Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the recruitment process take?

From the time we receive your application, we conduct an internal screening process on your suitability for a role and will typically make contact with you for a phone interview within a week.

For support worker roles, we then invite you to a recruitment session (usually running for 2-3hrs depending on attendees) where we will check your mandatory documentation, and ask you to participate in some short interviews with our team members.

Successful applicants are then reference checked and forwarded a job offer. If accepted, we facilitate an induction day prior to starting in your  new role. We are typically able to onboard new employees within one month, depending on availability of mandatory documentation.

What mandatory documents am I required to submit?

The items that may take the longest time to receive are the NDIS Worker Screening Clearance, Blue Card (Working with Children Check), and a recent police check certificate. The sooner you begin the application process, the quicker we will be able to onboard you. You can apply for your Blue Card at the same time as applying for Disability Worker screening clearance through the Disability Worker Screening Clearance website.

Disability Worker Screening WebsiteAdditional documents required for general support worker roles include a current first aid and CPR certificate, a current drivers licence as well as vehicle registration and appropriate vehicle insurance and safety certificate (roadworthy).

Do I need a Certificate 3 in Individual Support to work as a support worker?

No although a Cert 3 in Individual Support is highly regarded.

Do I need my own vehicle to be a support worker?

Generally yes, we empower clients by supporting them with a number of day-to-day activities including transport assistance, community access and support with everyday tasks such as grocery shopping and attending appointments.

However, we are always in need of superstar support workers in our after school care service and school holiday program where transporting clients by vehicle does not form part of support worker responsibilities.

What is the typical work journey for the support worker role?

If you are new to the industry, support workers begin with general care and outings with our clients. As your skill and experience progresses, you may be assigned to support clients who have more complex needs – coaching and ongoing professional development is available to all.

 

Opportunities for growth into service delivery support roles which are office based and involve mentorship of new support workers are also on offer.
