St Anthony’s Family Care provides a range of innovative and creative services that support and care for children and families. We currently have a range of opportunities for Social Educators/Mentors to join our dynamic Disability Support team.
Our Disability Support Services provide families who have a child with a disability a break from their caring role and also provide children with positive and meaningful experiences with the aim of maximising their potential and connecting with their community – this is a service that is much more than ‘babysitting’!
Our workers need to engage children, help them to learn new skills, provide fun and innovative opportunities and think outside the square. This means that they can help to connect children and young people into their local community – all to achieve the most they can for the person.
The children we work with are really diverse, so we want staff to be diverse too! We encourage staff from a range of cultural backgrounds, a range of ages, and with a range of different experiences and interests! We require staff to have a passion for working with children to achieve positive outcomes and we need people who are also naturally active and connected in their own communities.
You will need to have a current drivers licence, although it is not essential to have your own car, and a valid Senior First Aid certificate. St Anthony’s will provide extensive on the job training and ongoing development opportunities.
