If you’re new to aged care…

You’ll find so much opportunity to learn. You’ll learn what it takes to bring a smile to each person’s face and purpose to their day. You’ll learn how to be creative in solving problems and finding tailored solutions. You’ll learn what’s involved in keeping residents engaged and active. And you might even discover some new passions while supporting residents with diverse activities like cooking, gardening, arts, exercise classes and music.


“I feel like if you don’t take on challenges, you won’t learn anything. It’s a great experience. Then when I get older, I can pass on what I’ve learned to my kids or my friends. It keeps it interesting.”  – Annie, Service Manager, Mercy Place East Melbourne

Looking for nursing roles?

As a nurse, you’ll play a critical leadership role in ensuring our residents receive the best care possible. You’ll act as a bridge between doctors, residents, their families and the teams you work with. And you’ll savour those moments, big and small, where you know you’ve made a difference.
