Ever since the first Blue Nurse stepped off a tram in West End in 1953 to make the very first home care visit, BlueCare’s people have been making a meaningful difference, together.

BlueCare General Manager of Business Operations, Francis McQuillan, says: “It's not just a job, it's a vocation. They're doing what they're doing because they want to make a difference on a daily basis.”

Whether visiting people in their homes, supporting people in residential aged care, providing retirement living options, or working in management, our team of big-hearted individuals empower people to live life their way.”

This means putting customers and their loved ones first, with the highest standards of care and companionship.”

“I think that our compassion and empathy from service level right through to leadership is something that I haven't seen in prior organisations where I've been,” Francis says.”

As BlueCare enables independence, choice and freedom in the people we support, we also encourage our people to grow and develop, as we empower them to do the work they care passionately about. We actively work to enhance growth opportunities for our people, flexible work, rewards, tangible benefits, and wellbeing, to enable them to be the best they can be. ”

Our employee benefits include salary packaging, discounted products and services, career development opportunities, ongoing learning and development, lifestyle flexibility, paid parental leave benefits, regional and remote support, an inclusive, values-based culture, and health and wellness programs.”

Our work can be tough at times, but it is so important. And the true team spirit of people who are all here for the same reason – to build meaningful relationships and making a difference in the lives of others – is evident.”

BlueCare Kirra’s Nathanial Tarrant says he joined BlueCare because he was looking for something to sink his teeth into and make a difference.”

“ If you're looking to start with BlueCare, you can expect a lot of hard work, but you can also expect a lot of reward as well – meeting new people and, and seeing their smile on their face,” Nathanial says. ”

It’s all about building meaningful relationships and having fun. “Aged care’s a bit more fun than people think and people realise. Everyone has a story to tell, and I really like to listen to those stories and have a laugh and joke, and really get to know them.””

BlueCare Beenleigh Registered Nurse Michelle Freeman says the fun extends to her team. ”

“Our team is the best team – you’ve got your serious part of the job but the nurses, we just all get along so well. We’re able to leave work at work and meet up for dinners and just really enjoy ourselves.” Joining BlueCare, you’ll also be welcomed as part of the UnitingCare family.
