Access Care Network Australia

Clinical Assessor, AN-ACC

  • Many roles in NSW with ACNA now available, so you can be a part of positive change for aged care assessment in Australia
  • Join an organisation from March 2021 that loves its staff and supports them to thrive
  • Be in a role that uses your critical thinking and clinical reasoning to assess a client, without delivering hands-on care


Salary: $83,940 plus 9% superannuation and generous salary packaging benefits of up to $15,899 per year. Casual rates also available – call us about your optimal package.

What is the role?

We are looking for people to join our AN-ACC team on a 12 month full-time (or part-time, or casual) contract. Using a new independent assessment tool for residential aged care, you will be part of the ACNA team working on this significant 12-month national project in aged care with the Department of Health and have a real opportunity to positively influence the future of aged care assessments in Australia.

A typical week as a Clinical Assessor in the AN-ACC project includes:

  • Using your clinical judgement and the new AN-ACC digital assessment tool to undertake capacity assessments in Residential Aged Care Facilities.
  • Working alongside one of more team members each day in the facility, connecting with your whole team weekly and staying connected via MS Teams.
  • Informing the future use of AN-ACC through your assessments and the feedback you provide that will be shared with the Department of Health.
  • Dipping into learning experiences and team experiences to expand your knowledge, networks and career.

Who are we looking for?

If you are an RN (or PT or OT) and want to be a part of positive change in the aged care sector then why not consider joining Access Care Network Australia (ACNA), a forward-thinking and innovative not-for-profit organisation.

To help you consider your suitability for these roles, we have included the Position Description and the Minimum Criteria that relates to this project. There are two key aspects of the Minimum Criteria: You need to be a qualified RN, OT or PT (with the ability to maintain AHPRA registration) and you will have at least 5-years experience in the aged care sector, which could have been at any stage of your career and in any context.

And of course we want to make sure you are a great fit for the ACNA, so we are looking for people that align with ACNA’s values of supporting people to be their best and always striving to learn, improve and grow. Hiring people whose own values align with ours allows us to build awesome teams of like-minded individuals who are able to create the best outcomes for our clients.

Choose ACNA!

We could insert a spiel here demonstrating what a great organisation we are to work for, but instead we invite you to listen to stories from our team in our Podcast and read these quotes from our AN-ACC trial team:

We worked really well together to come up with solutions that worked for the team rather than working in our own little world. We came up with a joint model that we could all work together to achieve what we needed to achieve - meeting output requirements.”

“Having [the] team work together closely…. it gives you a sense of ownership and pride. It provides the foundation of trust in the team that I am working with. It was definitely a really positive experience for me and something I was glad to be a part of.”

Sure, we work hard and have contractual KPIs to meet, but we also want you to have a great employment experience with ACNA and leave us better off than when you arrived through the provision of great learning opportunities and clear connection to the leadership team.
