If you truly want to make a difference to someone’s life, then IRIS is the workplace for you. IRIS has a range of jobs and careers that provide services to people with a disability, injury or health concern. At the heart of how we deliver our services, are our people. It is important that we find people who are passionate about making a difference, have a "can do" attitude and are willing to do what it takes – so that our clients can be the very best they can be.
The way we deliver our service to our clients is through a "person centred approach". This means we like to understand as much as possible about each person and what they want to achieve in their life. Working alongside people, together we determine their needs and goals, what is most important to them and how we can make the greatest difference.
We offer an extensive range of training courses throughout the year so we can deliver the very best service and achieve the very best outcomes, for our clients.
Working as a Support Worker
We work with over 2,000 people a year who have either a disability or health concern and who require support. If you would like a job caring for one of our clients, we would love to hear from you.
