Employment Opportunities

Working for Beacon Support should be rewarding and fun.

We are here for the sole purpose of providing a great support and care service to people who live with a disability and those who are ageing and want to stay in their own homes. It’s about lifestyle and dignity. It’s important that a person feels valued and that they have a place in our community. Our staff are very important in this process. To us your attitude matters. If this sounds like you, we want you.

There are some prerequisites (industry standards) to employment as a support worker / carer, but none of it is insurmountable. You will need:

  • Criminal history screening. This will probably include Positive Notice Card for working with disabilities, Federal Police check for working with aged persons, and Blue Card for working with minors. The departments do charge a small fee.
  • First aid certificate. This may cost you anywhere between $95 and $150.

If you have a certificate in Aged Care, Community Care or Disability Care, you will be highly regarded, however your attitude is much more important than aptitude. Our education program is designed to equip you with many skills vital to providing a safe, professional and life enabling service.
