Your Career Benefits at Independence Australia

We believe your hard work and contribution to our organisation deserves some great benefits in return. As a valued employee, you’re given great job benefits to keep you happy and healthy, whether it’s financially, emotionally, physically or socially.

Salary Packaging

As a social enterprise, we can offer you tax lowering salary packaging arrangements.

Upon meeting the eligibility criteria, you will have access to generous tax concessions via salary packaging to reduce your taxable income and increase your take-home pay.

Most of our employees can salary package earnings up to $15,899.90 a year, equating to $611.50 a fortnight in the income you’re not paying tax on. You can also salary package your dining and holiday accommodation expenses (local or international) to help reduce your income tax.

Paid parental leave

We offer paid parental leave allowing employees to take time away from work for the birth or adoption of their child. Between employer or government funded, along with flexible parental leave, we offer you options to support you and your child best.

 

Discounted healthcare products

We are a national distributor of personal healthcare products, mobility aids and equipment. As part of the Independence Australia team, you are entitled to highly discounted prices on our extensive product range

Referral Program

We reward and recognise our employees who contribute to attracting and building talent within our organisation by referring suitable candidates for eligible vacant positions.

Employee assistance program (EAP)

To help manage your wellbeing and any personal or work-related issues causing you stress or trauma, with your manager’s approval, we can offer an Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

Free short-term counselling is available confidentially from an experienced and professional counsellor. Support is available for various concerns, including depression, marriage and relationships, legal issues, childcare or elder care challenges, parenting issues, financial concerns, grief management or substance abuse.

Flexible & hybrid working arrangements

With your manager’s approval, we can offer 48/52 weeks per year as a working arrangement.

This scheme enables full-time employees (excluding disability support workers) to work 44 weeks of a negotiated 12-month period.

If you participate in the scheme, you effectively have four weeks’ leave without pay approved. Instead of taking the value of the four weeks’ salary in one period, you can get approval to spread the salary impact of 4 weeks’ leave without pay over 26 pay periods.

 We also have policies to support flexible family arrangements, flexible working hours and opportunities for part-time employment.
