Support Workers - Cardiff / Warners Bay

  • Support Workers
  • Cardiff and Warners Bay
  • Multiple positions available

Aruma needs YOU (yes, you!)

At Aruma, we support people with disabilities to live great lives. It's the reason we exist - after all, why should anyone have to settle for anything less? And to make this a reality, we rely on the skill and commitment of our Aruma team.

So, who is Aruma?

We're glad you asked! Aruma is a new name in disability services, but we're definitely not the new kids on the block. You might remember us as House with No Steps and The Tipping Foundation, two great organisations, with over 100 years of combined experience, who came together in 2018. Find out more about us at aruma.com.au.

When you're part of the Aruma team, you're not just supporting people. We're all about putting the people we support first. That's a non-negotiable.

About the Roles

We are currently recruiting for a number of Part Time and Casual Support Workers across our Cardiff and Warners Bay sites.

Our Part-Time positions have hours ranging from 80 hours per month.

These roles work on rotating rosters, so your flexibility to work on days, evenings, awake shifts, sleepovers and weekend shifts is a must.

As a Support Worker at Aruma, you are directly responsible for the day to day support, personal care and personal development of our Customers. You will provide a range of community living services to assist people with a disability to be actively involved in their local community, be valued, respected and engaged in meaningful opportunities and relationships. You will work both in a team environment and independently.

We're looking for people who have values similar to ours, BRAVE people, but there's no specific 'mould' you need to fit (after all, we need a team that's as diverse as our Customers!).

To become part of the team here at Aruma we are looking for people who:

  • Are enthusiastic about supporting people with disabilities to live GREAT lives. The lives they want and choose.
  • Have flexibility to work on a 7-day rotating roster which includes days, evenings and weekend shifts.
  • Have a Current Driver's Licence and willingness to use own vehicle (if required) with comprehensive insurance.
  • Have a Current First Aid Certificate or willingness to obtain prior to commencing.
  • Have the ability to support others with personal care and domestic duties in a respectful way (and happy for this to be part of your job).
  • Have the capacity to meet the physical requirements of the job that may include manual handling tasks.
  • Enjoy working in a small team environment as well as independently if required.
  • Have good computer, communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Have a strong sense of accountability and confidentiality.
  • Have completed the Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) would be an advantage.

Our success depends on YOU. So, if you're passionate about supporting people with disabilities to be active, inclusive participants in their communities and would like to work in a role that is both challenging and rewarding, we'd love to hear your story.

Please submit a Cover Letter addressing the above selection criteria along with your Resume.

Only applicants with the right to work in Australia will be considered. Shortlisted applications will be required to undergo pre-employment probity checks. We will be actively shortlisting during the advertising period and reserve the right to close this advert prior to the advertised date.

Aruma is a Child Safe Organisation and an EEO Employer.
