Care workers needed in Australia

09 September 2015 by News Desk

health_careworkersThe growing population of Australia will require a major increase in the number of care workers to support its’ ageing population.

Around 15% of the population (3.5 million people) are aged 65 and over and in coming years this is forecast to increase to 21% (8.4 million people). Australia has one of the highest life expectancies in the world – 25 years longer than 100 years ago. A baby boy born between 2011 and 2013 can expect to live to 80 years and a baby girl to 84 years.

Darrell Todd of thinkingaustralia says: “Like many developed countries worldwide, Australia is facing a major demographic change and as the population ages it will increase pressure on the welfare system and provision of aged care.

“If you are a care worker or skilled in aged care and are looking for a career or lifestyle change there are opportunities for you in Australia. Contact us today to find out how you could live and work in Australia”.
