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. 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.

McKenzie employees enjoy a range of benefits and discounts through our Rewards and Recognition programs and our collaborations with external partners.

Some of the attractive benefits and discounts our people value includes:

  • Flexible hours – A work/life balance is essential and we offer flexible working hours so you can meet your family commitments.
  • National Seniors Card – Available to all employees, this card offers discounts and benefits in travel, entertainment, insurance and retail outlets.
  • Healthy Body, Healthy Mind – Our in-house health program provides employees with valuable health tips and guidance for a healthy mind and body.
  • Employee Assistance Program – We provide a free and confidential professional counselling service for your personal and workplace wellbeing.
  • Refer a friend – You know our values and what we look for in our staff, so if you refer a friend who is successfully employed by McKenzie, you’ll receive $500 in gift cards.
  • Go Beyond – A comprehensive employee Reward and Recognition program where we acknowledge and reward the wonderful work of our employees in many ways.

  • Specsavers – Employees and their families can receive discounts on frames and other services.
