If so, then Inclusion Melbourne would like to hear from you.

We are seeking creative, well-organised people with natural leadership and strong teamwork skills to fill a fixed term full time maternity leave position with the possibility of becoming permanent. You will need to be highly adaptable, creative, easy going and an excellent communicator.  You will apply your enthusiasm, positivity and empathy as you work with people and their families to imagine and build better lives for people with intellectual disabilities.

At Inclusion Melbourne we have a vision for people with intellectual disabilities sharing the benefits of living in the broader community.  We want to give people the ability to feel comfortable in the community, recognise their contribution and to help the community welcome and build long-term relationships with them.

If you share this vision and you are a creative and well-organised person with natural leadership ability, we want to hear from you.

Do you want to help people achieve their dream life? Are you organised and reliable?  Qualifications or experience is not necessary; we care about your desire to deliver high quality support. We are looking for Disability Support Workers, who can support adults living with Intellectual Disabilities to access their communities.  We have an individualised approach to support, as we match our participants to employees;  building strong lasting relationships.
