About the organisation

Organisation Name : EACH

At EACH, our vision is for a healthy and inclusive community.

Founded on the vision that everyone is entitled to good health, we’re one of the nation’s leading health and community services providers, offering a broad range of services for over 40 years. Our services include Community Health, Mental Health, NDIS, Counselling, Support for Older Australians and Family Services.

About the role

Support for our clients involves providing them with assistance to live as independently as possible, develop skills or access the community.

As part of our team based in Boronia, we are looking for casual Support Workers to assist our male clients with complex and varied behavioral, intellectual, mental health, and AOD support needs in homes and communities.

If you’re a Support Worker, qualified as either a Cert IV in Individual Support (or equivalent) and/or combined with relevant experience, and want to have a positive impact on the lives of people in your community, you might be exactly the person we’re looking for!

 

Who we are looking for

You will bring substantial and demonstrated experience in managing complex behavioural support plans for clients who may have dual or multi diagnoses including intellectual, mental health concerns, and AOD plans, and exhibit additional behaviour of high concern.

Along with your passion for supporting others, you will:

  • Understand and have experience with approaches to support people living with complex needs.
  • Hold a Cert IV in Individual Support (or equivalent) and/or combined with relevant experience
  • Be an effective communicator and natural relationship builder
  • Have experience delivering high-quality person-centred support and assistance to individuals that embraces their personal goals and choices, and respects cultural diversity
  • Have a demonstrated ability to complete administrative tasks to the required standard and detail to meet quality and reporting requirements
  • Ideally hold a current state-based Driver’s License with a registered vehicle

 

 

What you’ll be doing

You will be working closely with a small team on a rotating roster and to ensure a smooth client plan across a 7-day roster.

No two days will be the same in this role, with the support you provide including, but not limited to:

  • Following and implementing individual Behavioural Support Plans to assist our clients to maintain independence and achieve identified goals such as cooking, social engagement, personal care, budgeting, shopping, domestic skills, maintaining tenancy, using public transport, attending appointments etc.
  • Work with therapists and allied health professionals to ensure needs are met
  • Providing support services to male Customers with complex needs, helping them to build confidence, self-determination and communication abilities.
  • Providing companionship, conversation, and emotional support.

 

 

Who you’ll be working with

NDIS Direct Services teams are well supported by the Customer Service Delivery Leads. The Support Worker role is very independent, however, our CSDL’s are always available to guide and support you. As well, you will be supported by our Peer Leads who have lived experience within your role and will support your day-to-day role as well as ongoing development.

 

What we offer
EACH is committed to developing our people and you’ll be supported to be your best. We provide:

  • Work arrangements that flex to you to allow for a positive work-life balance.
  • Generous Not-for-Profit Salary Packaging to maximise your take home pay.
  • Competitive salary based on qualifications and experience.
  • Opportunities for internal career progression across QLD, NSW, ACT, and VIC.
  • Support through a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program for you, and your immediate family members.
  • Opportunities to continuously grow and develop.

How to apply

At EACH, we want all of our candidates to feel comfortable bringing their passion and individuality to the process. We value all cultures, backgrounds, and experiences, as we truly believe that diversity drives innovation. Express yourself, apply for the role and help us bring good health quality outcomes to for everyone.
