Full job description
  • Want to work close to home with hours and days that suit your lifestyle?
  • Both casual AND permanent, part-time roles available.
  • Need some extra $$$? Take on additional shifts when you need it.

About the role

As a Community Support Assistant at VMCH you will provide individual direct care and support to older clients so that they can continue living as independently as possible in their own homes. You will work closely with the Home Care team to understand individual clients and their specific needs, which may include:

  • Personal care and self-care assistance (showering and dressing assistance, medication prompting/assistance)
  • Home care and domestic assistance such as cleaning and laundry)
  • Meal preparation
  • Respite, social support, and companionship
  • Transport, shopping, and community access
  • Accompanying to appointments

About you

Given your experience as a Support Worker in a previous role, you already know that you have a passion for working with elderly people and their families. Ideally, you will also have experience caring for people with specific care needs, including dementia and challenging behaviours.

I don’t suppose you speak a language other than English, do you?  That would be awesome, as our Support Workers are often working with clients from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

You have a flexible approach to your work and the ability to work remotely and autonomously, often without direct supervision.

Requirements

  • Minimum Cert III Individual Support / Home & Community Care / Aged Care or equivalent
  • Current First Aid Certificate (HLTAID003)
  • Current CPR Certificate (HLTAID001)
  • Relevant and current vaccination status (both Covid and Influenza)
  • Current Victorian Driver’s Licence & reliable, roadworthy vehicle suitable for transporting clients with full comprehensive insurance

Why VMCH?

Because the people we employ make it a great place to work! In addition, VMCH will provide you with:

  • Excellent Salary Packaging benefits
  • Both casual AND permanent part time roles on offer
  • A competitive salary
  • Ongoing professional development
  • A positive and supportive workplace culture
  • Employee Assistance Program
