Staff benefits

Our staff are at the heart of our organisation. We value our staff and St Vincent’s Private Hospitals are dedicated to offering a range of benefits to their teams.

Salary Packaging

Salary packaging can reduce your income tax by allowing you to pay for certain expenses with pre-tax dollars. You could be able to salary package expenses such as your:

•    Mortgage

•    Rent

•    Gas or electricity bills

•    Groceries

•    Leasing a car and so much more 

Essentially, salary packaging reduces the amount of tax payable, and increases your take home pay.

Salary packaging is available to all of our full time, part time, and eligible casuals, through our salary packaging provider, Smart Salary. You can find out more by visiting their website.
