About Us

Community Based Support (CBS) is a Tasmanian Not for Profit organisation. We support people who are elderly or living with disability to live the life they choose, in their home for as long as possible. We provide person-centred support, tailored to individual needs. We dedicate our time to providing exceptional services that enable clients to maximise their independence. 

 

About the Role

We are supporting a number of Aged Care and Disability clients across Southern Tasmania, and are recruiting for experienced and passionate Community Support Workers to provide flexible, person-centred support to our clients in their own homes.

Some responsibilities may include:

  • practical and physical support as needed for daily personal care and domestic duties; and
  • support to access and participate in social activities within the community.

We have built extensive permanent part-time rosters for employment. Shifts will vary as client needs change and do require some early mornings, late evenings and weekend work.
