Benefits of working with us

Our core values are integrity, innovation, impact, compassion and collaboration and our staff are committed to fostering a dynamic and positive work environment. A career at the NORTH Foundation is about helping to improve people’s health and wellbeing and to help our staff achieve this, we also offer a range of benefits to ensure your career is as fulfilling and rewarding as possible.


We offer flexible working arrangements to maintain your work/life balance, including the opportunity to work from home a few days a week. We also have the systems and technology in place to appropriately support this hybrid model.


Mentoring is a great way for new hires to expand their network. We offer external mentoring opportunities and have board sponsors for various portfolios. Our membership with the FIA also gives us access to industry experts.


We are situated within the Royal North Shore Hospital campus and benefit from some of the employee services available to NSW Health staff. We also work closely with some of the best clinicians and researchers in the country.

Training and Education

We offer professional development and learning opportunities such as courses, conferences and on-the-job coaching. We want to ensure that you have the appropriate support and skills to perform your role as well as the opportunity to enhance your work performance to meet your personal career goals.

Salary Packaging

Salary packaging allows you to pay for certain expenses before tax is taken out of your earnings. This reduces the amount of tax paid, helping you make the most of your income. You can choose to package a range of benefits each FBT year on things such as your mortgage, rent, school tuition fees or private health insurance.

Wellbeing Initiatives

We are committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of our workforce. As part of this commitment, we provide staff with health and wellness vouchers and access to activities such as yoga. We are also small and agile enough to be open to implementing new initiatives based on demand such as Bike to Work schemes.
