Staff Benefits

There are many benefits to working at Cabrini:

Salary packaging

Cabrini is a private not-for-profit hospital therefore the federal government allows our employees to ‘package’ certain items up to a capped dollar figure without incurring Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT). This allows a tax saving to our employees. It gives employees the flexibility to take part of their salary as approved benefit items (expenses) before PAYG tax is deducted rather than paying for the item with your post tax salary. By salary packaging employees increase their net disposable income by decreasing the tax paid. Cabrini uses Maxxia (select this link to their website) as their salary packaging provider.
