Fundraising Administration Officer (Former Employee) – Hindmarsh SA – 3 July 2017
Enjoy working for people that highly value the local community. I had the opportunity to liaise with donors and people from all walks of life. I enjoyed maintaining the ThankQ database and gained rewarding feedback from my peers.
Community Aged care worker (Current Employee) – Elizabeth East SA – 7 June 2017
Job ok, working with elderly nice, you get to meet lovely people, take them shopping sometimes or help with meal preparations etc. Hours can be unpredictable and may get a lot of cancellations which mean you don't get paid for those hours lost
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Adelaide SA – 6 October 2016
Productive but a bit challenging. I have learned that If you work as a team you achieve a lot of good things than working alone. The people at Anglicare are so nice especially my team, they treat everyone with respect and support one another when in need. the hardest part of my internship was finding the zones, policy and desired characters for the housing site analysis. And the most enjoyable part of the is having free food and sacks.

community support worker mental health (Current Employee) – Holden Hill S.A – 25 April 2015
My typical day at work was to go out into the community and help people with high complex needs, this can include taking to case conferences, case management, Guardianship board meetings. Doing daily routines, harm minimization,
I enjoyed working in the community
It has become a very toxic work place over the last 3 months
a typical day would begin by sorting out the new arrival stuff and getting rid of anything that was gross or ripped. then you would go through all of the plate and dishware and see what was good to keep and what wasnt.
Community Support Worker (Former Employee) – Holden Hill, SA – 30 September 2014
A typical day at work was basically getting into work around 8am then once our Keyworkers allocated clients to us we would then call each client that we had for the day (up to 4 clients per day) and arrange with them what time we would or should come. We would then check the diary to see of any appointments with them and such. Grab their medication and money/cheques if we were taking them shopping. Typically we would be out for most of the day.
I learned alot working with Exceptional Needs and it was slightly different to my last job at The Salvation Army as in this job I was a Community Support Worker where I was out there in the Community every day including weekends. Where as my job role in Salvation Army was more Case Management so I was for the most part in the office. So being around these clients day in day out for the day, I was always learning new things.
Management and my co workers were all dedicated and caring people. It was a real pleasure working with each and every one of them as they all brought something different so I was always learning new things from them as well. If i had a query of some sort, there was always someone to help me out. I loved going to work.
The hardest part of this job was when we were in a scary situation with clients that suffered with poor mental health. This was hard because no matter how much you wanted to help them and let them know that we were there to help, they just couldnt see it. At times we were abused and many threats made towards us but i really appreciated our "no retreat" policy because no matter what we alwaysmore... went back, which at most times made them realize that we really did care. It was very difficult to see them suffering with such bad mental health and feeling helpless.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when we would be involved in success stories. It may just be someone didnt go to gaol or another person got to visit their children or someone moving into their new home. It was a pleasure to be involved in and being there supporting them in that moment of happiness for them. To know that you made someone laugh or smile was a good enough reason for me to get out of bed and go to work knowing that there was every possibility that that would happen again.less
