Casual In-home Support Workers

Your future workplace

Since 1982 Sacred Heart Mission has been proactively supporting people in our community to find shelter, food and care. We recognise everybody is unique and provide tailored services every day of the year to people experiencing homelessness and disadvantage.

Your new role

Our Sacred Heart Local program supports people in the community through Home Care Packages (HCP) and National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) packages. Our clients are located in Darebin, Moreland, Whittlesea, Casey and the Greater Dandenong area.

  • Motivation to help people maintain their independence
  • A driver’s licence and access to your own car
  • A current first aid certificate including CPR
  • Experience with multiple and complex care needs (desirable)

If you have a relevant qualification e.g. Certificate III in Aged Care we may have additional shifts available to you.

Your day-to-day

A typical day will involve arriving at a client’s home and assisting them with shopping, meal preparation, self-care, cleaning and driving clients to various appointments. You’ll be facilitating daily living for our clients which is the key to maintaining their housing and independence.

You’ll be providing companionship to interesting people and may encounter clients with complexities, such as social isolation. Working independently, your strong alignment to the values of Sacred Heart Mission will drive you make a real difference to the lives of those we support.
