- Awesome perks and benefits

- Work with a great team in your local community





Avivo provide support to people with frailty, disability or mental illness to live in their own home. Our Support Workers work alongside people, from all walks of life, giving them a helping hand to live their life.





We are looking for caring, flexible and capable Support Workers from Perth City to Butler and City Beach to Mundaring. Our Support Workers work in teams dedicated to a specific neighbourhood (so don’t worry you won’t be travelling too far around town)!





The role will work across aged care, disability and mental health sectors. Engaging in a range of care needs to assist individuals to remain living within their home.







There's no 'typical day' but it may include...



- House cleaning for someone who can’t do this themselves

- Helping someone with intimate personal care needs

- Support for various complexities of mental illness

- Assistance with trips in and around the community

- Checking in and engaging with your team (we’ll give you a phone to do this)





Not going to lie, it can be tricky at times. So a positive attitude, compassion and resilience is a must have and, if it does get tough, your team will have your back!





Our expectations:



- We will teach you new things and we expect you to be proactive, brave and learn new things

- We treat everyone with respect and value diversity and we expect you to do the same

- We want our customers receive flexible, individualised support and we expect you to work with us to ensure this happens!





You'll need:



- A Cert III or above in Individual Support, Community Services or a related field (Desirable but not essential)

- Previous support work experience (Desirable)

- A current driver’s licence and reliable vehicle

- Current NDIS Worker Screening check or willingness to obtain one

- Values that align with ours

- Excellent communication skills including verbal, written and listening

- Availability to attend training and team meetings during the week

- Ability to problem solve, think creatively and find innovative solutions

- Flexible availability to work a range of shifts during the week, overnight and occasional weekends (we’ll chat about this more in person)





Love a good perk or two?



- An hourly rate of between $21.58 and $29.30 per hour plus super and afternoon/evening shift loading, weekend penalties and all leave accruals

- If you have a Cert 3 or above you'll get $28.41 per hour!





- Option to Salary Package up to $18,550 to reduce taxable income

- A Mobile Phone to use for work

- Extra 2 days of leave for your wellbeing

- Pay for kilometres and time travelled between supports





Are you keen? Here’s the next steps:



- To apply, you can attach an updated resume and cover letter as one document OR ditch the paper and complete a 5 minute video answering a few questions instead!

- If you’re shortlisted, you’ll be invited to attend our Work with Us Workshop 

- Making an appointment to this position is subject to a satisfactory National Police Clearance





Last but not least, Avivo values a diverse workforce with different life experiences, skills and backgrounds including people with disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, LGBTQIA+ and people from all cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Please only apply if you match these values and don't hesitate to reach out if you need a hand with your application.
