Anglicare has been named an Employer of Choice by the Tasmanian Government for demonstrating contemporary workplace practices and outstanding support for staff.

The EOC Awards recognise and promote Tasmanian organisations that successfully attract and retain skilled employees.

“I am committed to leading an organisation that supports all people who work here to find purpose and balance in life,” said CEO Chris Jones. “To serve the community to the best of our abilities, it’s vital that we look after the wellbeing of ourselves and each other. That includes providing the people who work for Anglicare with opportunities to keep learning and developing their skills and talents”.

Anglicare’s entry in the awards was assessed by an independent judging panel comprising representatives from Skills Tasmania and a selection of other EOC organisations.

The entry noted that Anglicare has generous study leave entitlements, provides free training for various qualifications, and offers a range of other professional development opportunities.

The organisation has a staff awards program, as well as the annual Jerrim Fellowship which is a scholarship that can be used to visit projects or services, attend a conference, do an internship or complete a training course.
