Disability Support Workers
Do you have a passion for empowering people of all abilities to live their best life? The passion and commitment of our Disability Support Workers help their clients achieve their goals and make each day as meaningful as the next.
Focus Care gives people choices. Some choose to get assistance with outings and activities, others will need support to get to appointments, and some may want personal care or domestic assistance.
We love Disability Support Workers who go above and beyond, recognising the individual desires of each client. Whether they want to learn new life skills or try a new activity, your role is to support them to safely rise to the challenges in front of them. We use innovative methods to encourage community integration and we always make sure clients are getting the most from their NDIS Plan.
While it’s not compulsory, we’d especially love to hear from you if you drive and have access to your own vehicle, or if you’re able to speak Vietnamese, Italian, Mandarin, Arabic or any other language. Our clients often feel more comfortable with their mother tongue.
Why work with us?
Be part of a dynamic, passionate team and receive an above-Award hourly rate in return for your hard work. You’ll also receive ongoing specialist training and development.
We value reliability, hard work and dedication to the values of our organisation, so we reward our Disability Support Workers by reviewing their salaries every 6 months.
Before you start, we’ll make sure you’re completely comfortable in your Disability Support Worker role, thanks to our specially designed Work Ready Program. You’ll also receive ongoing specialist training and development.
