Pastoral Carer 


Calvary Public Hospital Bruce is seeking an experienced Pastoral Carer to join our team on a casual basis.


Pastoral care is a person-centred, supportive, compassionate presence for people at significant times of transition, illness, uncertainty and grief or loss. Through reflective listening and empathic interaction, pastoral carers assist people to connect to their emotional and spiritual resources, including inner strength, wisdom, hopes and needs.  


The standard hours of work for the Pastoral Care Department are 8am-4pm, 7 days a week, on a rotating roster.   This includes overnight on-call functionality.  Staff working weekends and on-call operate without direct supervision.  Pastoral Carers also work at Calvary Bruce Private Hospital, Canberra’s newest Private Hospital owned and operated by Little Company of Mary, which opened in September 2017. 


Calvary Public Hospital Bruce has a team of employed Pastoral Carers who support patients, their family members and friends, and staff.  Pastoral Carers arrange for particular religious support to be provided from representatives of all major faith communities in Canberra.  The Pastoral Care team works across a broad range of patient experience, including palliative care, death, bereavement, loss and grief, and medical emergencies.
