Benefits of working with BlueCross

There are many benefits of working with BlueCross, a leading Melbourne-based service provider within the growing aged care sector.

We are committed to learning and development, and creating and enhancing capabilities and skills. At BlueCross, we offer rewarding career pathways in our three areas: residential services, home care services and corporate services. In conjunction with our education partners, we offer several professional courses, training programs and succession planning that will assist you in developing and enriching your career.
We offer flexible working arrangements with casual, part-time and full-time roles. BlueCross is a family-friendly organisation and places a strong emphasis on work/life balance. We run two corporate staff events annually – the BlueCross Staff Conference for all staff and the BlueCross Leadership Forum for our senior managers. These events focus on employee wellbeing and improved work practices while inspiring and fostering collaboration between staff. BlueCross also hosts numerous events throughout the year for special occasions, such as Christmas parties at our Central Office and throughout residential and home care services.
Our staff are our most valuable asset. We offer excellent salary packages and run an employee awards program – STARFish Awards. We encourage all staff to nominate their colleagues for STARFish Awards to recognise when they exemplify one of the STARFish Principles. These awards include a certificate and gift card to reward their contribution. There is also an annual STARFish Award winner who receives a generous travel voucher.

BlueCross employees have access to Maxxia Rewards, providing discounts and benefits across retail outlets, department stores, attractions, travel, cinema and restaurants.

Employee Wellbeing forms part of our Work Health and Safety responsibilities. Whilst safety is everyone’s responsibility, this includes all of us being mindful that we need to ensure that we care for ourselves as we care for our residents and clients.Life for most of us at times can get busy, sometimes complicated and there can be relationship, family and financial pressures. During these periods it may be good to take a breather, step back and talk to someone who is independent, but who can also offer support.This is where our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) can help to manage those personal and work-based issues that can impact on our wellbeing both at work and at home.BlueCross has engaged LifeWorks, which offers a confidential counselling service with the objective of assisting and supporting individuals.The service provided by our LifeWorks is:
