How to join our team
You can submit your application for an advertised role or an expression of interest to become an Araluen Support Worker online via our Careers portal. Please include your resume with 2 referees and tell us a bit about yourself in a brief covering letter.
If you have any questions or would like to chat about available opportunities, you can call our friendly People & Culture team on Ph: 1300 020 625.
All employees, volunteers and students at Araluen must undertake a Working with Children Check, and an NDIS Support Worker Check. Support Workers must have a valid Drivers License and enter the organisation with valid First Aid certification (or be prepared to obtain it). Araluen has a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy that requires all staff to have had two initial vaccine doses and one booster.
What happens after I apply?
Araluen tries to shortlist candidates for interview within ten working days of the application deadline. If you have not heard from us within this timeframe, it is unlikely that your application will advance to interview stage. Due to the high volume of applications we generally receive, our managers are unable to give individual feedback to candidates who are not interviewed. We thank all applicants for their interest, time and effort. We encourage you to apply for future vacancies if you are not successful on first attempt.
If you are a student who’d like to complete work placement with us and gain valuable on-the-job experience, please apply via our Careers portal.
Attach your resume and tell us a little about yourself. We will get back to you if we have a suitable vacancy. If we cannot offer you a placement immediately, we may hold your information on file for up to 12 months incase of suitable future vacancies. Please let us know if you do not wish for us to keep your personal information.
