At Feros Care we value and respect every individual: team members and clients alike.
We recognise the importance of life experience and are committed to encouraging diversity and inclusion across all of our aged care and disability services.
By fostering a culture that’s rich in diversity, we unlock the full potential of our people and gain benefits such as greater innovation, different ways of thinking, high employee engagement, improved performance and a greater wellbeing for everyone.
This is what makes Feros Care a rewarding place to work.
To uphold our values and remain the leaders of aged care and disability service excellence in our industry, the true nature of diversity must be evident amongst our team and across all levels of our organisation. This means ensuring our people and culture include individuals from different generations, genders, sexual orientations, cultures, backgrounds and various abilities.
Because the best results come from the collaboration of individuals who are unique and special in their own ways.

Our people stories
You’ll now find Daniel kicking goals working at a not-for-profit disability service provider, and he couldn’t be happier. He secured the part-time job soon after the Feros Care Work Experience Program, armed with newfound professional confidence and a readiness to take on challenges.
Wellbeing Manager Russ Hargreaves is many things – a minister, a valued part of the Feros Care team, a proud member in Feros Care’s Pride Support Network, and a leading advocate for the rainbow community, helping foster a culture of inclusion and acceptance.
The smiles that light up seniors’ faces when Russ Hargreaves enters the room say it all.
Katja is redefining the ‘norm’ – and his clients love it! Picture this; a charismatic young male with a super cool name living his best life as a Community Support Worker. That’s right, we said a ‘young’ person – with an X and Y chromosome – who loves his job working with seniors. So, what made Katja Russell pursue a career in aged care, and do the people he supports really welcome someone outside the industry stereotype into their lives with open arms? You bet they do.
