We are who you are

Helping Hand’s impact comes from the compassion, care and hard work of our amazing team.

So, whoever you are and whatever your role, you’ll feel truly valued.

Our people are straight talking, all caring, and ever-striving.


Our people make us who we are. What we do and the way we do it wouldn’t be possible without the effort and compassion of every Helping Hand team member. Day after day, come rain or shine, they get in and get the job done.

They’re the people our residents, clients and their families need. People like you. We know all your dedication and persistence comes from deep within – it’s how you were born, how you were raised, or what you’ve learned from your journey.

Here’s the thing. When good people come together, amazing things happen. At Helping Hand, you’ll find real support from teammates and managers who share your values and strength. They’ve been in your shoes – and they’ll walk with you through thick and thin.

You’ll also find so much experience. Many of our people have dedicated their lives to caring for others and every day, they’ll share valuable knowledge and skills that are hard to find elsewhere.

We are where you are

Every year, we help more than 7,000 older people in homes across South Australia.

So wherever you work, you’ll know that you make a real difference in every moment.

Helping Hand exists wherever you’re offering a helping hand.

We are a leading provider of aged care in South Australia, and we’re proud of our reputation for good. But it’s not just about one place or one central office.

It’s about every residential care home we run.

It’s every client’s home.

It’s every community – your community.

It’s every life and every experience we create, together.

Wherever you’re based and whatever your role at Helping Hand, you’ll know you’re contributing directly to a community you care about. And you’ll see your impact – on the faces of the people you’re supporting and in the stories that are shared across our teams.
That connection will stay with you for life. And none of it would be possible without you being exactly where you’re supposed to be – right here, at Helping Hand.


Help us grow our impact

Find the role that fits you best


We care how you are

The better you feel, the better you can do your job.

So we’re working hard to support you and to invest in your wellbeing and your future.

Firstly, we want you to feel as secure as you can. So we’re proud that our people say they value the stability that comes with working for a well-established, growing organisation like us.

Our communities will always need us, and we’ll always need you to advocate for the people in our care – from the front lines or behind the scenes.

We also want to ensure you get the benefits and support you need to thrive. From maximised take-home pay to invested leaders, you’ll be backed by an organisation that truly cares about how you are.

It’s also about future opportunity. Make no mistake – a career in aged care isn’t for the faint hearted. But there’s positive change ahead, and so much to feel good about – in our industry and here at Helping Hand. We’re always exploring what more we can do to make work and life easier for our team.

We know you matter, just as much as what you do matters! So here are some of the benefits we offer when you join us:
