Local organisation Caringa Australia is currently undertaking a major employment drive due to increased demand for disability support workers, particularly in the Lower Clarence.

And if you’re reliable, honest, trustworthy, and have plenty of empathy, integrity and compassion, and you’re searching for a job or possibly a career change, keep reading.

Chief Communications Officer Glen McClymont is encouraging local residents who are committed to completing or have already completed relevant studies, including individual support or community services qualifications and are dedicated to expanding their horizons and broadening their studies to apply and engage with their fellow community members in a rewarding and professional environment.

Upwards of 25 positions are currently available, with the high demand for disability support workers likely to lead to more employment opportunities in the Clarence Valley in the near future.

“It’s a pretty big deal for a local organisation like Caringa to be offering so many employment opportunities,” Mr McClymont said.

“Extensively, we’re looking to recruit employees in the Yamba area, but we’re also currently recruiting in Maclean and Grafton as well.

“We are being flexible in our recruitment in allowing people to come and talk to us and apply online via and we’re at the point where we need a lot more workers to respond to high demand in the local area.”

As a community focused local business, Caringa Australia provide support services to people with disabilities to enable them to achieve their goals in life through a caring and nurturing environment.

Their staff are driven by compassion and determination to help clients across a range of different aspects and with an increasing demand over the past 18 months, the time has come to add to their vibrant and supportive local team.

“The demand is there for support workers and there are plenty of opportunities for people who want to do something meaningful to apply and help make a positive difference within their local community,” Mr McClymont said.
