Disability Support Worker FAQs

You need to be in good physical health as you’ll be active while bending, lifting and transferring consumers. Please note you’ll receive ongoing training in workplace safety and in manual handling skills to move consumers safely.
You can be as flexible as you like for possible shifts in the early morning, evening, weekend work or overnight stays. It’s up to you to confirm your availability with us, but the more flexible and available you are the better.

We try to match you to clients as close as possible to your home, however, you might be expected to travel within reason, expect up to a 30 minute commute. You’re welcome to accept clients based in the locations you’re willing to visit. When we roster, we try to link multiple client shifts together to make the travel worthwhile for you.

A license would be considered favourably, as you may need to visit a number of clients around your area.

Certificate III in Disability, or Home and Community care (HACC) are desirable. 

The number of shifts is up to you. This will depend on the work available in your local area and your willingness to travel to work outside your local area. Support workers can work as few as 15 hours a week, or as many as 35 hours depending on their flexibility and needs.

To be eligible for a position at Nextt you must have an appropriate Australian or New Zealand work visa.
