Migrants are an important component of the Australian aged care workforce and workers from Asia are the fastest-growing migrant cohort in the sector. Differentiating between migrants from South-East, North-East and Southern Asia and comparing them to other migrants and Australianborn workers, data from the 2012 National Aged Care Workforce Census and Survey is used to examine experiences of working in aged care, including working arrangements, job satisfaction and future work plans. The findings provide a basis for developing more targeted and nuanced workforce strategies that could help attract and retain Asian-born workers and assist in their settlement and integration.
