Who are we?

Wintringham is a Not for Profit organisation which provides aged care services to those who are financially disadvantaged, have previously been homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless. Employing over 800 staff, Wintringham provides care and support services through residential facilities as well as community services, which assist an elderly person to retain their chosen lifestyles, habits and activities and to be as independent as they choose to be.

Wintringham is renowned for the quality and personalised range of lifestyle and recreation activities/outcomes we support our residents to achieve.

Your new role

We are currently seeking a flexible and experienced Lifestyle & Recreation Officer to join our team on a casual basis to work across our community/home care program in Melbourne’s Inner Eastern suburbs.

  • Community Support: escorting our clients on community outings e.g. shopping trips, excursions, lunches, appointments
