What’s important to us as an employer?
We are looking for skilled and passionate people to join our team of Disability Support Workers. We have positions available across Australia for people who can work in a person centred way. At LWB we believe our customers, should be at the centre of all decision making about what happens in their lives. We ask each individual to tell us how they want to work with us and then work to deliver supports to them with a great team, supervised by experienced coordinators.
Want to know more?
The majority of our customers with disability live in their own homes and we support them to get out and about in their communities, learn new skills, get more experience, attend TAFE and other types of education and get to work.
We also deliver supports in people’s own homes such as personal care and domestic assistance. We support customers who live together in accommodation with our staff available around the clock. We assist our customers, wherever they live, to learn skills like cooking, budgeting and doing more for themselves. Our approach is based on active support, which keeps and adds to the skills our customers already have. To us the disability is not what’s important, the person is. If however you have to work with someone with complex needs, we will prepare you for that work in advance. If this sounds like the type of work you are interested in, send us an email with your contact details and we will get right back to you.
Contact us through: NATrecruitment@lwb.org.au or (02) 4033 4500.
Note: While we advertise all vacancies here on our website, we are always interested in hearing from good people at any time.
