Description:

Make a real difference in your own community, every day

Enjoy balance and flexibility – part-time/casual opportunities (16-20hr/ftn)

Work with a local, supportive team

Do you want to go home at the end of your day knowing you’ve made a difference? Are you the kind of person who loves to have a chat, meet new people and build genuine connections? Do you want to improve the wellbeing of seniors in your own community? Join one of Queensland’s largest and most experienced not-for-profit aged care and home care providers at Carinity Home Care, and join a team that cares.

What’s a Lifestyle Carer?

We’re glad you asked! Our team of Lifestyle Carers deliver hands on, quality, individualised care and support that allows seniors to remain living at home, within their own community. Some days this might mean putting your domestic skills to use helping with cleaning, laundry or meal preparation, or assisting with dressing and personal care. Other days could see you providing social and wellbeing support, like transporting seniors to the shops, appointments or community activities.

Home care is far more than just cooking, cleaning and care. Our Carinity Lifestyle Carers have been known to accompany clients on bushwalks, enjoy vibrant conversation over coffee and plenty more. We’re here to help our clients enjoy the life and freedom they love, with a little support from us. No two days are the same!

Why Carinity?

Carinity has been caring for the Queensland community for over 70 years. You’ll be joining an organisation that’s truly committed to the wellbeing of seniors. As a not-for-profit organisation, we invest back into our community through our services that support vulnerable Australians through our schools, disability support, community centres and family and youth counselling programs.

Working for a not-for-profit organisation you have access to a range of salary packaging options, which means you pay less tax so there’s more in your pocket!

We also offer flexible arrangements to suit your life and commitments. A variety of shifts are available across seven days, so you can work when it suits you, such as around school hours.

You’ll have access to a wide range of support services, training, and career development opportunities.

What do I need for the role?

We'll provide the training! You don’t need any particular skills or experience to start working in the team. Once you’re onboard we’ll provide a full range of training, and support you in your Certificate III studies.

We will require you to have:

  • Current open Australian driver’s licence and access to a reliable vehicle
  • Current flu and COVID-19 vaccinations
  • NDIS Worker Screening Clearance (or willingness to obtain), or current National Police Check (issued before 1 Feb 2021)

Availability to work weekends and public holidays is preferred.

How do I apply?
