Why McKenzie is such a special place to work

Once you meet the wonderful people who work at McKenzie, you’ll realise there’s something very special going on here.

When we started as a family business back in 1998, we were determined to provide the kind of aged care we’d want for our own family.

We feel the same way about the people who work with us. We consider them our ‘extended family’.  We respect the amazing work they do. We encourage them to develop and grow.
And we love to see them laughing, because we know that a smile can make someone’s day.

We’re always looking for people who share our positivity and desire for excellence, and we encourage you to apply for a position with us.

Some of the great reasons to join us

Along with fabulous people and a wonderful working environment, there are lots of other things we do that make McKenzie a great place to work...

Working with us has its rewards

Recognising and rewarding staff achievement is very important to us. We have implemented a staff reward and recognition program, including annual staff awards and presentation night, length-of-service awards, staff social events, satisfactions surveys and a commitment to teamwork and inclusion for all McKenzie staff.

Other rewards include fabulous benefits, such as:

  • Access to a platinum-rated super fund and favourable long-service leave
  • Novated leasing arrangements for permanent staff
  • Employee special deals for Europcar, Mantra’s Departure Lounge, discounts at Amcal Chempro Chemists and more
  • Free Wi-Fi access and subsidised staff meals
  • Attractive, great-value corporate uniforms

We are values-focused and have real team spirit

The length of time many of our dedicated staff members have stayed with us tells us we’re doing something right. In fact, many of our staff have been with us for more than 10 years. We foster a fun, supportive workplace culture and flexible, family-friendly rostering, because we believe a happy work environment is one that people simply want to stay in. Our core values, or Cornerstones, give us a real team spirit and ensure McKenzie is a place where everyone belongs.

We're a diverse bunch too

We actively embrace diversity in our workplace. Our staff come from different backgrounds, age groups, cultures, and our workplace and residents are enriched as a result.

We'll help you get to where you want to go

Staff at McKenzie enjoy outstanding job support and advancement opportunities. We have a comprehensive induction and workplace buddy program, and a strong professional and personal development framework, which includes a number of specialised career progression programs. We further support our staff with access to pastoral care and an Employee Assistance Program that includes fully-funded, confidential, professional counselling services. We also strongly believe in promoting from within and creating a workplace free from harassment, discrimination and bullying.

And you'll become part of our family

We may be a large (and growing) organisation, but the care we provide to our staff is individualised and based on our fundamental ‘family’ approach. Each person is encouraged to make their own unique contribution to the McKenzie community too. Showing genuine care and concern to all people within our organisation, both staff and residents, is vital. By fostering this approach, interactions are ultimately more caring and genuine – and this has a positive effect on everyone.
