Be rewarded

We have a number of employee benefits that enable us to attract and retain the best employees.

Our people are the most critical component of our long-term success. So it’s no surprise how much time and effort we put into creating a comprehensive benefits package for all team members.

Our benefits are designed to take care of you and keep you healthy, whether physically, emotionally, financially or socially.



Career development

As part of our Strategic Plan, we aim to have our people at their best. We support aspiring employees through development programs and opportunities; whether by moving you up through the organisation, or by expanding your skills and experience.

Learning and development opportunities both on the job and via formal training including technical, role specific and leadership development programs are available for Barwon Health employees.


Flexible working arrangements

Looking for work/life balance? We offer staff the opportunity to balance their work and home lives, and still work in an environment they enjoy and want to be a part of. You can work full or part-time, casual or even night shift to achieve your personal and professional goals.

Accrued days off, paid paternity/maternity leave, mothers' room and some onsite parking are among the benefits of joining the Barwon Health team.

Salary packaging

Under Australian Taxation Legislation, Barwon Health is able to offer employees the opportunity to access tax concessions via Salary Packaging.

When Barwon Health employees salary package, they reduce their taxable income, therefore increasing their take-home pay, as Salary Packaging allows employees to pay for certain items from their pre-tax salary.

At Barwon Health, we offer a wide range of Salary Packaging options including:
• Capped Living Expenses 
• Non-capped Living Expenses

Employees of Barwon Health can find out more about the Salary Packaging options offered to them by visiting the Human Resources/Salary Packaging link on the Barwon Health intranet site, or by going to the Salary Packaging website.
