Country Health SA has moved to a Consumer Directed Care model for the provision of aged care, disability and support services. This allows consumers to maintain greater control over their lives by allowing them to make choices about the services they receive and who delivers those services. As a Community Support Worker, you will provide services including personal care, cleaning, meal preparation, transport and social support to persons who are aged, frail or disabled and who wish to remain living in their own home with some assistance. You will work closely and collaboratively with the consumer, their family and other health professionals to provide quality outcomes and maintain consumer independence where possible. Make a real difference and feel like an important part of the community. Being part of Country Health SA means you will be supported both personally and professionally, can take advantage of education and training opportunities, will have access to flexible working hours and be part of an inter-professional approach to holistic health care.

Holding a current driver’s licence and with access to your own transport, you will need to be flexible, conscientious and empathetic and be able to work autonomously in the community. Demonstrating the ability to perform under limited direction, you will work well within a team environment and be able to communicate effectively with people from a diverse range of backgrounds. Along with a commitment to maintaining client confidentiality, you will display empathy towards the elderly and the disabled, and be willing to develop a positive rapport with clients and their families.

The South Australian public sector promotes diversity and flexible ways of working including part-time. Applicants are encouraged to discuss the flexible working arrangements for this role.

Appointment will be subject to a satisfactory Criminal History Check.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants are encouraged to apply.  Job Ref: 656752
