A very good workplace
The workplace and managers are very good at their jobs but as a support worker there is limited contact. Support workers work at clients houses and the work varies from client to client. The pay is good but the shifts are only in short slots so it is hard to get up to full time hours.

Job Culture
Great stepping stone to other support work roles
Very good culture, extremely organised when it comes to rostering and ensuring all shifts are filled. Client-centred with great empathy for the challenges PSWs face. Skills training provided yearly. Would suit a nursing student or similar. Lots of learning opportunities.

Supposed to have six-monthly meetings amongst care team but only had one in the eighteen months I worked there. Living in a less populated area meant there was not a huge number of clients so eventually I had to get a second job, and limited options also meant I had to tolerate abuse from certain clients. Eventually decided to work solely for a different organisation as it serviced a larger range of disabilities over a broader geographical area.
Pros
Penalty rates, organisation has its own psychologist, flexible hours (set your own availability)
Cons
Short shifts and my supervisor was very difficult to get hold of.

Working in my current position has been a great learning experience, I have learnt many things since working within this position. I have learnt a vast deal on spinal injuries and have learnt many great skills as well, such as; bladder washouts, peg feeding, colostomy care, stoma site care, SPC care, trachea care, mouth suctioning, trachea catheter suctioning, passive exercising and chest physio. All of these skills now accompany the other skills that I have gained through uni and vocational placements.

A challenging work environment with a cohesive workforce.
I enjoy the fact that I provide support to all our workers, both administrative and field workers alike.
Our Support Workers provide outstanding services to clients in sometimes very challenging circumstances.

I believe SLA are leaders in their field in provision of support to people with Spinal Cord Injury.

I work amongst a very supportive HR team.
