If you have a big heart and want to make a difference in people’s lives, a career in Home Care supporting seniors to live independently might be right for you. Jump the job queue and have the chance to land a role on the spot at our Employment Accelerator events.

This event may be for you if you already have a Certificate III or IV in Individual Support – Ageing or you’re just starting out and want to find out more about possible positions, on-the-job training and qualifications (some fee free).

You can meet local employers in person, cutting through the usual application process. If you don’t find a job on the day, you can share your details for future openings.
