means we’re owned by our members, not shareholders. That gives us the freedom to invest money back into the services and solutions that matter most to our members, customers and the Australian community. We can also make long-term decisions.

The issues facing Australia’s ageing population and the rise of chronic diseases are challenges that will only become more complex with time.

In addition, our multidisciplinary workforce and training options means that you can add to your skill-set and experience over time.

Better Together

At our world-class wellness precincts in Carlton, Glen Waverley, Mornington and Vermont, we practice our Better Together® approach to aged care. The Better Together at Our Place philosophy provides individual and tailored support and empowerment for each resident in a holistic and personal way.

Care companions are selected, recruited, trained and then dedicated to each household. Care companions are selected because of their personal commitment to delivering the core values of the Better Together® model of service to residents:

  • Connect
  • Respect
  • Make it Possible

Our philosophy recognises the independence and capability of each resident and provides relevant support where needed and free access for the resident to make their own daily decisions, participate in food planning, meal preparation, light housework and decisions regarding activities.

Our goal is to help each resident enjoy hobbies, interests and activities that were perhaps not possible at home alone or to learn new ones. We are committed to the view that each resident has the potential to have a great day every day. We seek to provide each resident with the opportunity for joy and genuine wellbeing and for Australian Unity to become each resident’s home away from home.
