Team members can also access Novated Leasing, on new, used and existing cars. This is a salary packaging arrangement that allows team members to bundle lease payments and car running costs – including petrol, insurance, rego and servicing – into one convenient payment.

At Uniting WA, we’re committed to the ongoing learning and development of everyone in the team, so you’ll be supported to belong and thrive.

We also provide regular opportunities for learning and development, including an online portal that’s available for all team members.
