Aruma needs YOU (yes, you!)
At Aruma, we support people with disabilities to live great lives. It is the reason we exist – after all, why should anyone have to settle for anything less? To make this a reality, we rely on the skill and commitment of our Aruma team.
Our Aruma team are incredible people. We are bold, brave and courageous. We see possibilities where others may not. We stand up for the things that matter and stand together as a team. We are serious about human rights and have a knack for finding joy in life – even in the most unexpected places.
When you are part of the Aruma team, you support people, pioneer new paths, challenge assumptions, dare to think differently and tell society to raise the bar higher.
We are looking for likeminded people who have the same values. There is no specific ‘mould’, we need a team that is as diverse as our customers.
So, who is Aruma? We are glad you asked.
Aruma is a new name in disability services, but we are definitely not new. You might remember us as House with No Steps and The Tipping Foundation, two great organisations, with over 100 years of combined experience, who came together in 2018.
There are, however, a few boxes you will need to tick:
Be enthusiastic about supporting people with disabilities to live great lives. The lives they want and choose, putting the people we support first. That is non-negotiable.
Support our customers with daily household activities, preparation and assistance with meals, personal care, and social, recreational and community experiences that enhance quality of life, based on support plan goals.
