The benefits of working at YWCA Australia

Salary packaging

As a not-for-profit organisation, our employees can access our salary packaging benefits.  Employees can ‘salary package’ approved living expenses and approved meal and entertainment expenses up to $18,550 per year tax free.

We currently offer 14 weeks paid parental leave and we continue to contribute superannuation payments while our employees are on paid parental leave.

Employee Assistance Program and Health, Safety and Wellbeing

We provide counselling and support services to our employees through an Employee Assistance Program (EAP).  EAP provides all YWCA employees and their immediate family members with free confidential support and advice for workplace and personal issues. This is supported by the mY-Wellbeing Hub, an online platform that offers support and resources across key areas like work, family, health, life and money.

Continuing professional development

We’re passionate about continuing to build the capacity of our people. That’s why each team member can access paid study leave for approved courses.

We also provide organisation and sector-specific training, along with access to a comprehensive library of learning resources across general workplace skill areas including IT literacy skills, communication skills, people management modules, and more.
