The Child and Adolescent Health Service (CAHS) recognises that our staff are our greatest asset; whatever their role, all staff play a vital role in the care that is delivered to our patients, clients and our community.

There are more than 4,500 employees working at CAHS.

We have a non-smoking policy and strategy that demonstrates our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our staff and the community we serve. Smoking is not permitted in any health service building, vehicle, car park or grounds.

Why work for us?

CAHS aims to create a work environment that provides flexibility for our employees, enabling them to achieve a better balance between work, family and life commitments. A variety of family friendly entitlements and flexible work practices are offered to support our commitment to diversity and equal opportunity. These include, but are not limited to, part-time employment, flexible working hours, purchased leave and family leave. Employees are given the opportunity to negotiate flexible working arrangements wherever possible, subject to the requirements of their position, work area or employment conditions.

All employees are offered the opportunity to participate in flexible remuneration (salary) packaging. Salary packaging is an Australian Tax Office approved means of maximising take-home salary. It involves restructuring income by choosing to receive salary as a combination of cash and approved benefit items that are paid out of a person’s pre-tax salary.
