Aged Care Recruitment

Austra Health takes a strategic partnership approach to recruitment and workforce solutions to address the unique challenges faced by the aged care sector. By spending the time to gain a better understanding of your business objectives, we are able to provide tailored solutions.

Aged Care Recruitment

Austra Health has a strong reputation for providing comprehensive services that minimize risk and add value to organizations. Our long-term relationships with leading local and international healthcare facilities have been built on the basis of specialist expertise and leading recruiting processes. Unlike many recruiters, our consultants are not rewarded on a commission basis, which means they work as a team to provide quality services that address customer needs.

We have a passion for providing quality aged care services, underpinned by comprehensive advice on employee engagement to minimize your employment risk, ensuring as your recruitment partner we adhere to governance and statutory obligations. In addition to nursing and medical staff, we are also able to provide ancillary staff across administration, accounting, IT, human resources, construction, engineering, maintenance, and facilities – as part of the Bayside Group.
