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.
As a Team Leader you will be responsible for coordinating the day to day running of a range of client supports whilst providing quality, hands on support to People with Disability in order to achieve their individual goals.
The successful candidate will also be responsible for providing ongoing guidance, mentoring and training to a team of Disability Support Workers to ensure that a high standard of support and care for clients is achieved. We are seeking candidates who have previous experience in the management of clients with epilepsy, autism and challenging behaviours.
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 (https://bit.ly/2GzZGWA).
