Work for us
People from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds are welcome here
At Uniting, we work hard to make the world a better place for everyone, and our commitment to cultural diversity and inclusivity begins with our employees. Each staff member at Uniting is respected for their own unique talents and qualities. Just as our customers have different faiths and stories, our people also reflect the diversity of the communities we serve. We understand that speaking a second language and having the lived experience of another culture bring valuable contributions to our services, and we welcome applications from people of all cultural backgrounds to share our journey and build an inclusive organisation committed to assisting others with respect, compassion and imagination.
We’re a proud supporter of the human rights campaign ‘Racism. It stops with me’, and Uniting recently received an Outstanding Achievement award at the 2018 Cultural Diversity in Ageing Excellence Awards for ‘Excellence in Organisational Leadership’.
