Working as a casual Disability Support Worker in the Blue Mountains and Hawkesbury area, you will play an important role in supporting and empowering people with disability to live independently and achieve their goals.
We are looking for people who are dedicated, values oriented, and people focused. More specifically, we need people who can understand the rights of our clients living with disabilities and assist them in a Supported Independent Living environment. Due to the nature of the services we provide, we also ask that applicants are available for a variety of shifts across a 24/7 roster: including active nights and weekends.
If you live close to East Kurrajong, Faulconbridge, Hazelbrook, Springwood or Wentworth Falls, this could be the job for you! We look forward to seeing what skills you can bring to the team and how your passion can help us deliver a service that will encourage our clients to thrive.
Successful candidates will be required to clear probity checks including National Criminal History Record Check and Working with Children Check.
