Discover a rewarding career helping people with a disability

Having a job that allows you to help others and put a smile on someone's face is really inspiring. I enjoy that every day is different. The training is interesting and the refresher courses are beneficial to the work we do.

I have only been with HomeCare+ for 12 months after 28 years in the fire industry. Working here is not just a job. It's so rewarding to help people and make a difference. The training provided is high quality and Paula does an awesome job.

Stage 4: Apply online

When you have all the essential requirements to meet the minimum standards for the position, lodge an online application. Once your application has been lodged, the HR Department will get to work processing your application, assessing your knowledge and skills against the job requirements. The interview is a formal face to face meeting to get to know you. The interview questions are designed to give you and HomeCare+ an opportunity to assess your ability to handle the role of a Support Worker.

Stage 5: What happens next

All short listed applicants will be reference checked. A minimum of two (2) referees will be contacted by a member of the HR Department. A referee cannot be a relative or friend.

Successful progression through all five (5) stages of the recruitment process will see you advance to our next scheduled Pre-employment training.

I began with HomeCare+ more than 12 years ago. I love the rapport I have with clients. Sometimes we have a good laugh! One of the great things about working with HomeCare+ is choosing my hours. The flexibility is wonderful.
