I love that you can arrive at work and find a bundle of fresh produce on the staff room table to share

It’s great to have the opportunity to work off the occasional morning tea at one of our staff gym sessions.

I enjoy working for GLCH because we have great team support and it’s an organisation that can offer many choices. I left school quite early but since starting here at 50 years of age I have gained Cert III in Aged Care, Disability Care, Community Health and Cert IV in Allied Health Assistance. GLCH have helped give me a sense of achievement.
