Why the McGrath Foundation is a great place to work

Career with purpose

We provide McGrath Breast Care Nurses across Australia to people experiencing breast cancer and their families. This is a free support service that supports individuals and their families in a vulnerable time of their lives. Every role within our organisation contributes to bringing this vital purpose to life, making a meaningful difference to the lives of those in need.

Flexible working

Flexible working is a celebrated part of the McGrath Foundation culture. We embrace a hybrid work environment, allowing our team members the freedom to work in a way that suits their needs. We offer flexibility and part-time work options, enabling you to balance your personal priorities, such as family and health. Additionally, our partnership with WeWork provides team members access to WeWork offices across the country.

Leave benefits

We believe in the importance of rest and spending time with loved ones, enabling you to bring your best self to work. In addition to the standard leave, we offer the followings:

  • Purchased Annual Leave
  • Re-charge/Pre-charge Days
  • Anniversary Leave
  • Paid Parental Leave
  • Volunteer and Cultural Leave
  • Community Service Leave
  • Compassionate Leave / Sorry Business Leave
  • Domestic Violence Leave

Learning and Professional Development Opportunities

We are committed to continuous learning and professional development. Internally, we provide coaching, regular feedback, and 360-degree reviews to empower our team members to enhance their skills. Additionally, we have partnerships with external training organisations, offering discounted rates for further courses, training and qualifications.

Employee wellbeing

Our team members have free access to Sonder, a pioneering health and wellbeing platform. Sonder provides 24/7 professional care for safety, medical, and mental health concerns. It goes beyond traditional employee assistance programs, ensuring our team members have the support they need, whenever they need it. All team members also have access to finance wellbeing education and resources through Money101 to support team members regardless of where they are at on their financial journey.

Pay and Salary Packaging

Working for a Not-for-Profit organisation, you can take advantage of salary packaging. This allows you to pay for everyday living expenses before you are taxed, meaning you pay less tax and increase your disposable income.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Our aim is to ensure our team is as diverse as the nurses and communities we engage in and support. We have an Inclusion Collective who are responsible for working to enhance diversity and inclusiveness across the team. One way they are doing this is by prioritising reconciliation. We have recently launched our first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), endorsed by Reconciliation Australia. You can access our RAP here.
