Disability Support Worker
Caloundra and Sunshine Coast Region
- High needs disability organisation
- Dynamic, experienced team
- Queensland wide with opportunities for growth
We are currently seeking Disability Support Workers to support persons with a disability based within our Caloundra and Sunshine Coast services.
Our Disability Support Workers support our customers as they shape and improve their lives. They create opportunities, are champions of possibility and inspire partnerships of support that encourage every individual to realise the possibilities available to them.
As a Disability Support Worker at Multicap, you'll experience a rewarding career where your skills and commitment will help people achieve incredible things, one small step at a time. The role can present challenges and it's certainly not right for everyone... but those who embrace challenge gain the most reward form this vital work.
You'll be supported and respected by an experienced team of people who share your passion, dedication and resilience. Multicap is proud to support people across Queensland and Northern New South Wales. While this means we are spread out, together we are always focused on putting our customers first. We are dedicated to showing people they can, when sometimes they've been told they can't.
To be considered for this opportunity, you will need to have:
- Certificate III in Disability, Individual Support or similar
- Experience within the industry (eg. disability, mental health, aged care, individual support, community services or youth work etc.)
- Experience with challenging and complex behaviours
- Experience in following positive behaviour support plans
- First Aid Certificate and CPR, or willing to obtain one
- Eligibility to obtain a Blue and Yellow Card (Multicap can assist you with this process)
- Current Drivers Licence.
This is primarily for a new accommodation service, so flexibility in working hours is desired.
Successful candidates will be required to hold a Blue & Yellow Card (Multicap can help you with this application process).
