Established for 50 years, TriCare is one of Queensland’s largest private owners and managers of retirement communities and aged care residences.
TriCare’s Toowoomba Aged Care Residence, our 81 bed facility located in Mount Lofty, Toowoomba on the Darling Downs, is recruiting for an experienced casual Registered Nurse with current AHPRA registration.
On offer are varied shifts – am, pm and night shifts. We seek a nurse that can work to suit our 24/7 working environment. TriCare’s managers are flexible and will consider your work/life balance in planning of the roster, but at the same time, we value your reliability and enthusiasm to ensure our residents receive the best quality care.
As a casual team member, we may call you on short notice to provide leave coverage. Weekend and night shift work attracts penalty rates according to the Nurses Award 2010. In addition, casuals receive 25% loading on top of their base hourly rate.
