Experienced health professionals
At Estia Health, residents have access to high-quality care, provided by an experienced team of clinicians. This is the foundation of the care we offer and many of our homes are well respected and trusted by local health networks within their local communities.
Each of our homes has a Care Director that oversees all aspects of a resident’s clinical care, which includes dementia care and palliative care. They lead a team of nurses who are rostered on shift 24/7 and are support by carers and hospitality teams.
As an experienced health care professional, working in aged care is both challenging and deeply rewarding as you are providing high-level care to people at an incredibly important time in their lives. At Estia Health, we have a strong governance framework, with robust clinical frameworks in place, delivered by a national quality team of educators who support home teams with ongoing training and education.
Graduates and students
The future of Australia’s aged care sector is dependent on attracting compassionate, dedicated people looking to make a difference to older Australian’s lives. We value the diversity and experience of our employees and look to attract people that are looking to work in a purpose-led organisation, using their breadth of skills.
This includes supporting people who are just starting out in their career, by working closely with community partners such as registered training organisations offering vocational placements, including diplomas and certificates to work in aged care. In the past year, 97% of our 68 homes supported students with placements, helping them gain practical experience in a residential aged care home.
We also support graduates, including nurses, and in the past year we have secured 130 nurse graduate places as part of the government’s Aged Care Transition to Practice Program, offering graduates the opportunity to begin their professional career in a supportive learning environment, with the mentorship and guidance of our experienced teams.
At Estia Health, we embrace diversity, celebrating our employees' backgrounds, unique perspectives and experiences they bring to their roles. With 68 homes in SA, VIC, NSW and QLD, each requires an experienced team of people, passionate about delivering high-quality care to our residents. Each team works closely together as well as alongside the regional teams, and our skilled support teams based in our offices. This creates opportunities to learn and grow with us, and the potential for unique pathways as you evolve your career in aged care.
Some of our team come from a clinical care background in nursing, with an inherent passion in caring for others. As they gain experience and develop their skills, they progress through to leadership roles such as Care Directors, or Executive Directors, responsible for the overall management of our homes. Many of our team also come from a less traditional clinical background, instead bringing a range of transferrable skills from other sectors, including customer service, business and hospitality. Essential skills such as business management, customer service and great communication, all form a key part of our role to deliver quality, resident-focused care.

We greatly value our volunteers and their contribution in helping enrich and celebrate residents’ lives. With volunteers supporting over 93% of our homes, they play an important role in helping residents feel settled, helping them continue enjoying their hobbies and interests, providing companionship, cultural and spiritual support as well as being a friendly face and ear to listen.
A number of our volunteers have had a family member in one of our homes and returned as a volunteer to maintain the friendships and community they’ve built. Other volunteers come to us for work experience or a specific project. We have volunteers from all walks of life, backgrounds and demographics, which reflects our homes and our principle of embracing diversity.
We have volunteers that support gardening and cooking clubs, flower arranging, art and crafts, Men’s Sheds, knitting, translation and much more. Volunteering in our homes is a wonderful, rewarding experience, and one we’d encourage you to try.
‘Estia Health is a great place to be. The staff and the residents are all friendly and supportive to everyone. I had an awesome experience on my two weeks’ placement. The nurses were so helpful and patient teaching us things I didn’t know. Thank you, Estia Health.’- Nursing student
