There are a couple of things we need to mention about applying for internal positions:
We assess you against other external applicants for the position.
Our tried and trusted process of letting the client decide whether you are the right support worker for them always stands – clients make the final decision.
You won’t be considered for the position unless your documentation is up to date, that is:
You need a valid Police Check, DWES check, Working with Children’s Check (where you will be in direct contact with children as part of the role)
You will need an up to date First Aid and CPR certificate
You will have needed to provide all other outstanding mandatory training if you have any to do.
Your current roster with other clients must not clash with the requirements of the role (that is, shifts for the position you are applying for will never take precedent over any shifts that you currently have with other clients.) This would be simply unfair and irresponsible.
The process for applying for these positions is much easier once you are part of our payroll already however, all you need to do is submit your name, and tick the declaration box that you understand the above, and hit the submit button. An email notification will be sent to our recruitment team so that they are aware of your interest.
If you do have any questions regarding this, please feel free to email the recruitment team directly.
A variety of jobs will be available – for placement with clients with a disability or mental health concerns, as well as administrative positions from time to time.
You will need to keep in mind that your application will be assessed against other external applicants; that your roster must not clash with the required shifts for the role; and that you will need up-to-date documentation for your application to be considered. All you will need to do is enter your name and submit it to the Recruitment Team using the ‘submit’ button on the job posting. They will assess your current details to see whether you will be a suitable applicant for the role.
As always, LCS always leaves the final decision to employ someone for the program with the client and their support network.
Nerryn joined Lifestyle Centred Services Head Office team in October 2018 as a Guidedog in Training, living with our Operations Manager, Tarina Venturin.
Nerryn has become a staple of our every day here in Seaford, and enjoys greeting us every morning, one by one, snoozing under our desks and eating carrots!
Having Nerryn around has been a wonderful time for all of us at Head Office and she’s grown up so much since we first laid eyes on her as a 10 week old puppy.
Nerryn has been undergoing some rigorous training ready to be a guidedog for one very special owner when her time comes. We’re all a little sorry to say that we don’t think she’ll be with us for too much longer. Tarina especially is anticipating a very big change for her. Dogs just have the ability to grab you by your heart and never let go, but we hope she is just the first of many Guidedogs we can help train up ready for some very important work throughout their very special lives.
