About us

We're InLife. A not-for-profit disability support provider that specialises in working with people with frequent and complex support needs, including 24/7 assistance.

We build teams around every client, depending on each person's needs and preferences. We partner with people with any type of disability who want to live independently in the community (and we love to make that happen!). That's why our assistants are so important.

Our clients may have physical disability, acquired brain injury, neurological conditions, intellectual disability or autism. We're honoured that many of our clients rely solely on InLife for their essential support needs. Nobody else. Just us.

Our teams are based in Melbourne, Geelong and regional Victoria, including Benalla, Wangaratta, Stawell and Bendigo.

To do a great job, you'll need:

  • Good judgement and common sense, listening skills, a willingness to learn and a commitment to our values.
  • Experience in personal care (showering and dressing) assistance with domestic duties
  • Experience and skills supporting clients who can display behaviours of concern (BOC) would be an advantage but not essential
  • Experience supporting people with a physical disability including transfers/use of equipment and confidence in hoisting
  • Have great patience and be willing to put in the time and energy to build rapport with your client
  • Open to activities supporting clients with their hobbies like bike riding, playing musical instruments, exercise, arts and crafts, DIY projects and sightseeing
  • Experience in mental health would be an advantage but not essential
  • Enthusiasm and passion for supporting people with disabilities to live great lives. Commitment to working with a care team approach, including guidance from professionals. For example, supporting our clients to complete a regular physiotherapy program
  • Full drivers licence and be willing and comfortable with providing transport in your own vehicle sometimes (we reimburse you for costs)
  • Willing to work varied night shifts which includes sleepovers and active night shifts. We also need you to be able to commit to ongoing shifts, based on your availability.

Please note - when you apply you will receive an email asking you for some further details - please look out for it!
