A little about the role

DPV Health is passionate about ensuring everyone has the opportunity to live a fulfilled life, regardless of their ability. We deliver flexible services so we can be responsive to a person’s goals, needs and lifestyle!

We are looking for experienced casual support workers to join our Day Service and Disability services teams to:

  • Provide direct support for individuals during program delivery, meal times, personal care, behavioural, physical and social supports.
  • Create a positive environment for all clients promoting both physical and emotional well-being.
  • Provide quality services and outcomes, by the relationships formed between staff, the people we support, their families and representatives.

About you

To be considered for this role, you will need the following

  •  A strong knowledge of disability, including complex communication and behaviour, either through qualifications or demonstrated experience in the field. 
  • A qualification in disability studies or equivalent qualification.
  • Applicants must be highly motivated, energetic and committed to providing the highest quality of care and support to people with a disability and be willing to support clients in a variety of activities in a variety of settings.

  • You must hold a Current Victorian Driver’s Licence and a Current Level 2 First Aid certificate.

 

About the perks

  • Work-Life Balance – we understand that work-life balance is important and accommodate flexibility for team members wherever possible.

  • Professional Development – with access to modern, digital eLearning you’ll have flexibility of course timing with access to shorter, more customized content. Accompanied by face to face training, your continual professional development is always top of our priority list.
  • DPV Day – We invest a whole day off site for all staff for an interactive, informative and engaging day of workshops, strategic plan presentations and lots more!
