Life Without Barriers is a leading social purpose, not for profit organisation of 7,000 employees working in more than 440 communities across Australia. We support children, young people and families, people with disability, older people and people with mental illness. We work with people who are homeless and refugees and asylum seekers.
We want to employ people who reflect the diversity of our clients to ensure we can support each client's individual needs and wants. We encourage people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander background and people with disability to apply.
Working at our Supported Independent Living settings (Group Homes) in both Castle Hill and Yennora, you will play an important role in supporting and empowering people with disability to live independently in the community and to achieve their individual goals.
We are looking for a Disability Support Worker with previous experience supporting children with disability to join our team on a Permanent Part Time basis. The ideal candidate will have experience working with clients who display challenging behaviours.
For the suitable candidate, there is up to 30 hours per week available across the two services and it is expected that the successful candidate will be available and willing to work a 24/7 roster that includes regular shift work, including night shifts, weekends and public holidays.
Successful candidates will be required to clear probity checks including National Criminal History Record Check and Working with Children Check (where relevant to the role).
Life Without Barriers supports the Royal Commission into violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability. We believe people with disability need to be heard and for these experiences to influence how support services like ours are delivered. View our statement here.
