Support Worker Mercy Community


Support Workers – we are putting together a new team!

  • We are looking to build a new team around our newest Participant based just 20 minutes south of Caloundra
  • Multiple shifts available around a 24/7 roster – permanent and casual staff required
  • Full training provided in positive behaviour support – learn new skills in best practice

We are currently looking to build a new team of Support Workers around our newest Participant, based just 20 mins south of Caloundra to help him live independently. A spirited 18-year-old man with passions in sport and aspirations to work towards representing Australia at the Special Olympics, he is looking for a team that will help him enjoy both outdoor activities as well as relaxing at home with some gaming or tv as well as assistance with daily living tasks.

The new team will receive full training in understanding his Care Plan and in what excellent positive behaviour support looks like in order to receive the right outcomes. As a support worker, your day may be a mixed bag of activity with some days physically exhausting, but with a fantastic team of like-minded people in place – everyone will be well-supported.

Responsibilities shall include:

  • Personal care
  • Assisting with daily living tasks to promote independent living
  • Community access and assistance with outdoor activites
  • Helping to build and maintain relationships or pursue any interests through accessing community activities, venues or services
  • Build and maintain meaningful work relationships with your Mercy family, wider services and other networks to collaboratively work together in the best interest of the person we support

Why choose Mercy?

We understand that finding the right organization and the right team is just as important as finding the right role. We look to finding people that work well together, not just those who have previous experience in the industry. We encourage anyone that has had any experience caring for, or assisting others personally or professional to apply, as it’s sometimes a case of what’s on the inside…. counts! Any experience working with individuals who have processing delays and have complex behaviours is an advantage.
