NVC Group opens its doors to new trainees

Published: 29 Aug 2022

Without doubt, one of the most rewarding careers is being a carer.

NVC Group Chairman Janine Reed said her organisation has opened its doors to a new intake of trainee carers, in the hope to help meet the surge in demand for aged care services.

“We have built our reputation on providing the highest quality of care to older people for close to 50 years,” she said.

“NVC Group’s services are in-demand because we are a service provider for the Australian Government’s popular Home Care Packages and because our community is ageing, and people understandably require more support.  

“I hope young people desiring to enter the workforce or those people wanting to re-train strongly consider our traineeships, as we have a lot to offer to assist people wanting a career in health and community care.”

Some of the benefits of becoming a trainee carer include:

  • Starting a rewarding career making a positive difference in people’s lives
  • Gaining employment in a growing industry
  • Learning while you earn
  • Gaining a nationally recognised qualification.

Kempsey resident Chris Tunnicliffe, 41, said he found his traineeship with NVC Group really rewarding.

“I became interested in working in aged care after moving here from Sydney six or seven years ago,” he said.

“I went to an open day at NV College and I approached staff there about whether or not I could work in Kempsey while I was studying. They were so encouraging and flexible and I was offered a carer’s traineeship and work at Cedar Place nursing home.

“My work satisfaction has really improved and I gained a lot of skills through studying at the college.”
