Make a meaningful difference with BlueCare.
We’re looking for people who want to make the world a little better through small moments that leave big impacts. To build meaningful relationships and make a difference in the lives of others.
To kickstart your aged care career, we’ve partnered with select Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) and universities to provide student placements in our community and residential aged care services, in roles ranging from personal carers to registered nurses and allied health professionals.
With your qualifications in hand, you’ll be able to form part of our big-hearted BlueCare team of highly dedicated people right across Queensland who are encouraged to grow, develop and feel empowered to make the everyday easier for the people we care so passionately about.
Vocational placement is structured learning in a real work environment so students can gain valuable aged care work experience in the practical skills required for their qualification.
Prior to placement, students will be invited to an online pre-placement briefing session. On the first day of placement, students will receive an orientation to the facility and an introduction to the organisation and the services BlueCare offers. Students will also be provided with an online handbook to support them during their stay.
With a Blue Nurses legacy dating back to 1953, BlueCare is one of Queensland’s largest and most trusted not-for-profit providers of community and in-home care, residential aged care, disability services and retirement living and is proudly part of the UnitingCare family. We’d love you to be too.
BlueCare is proud to be a diverse and inclusive employer – everybody is welcome here.
