Aruma needs YOU (yes, you!)
Support Workers | Permanent Part Time positions
St Marys| Supported Independent Living
At Aruma, we support people with disabilities to live great lives. It’s the reason we exist – after all, why should anyone have to settle for anything less? And to make this a reality, we rely on the skill and commitment of our Aruma team.
About the Opportunities:
We are currently recruiting for three Permanent Part-Time (80 hours per month minimum) Support Worker positions in our St Marys Supported Independent Living Services.
These roles work on 24/7 rotating rosters, so your flexibility to work on days, evenings, awake shifts, sleepovers and weekend shifts is a must.
As a Support Worker at Aruma, you are directly responsible for the day-to-day support, personal care and personal development of our Customers. You will provide a range of community living services to assist people with a disability to be actively involved in their local community, be valued, respected and engaged in meaningful opportunities and relationships. You will work both in a team environment and independently.
We’re looking for people who have values similar to ours, BRAVE people, but there’s no specific ‘mould’ you need to fit (after all, we need a team that’s as diverse as our Customers!).
To become part of the team here at Aruma we are looking for people who:
· Are enthusiastic about supporting people with disabilities to live GREAT lives. The lives they want and choose.
· Have flexibility to work on a 24/7 rotating roster which includes days, evenings, awake shifts, sleepovers and weekend shifts.
· Have a Current Driver’s License and willingness to use own vehicle (if required) with comprehensive insurance.
· Have a Current First Aid (HLTAID003) and CPR Certificates or willingness to obtain prior to commencing.
· Have completed the NDIS Worker Orientation Module (Quality Safety and You) or willingness to complete prior to commencing.
· Be willing to provide an NDIS Worker Check (NDISWC) Clearance.
· Have the ability to support others with personal care and domestic duties in a respectful way (and happy for this to be part of your job).
· Have the capacity to meet the physical requirements of the job that may include manual handling tasks.
· Enjoy working in a small team environment as well as independently if required.
· Have good computer, communication and interpersonal skills.
· Have a strong sense of accountability and confidentiality.
· Have completed the Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) - this isn’t a ‘must’ – we’re happy to provide training to help you get qualified.
