Healthcare Australia (HCA) is a National organisation that provides a number of direct and indirect (aka Agency) services to the Healthcare Sector. We are currently experiencing a HIGH demand for skilled Disability Support Workers to work with our host clients that deliver NDIS supports in Lismore and Northern NSW areas. 

HCA is highly regarded within the industry and we are a leading supplier of staffing services to Hospitals, aged care and community organisations throughout Australia, so the opportunities for our workforce is extensive.

  • This is a casual role.
  • Mixture of day shifts (AM/PM), Sleepovers, Awake duties and weekends are available- something to suit everyone’s availability.
  • Minimum shift engagement is 3 hours, with shifts typically between 3-8 hours in length.
  • Our staff predominately work in Residential type environments, (eg: SIL/SDA) however we also provide staff to support NDIS participants in their own home (daily living assistance) and in the community (Community access & engagement support)

 About you:

This role is diverse!  If successful, you will be given the opportunity to work with a variety of leading disability organisations, in a variety of support environments.  This is a great way to continue building your skills and professional networks. 

You are in control of your availability, so you nominate when you can work and we will try and match shifts to your skills and availability so you can achieve a REAL work/life balance!
