Working with us is full of additional perks. Learn about all the benefits you could be entitled to.

Employment Benefits

Baptistcare is committed to providing a range of benefits for our staff that will make their lives a little easier.

With this in mind, we have partnered with several businesses to present you with competitive deals on some products and services you might enjoy.

We are continuing to develop our Employee Benefits program, and will keep you informed as new products come online. For now, the options include:


Extra tax-free income

Salary Packaging

One of the benefits of working for a not-for-profit organisation like Baptistcare is the ability to have up to $15,899 of your income made available to you tax-free. This benefit is available to all our permanent staff through our salary packaging provider AccessPay.

Here’s how it works:

  • You nominate a portion of your salary to be deducted by our salary packaging provider each payday.
  • You can use this tax-free money to pay for an approved range of everyday expenses, such as loan/mortgage payments, grocery, fuel, or even entertainment.
  • Income tax will only apply to the amount of your salary that remains after these deductions.

Less income tax means an increase in your take-home salary – more money in your pocket!

For more information, you can contact an AccessPay representative on 1300 133 697 or via email. Alternatively, you can visit the AccessPay website.
