Trainee Carer – New program invitation

  • by

Bupa is growing its own talent and dedicated to develop our team members. This is an opportunity to undertake one of our new Carer Traineeship roles at select Bupa Aged Care homes across Australia.

These new roles are full time and include formal training and on-the job supports, leading to a qualification outcome in Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing).

Bupa will support your training, including paying for your education, assessment and qualification outcome. Upon successful completion of the Traineeship, you will be awarded a Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) qualification and potentially an ongoing job as a Carer with Bupa.

The formal training component will be run in conjunction with a valued training partner and will involve a mix of remote based learning (online modules; videos etc.), face to face instruction and on the job assessment. All training will be designed and conducted to reflect the requirements of your new role as a Trainee Carer at Bupa.

Upon completion of the traineeship (up to one year), you may transition into a full-time Carer role within the care home.

As a team member at Bupa Aged Care you will embrace and share our values of being Brave, Caring and Responsible. If you are passionate about aged care, empathetic, and nurturing then one of these opportunities may be perfect for starting your career with Bupa Aged Care.

In order to be eligible, you will need to have valid work rights in Australia and be either an Australian Citizen, a permanent resident or have a visa that is valid for the duration of the traineeship.
