As a Support Worker, you play a vital role in supporting people to live their best life. You’ll help people who live with disability participate in their local community, pursue their passions and live a more independent home life.

We’ve got exciting opportunities for people with passion and commitment, with flexible hours and work arrangements to suit different lifestyles. We have a number of casual positions available around the Albany and Great Southern region.

This is an opportunity to join a team who are highly motivated and committed to deliver innovative and contemporary models of support that demonstrate positive impact to people with physical and psychosocial disabilities.

We’ll support you while you learn on the job and provide access to the learning and development opportunities you need to build a successful career in disability support.
