CatholicCare is a rewarding place to work. 

Relationships are at the heart of why CatholicCare exists, and our relationships with our staff are equally valued.

As a values-based organisation, we attract staff who share our commitment to helping vulnerable people in the community and our passion for delivering high quality services that help our clients to achieve ‘Life to the Full’.

  • regular employee climate surveys to assess engagement with our mission, values and business plans and to obtain employee feedback on CatholicCare as a place to work
