Sydney, 5 October, 2023 – New partnership is set to attract new talent to the home care sector and help place workers with approved home care providers in NSW and the ACT, in a bid to overcome the skill shortages affecting aged care.


Newly by HealthcareLink, a growing digital marketplace connecting aged care and disability support providers with high caliber care and support professionals has joined forces with non-profit SSI to help support its delivery of the government-funded Home Care Workforce Support Program (HCWSP). Newly will focus on attracting care and support workers, match them with jobs and place them with home and aged care providers in NSW and the ACT.


Newly’s existing 110,000 registered care workforce, award-winning platform and its candidate management capabilities strategically positions the digital marketplace provider to support SSI to boost the HCWSP's placement rates.

HealthcareLink and SSI will use the Newly digital platform to help home care providers more efficiently find and assess best-suited job candidates.

Kopi Nadarajah, CEO and Founder of Newly and HealthcareLink says the platform not only finds people who want to enter the care sector, it also taps a broader pool of people already employed in the care sector targeting them with suitable job opportunities.

"We hope that with better-matched, higher-quality employment, there will be greater employee satisfaction, higher numbers of retention and more positive outcomes for the elderly needing care," said Nadarajah.

Iggy Pintado, Head of Home Care Workforce Support Program at SSI said: “Our goal through this collaboration is to tap into Newly’s technology platform and its consultants to help accelerate the onboarding and placement of quality candidates within the Home Care Workforce Support Program, and therefore increase placement rates”. He further added, “Gaining access to the Newly platform will enable SSI to promote the program, draw in a greater number of candidates, and leverage its network of more than 100,000 care professionals.”


Newly will also facilitate connections between registered members and Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), as well as appropriate training institutions, enabling them to fulfill the necessary requirements for certificates III, IV, or short courses essential for employment in the home care sector.


“This further solidifies Newly's position as a prominent career services provider in the home care sector of Australia,” said Nadarajah. “Members of the Newly community seeking employment who don't have home care experience will be provided with the chance to receive training via the Home Care Workforce Support Program and access employment opportunities within the home care sector.


Newly will have the opportunity to further collaborate with SSI to implement innovative solutions to alleviate identified barriers in attracting and retaining care workers.
