We are looking for a very special person to join our team, in helping a young man who has autism, develop his skills and participation at home and in the community.

We are looking for someone who is kind, flexible and conscientious, and with good boundaries, who can fit in easily in a home/family environment, as well as having initiative to develop and implement meaningful activities and opportunities. You need to be fit and strong to assist our son in doing things he loves, like surfing, cycling and bushwalking. He also loves music. Young-ish men – early to late 30-s – being closer to peers, are particularly encouraged to apply.

You need to have great character references – qualifications are not important – and to be 100% trustworthy, reliable, and responsible. You need to feel a calling for this kind of work. You can make a huge difference in his – and his family’s – life.

Living in or close to Mullumbimby is highly valued, as is a strong connection to the local community. You need to be settled here, and a drivers’ license is required. This position is for out of school hours: some early mornings, some days after school during the week, and some weekend work, as well as overnights. Some flexibility is required. During school holidays, you would be working about half the week, as well as going away with the family sometimes, during school holidays.

To apply, please email cavafy@outlook.com, providing relevant details, and telling us what you think you can bring to the position.
