Reliability, a positive attitude, creativity, and diligence are all very important aspects of your work.

About our support workers

All our support workers are highly qualified and experienced in the community sector. They also have expertise, talents and skills outside their supporting roles which enhance their work with our very important clients. For example, we have cooks, cleaners, sports men and women, gardeners, organisers, musicians, singers, listeners and some even attempt to fish. They often find solutions to situations that baffle others

Our Expectations

We encourage you to apply if you can commit yourself to work in a job that is more than just a job; if you value your clients and want to make a genuine and positive difference in their lives on their terms, not yours. Ask yourself – am I willing to go the extra mile? If so, please apply for this position.
