Health Services Union

About us:

The Health Services Union NSW/ACT/QLD is a growing 45,000-member strong union that uses our collective power to build a fair and just society for our members in the health and care services industry. The Health Services Union offers a collaborative environment which focuses on teamwork, empowerment, innovation, integrity, and accountability.

About the role:

Aged care workers earn as little as $21.00/hr to provide essential care to the most vulnerable in our communities. Our members are organising to take on the Federal Government to fund a fair pay increase for all aged care workers- our Fight For 25 campaign.

The HSU is looking for organisers to join our growing Aged Care and Disabilities Division to support the organising efforts of HSU members in our Fight For 25.

Organisers in the Aged Care and Disabilities Division are part of a dynamic team who share their knowledge and experiences and are always looking to learn from each other. This supportive, open culture has been crucial in the team’s success to date.


  • A strong commitment to trade union values and the principles of organising.
  • Demonstrated success in recruiting new members and developing workplace leaders.
  • Excellent communication and negotiation skills
  • Ability to work as part of a team and autonomously as the campaign requires.
  • A lifelong learner
  • Valid driver’s license

Previous experience in the aged care or related sectors and language skills will be looked at favourable.

The HSU encourage applications for this role from current workplace delegates, experienced organisers, people of all genders, from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent.


An attractive remuneration package will be offered to the successful applicant. Other benefits include:

  • A flexible, diverse and inclusive workplace and including generous employer superannuation contributions and leave entitlements such as Accrued Days Off and Family and Community Leave.
  • A motor vehicle
  • Commitment to supporting professional development.
  • Health and Wellbeing initiatives
