Community Engagement and Social Facilitator – 4 to 8 hours per week in Sturt

An opportunity for someone who thrives on building meaningful connections and having rich life experiences.

About Me

I am a woman in my 60s living with high support needs in the City of Marion in Adelaide and have recently embarked on a major life goal, to live in a home of my own. I am seeking the right person to work alongside me as I prepare for this move and establish myself in my new community.

I feel most alive when I am engaging with my community and love exploring all the great things the city has to offer. I enjoy music, live concerts, movies, singing, libraries, and books. I love visiting my family, eating out, shopping, and looking good. I also like to get away for a holiday now and then. Keeping in regular contact with my family who don’t live in Adelaide is very important to me.

About the Role

This role is ideal for someone who shares some of my interests, can assist me in exploring my local community, and can get excited about my journey to create a home for myself.  When not out exploring we’ll spend time at home relaxing, baking something delicious, enjoying music & movies or chatting with family on my tablet.

A successful applicant will be mature, patient, organised, reliable, motivating, insightful, a good communicator, enthusiastic and tech-savvy. They will enjoy the support of a close-knit team who make real my vision & goals for a good life.

There is some personal care and transferring involved when I go on holiday. Once I move, this will be a regular part of working with me.


The role will start at 4 to 8 hours per week depending on your availability. When I move into my new home I will require a significant increase in assistance, opening further opportunities to take on additional hours. Presently, 4-hour shifts are available on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

In general, I like to keep a regular schedule with shifts running from mid-morning to afternoon, but I appreciate flexibility from my team to work at other times, including evenings and weekends when interesting events are on around the city.

Currently, there aren’t regular overnight shifts, but this will be a requirement once I move.

Remuneration and Training

The role is paid at level 2.1 casual base rate: currently $40.26 per hour. Salary Packaging may become available as your role grows.

Community Living Project is one of a handful of organisations around the world that supports families leading change – and provides ongoing guidance, training and direction in self-directed support, social devaluation, and right-relationship.

Applications will close on September 10th however I will recruit before then if I find the right person.

All applicants must have or be willing to obtain

  • Driver’s Licence and reliable vehicle
  • A current NDIS worker check
  • Assist with Medication Training
  • Manual handling
  • First Aid Certificate
