  • Are you looking for a rewarding career?
  • Are you passionate about working with people?
  • Thought about providing disability support and assistance to those in need?

Join us in supporting people in our community and make a difference in someone's life!

About You

You are passionate. Driven. Empathetic. You're tolerant, resilient and pragmatic. And you are able to maintain a sense of professionalism and calm in the face of a challenge.

You now crave an opportunity to bring these qualities to the front lines, to lend a hand. You're looking for a tight-knit team, a supportive culture, and a varied role which will allow you to make a real, daily difference to the lives of those who need it most.

If this is you, you're in luck: we have the perfect opportunity for you to do all of these things - right here, with us.

About this opportunity

As a Support Worker, you will deliver a variety of services to participants to support them to live a fulfilling and meaningful life in the community. Your working day may include (but not limited to), assistance and or support with daily life, including personal care, domestic activities, social and community participation and varying skill development activities.

What do you need?

  • You will need a Certificate 3 or 4 in Mental Health, Disability, Aged Care or Home and Community Care.
  • A current valid Driver's License and a registered vehicle (including insurance) plus
  • Satisfactory Police Records Check and Working with Children Check, prior to commencement
  • Applicants having experience and knowledge in psychosocial disability will be at an advantage

You'll appreciate your decision-making skills in this role, as well as your ability to know when to be compassionate (and when to gently push!). If you've worked in social services, a residential care facility, a hospital, aged care setting, prison or mental health facility you'll find yourself drawing on those experiences, too - but they're not the be-all and end-all as we do provide support and training to ensure you excel in this role!

In exchange for your hard work, you'll enjoy the support and care of a like-minded, passionate team with great salary packaging benefits. And most of all, you'll appreciate the fact that you're really making a difference, where and when it matters. And that feeling is pretty hard to beat.
