Lifestyle (Disability) Support Workers - Northeast Melbourne

Rubix Support

An exciting role where you will be instrumental in ensuring our Participants live the best life they can. Rewarding, challenging and fun!

Rubix Support is seeking engaged and committed employees who can work a variety of support shifts in a variety of setting (eg: accommodation and community settings) including day supports, sleep overs, morning, evenings and weekends.


With significant experience in the disability sector within both government and community organisations, Rubix Support is passionate about supporting people with cognitive impairments to lead the life they want to live and to achieve their goals and aspirations.

Rubix Support provide support to people aged between two years and sixty five years old. We are a registered provider under the NDIS and provide services across four main areas: Positive Behaviour Support, Support coordination, Lifestyle Support and Sexuality and Relationship education. We are focused on evidenced based best practice and are passionate about achieving positive outcomes for the people we support.


Rubix Support aims to improve the personal wellbeing of people with cognitive impairments with complex support needs through specialised, coordinated assessments and supports; and to provide extensive training and supports to its empathetic, experiences and energetic staff.

Rubix Support's Vision is to be a leader in the provision of evidence-based, practical, individualised behaviour assessment and support for people with intellectual impairments with complex support needs.


A rewarding and challenging role, as a Lifestyle (Disability) Support Worker, you will be instrumental in providing support for our participants and making positive contributions to their quality of life.

You may be supporting someone with daily tasks within their own home or a supported accommodation environment, or on community outings such as going to work, the movies, providing personal care supports or shopping. Rubix Support will match your experience and interests with like-minded individuals - as the relationship between the Participant and worker is an essential part of providing quality services.

The people we support may have autism, an acquired brain injury, intellectual impairment or mental illness. It is important that you have an understanding of how these can impact a person's ability and how to support their self-determination.
