About the Role: We are seeking a compassionate and dedicated part time support worker to provide one-on-one assistance to a young lady with Autism in her own home.  This young lady does not communicate with words so the ideal candidate will have a patient and understanding demeanor, as well as a genuine passion for supporting individuals.

  • Collaborate effectively with a small team of support workers, maintaining clear communication and consistency in care provision.
  • Flexibility to work on a rotational basis, including sleep-in shifts as required.


  • Previous experience working with individuals with Autism or similar developmental disabilities preferred, but not essential.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to build rapport with the young lady and her family.
  • Patience, empathy, and a proactive approach to problem-solving.
  • Willingness to work flexible hours, including evenings, weekends, and sleep-ins.
  • Driving licence holders are preferred but not essential


  • Competitive salary and benefits package.
  • Ongoing training and professional development opportunities.
  • Opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the life of a young person with Autism.
  • Supportive work environment with a dedicated team.
