Aruma is looking for ‘people who put people first’ in Gisborne, Alexandra, Mildura, Swan Hill, Horsham and Echuca, to become Disability Support Workers.

The disability provider has roles up for grabs in these regions to work across various facilities including houses and service hubs.

Aruma’s Chief Operating Officer Laz Cotsios said the organisation was looking for a wide range of people across regional Victoria who may be new to the idea of working with people with a disability.

Maybe you’re looking for a career change or perhaps you’re looking for work in what continues to be a difficult environment brought on by COVID-19. Whatever your story, if you’ve got strong values, good energy and are seeking a rewarding career, these opportunities could be for you, Laz said.

These roles offer secure employment and on-the-job training with one of Australia’s largest disability providers. You can express yourself in your job by sharing personal interests and skills with the people you work with.

You’ll have flexibility to shape your working life around personal commitments like family, and there’s lots of career development opportunities and pathways to build your experience and keep challenging yourself.

Swan Hill-based Disability Support Worker Andrew Patterson (pictured below) has been helping people with a disability live a great life for nearly four years, finding no two days the same.

The customers are who I come to work for. I learn so much from them and we have a lot of fun going out to cafes and restaurants, going to the park for lunch, going fishing, attending the movies, bowling, cooking delicious meals at home and creating some beautiful artwork during group activities they might like to take part in, Andrew said.

Horsham-based Disability Support Worker Paula Pickering (pictured below) has worked in the area for more than 16 years, finding her work rewarding.

Before becoming a support worker, I was working in aged care, and I’ve never looked back. I can see the difference I’m making to help people live the life they choose, every day – it’s a great feeling that I’ve never been able to get from other jobs.
