Aged care, disability support among the most in-demand jobs in Australia

A recent article by the SBS named nursing, childcare work, and disability and aged care work as some of the most in demand occupations in Australia. 

Ongoing shortages of Registered Nurses, the increase in demand for aged care workers due to an ageing population, and the recognition of the positive impacts of support workers on people’s lives mean that opportunities in support work are at an all-time high. 

If you are thinking of a career in support work, you can join Mable as an independent support worker. 

Mable is an online platform that connects older people needing support and people with disability, directly with support workers. 

Mable’s community of more than 15,000 independent support workers includes Registered Nurses, physiotherapists, aged care and disability support workers, speech therapists and occupational therapists, among others. 

If you have experience, expertise and qualifications for any of the above, you can connect with people looking for support, as an independent support worker on Mable. 

For example, if you are a Registered Nurse, you can provide personal care, medication management and wound care, among others. If you have a Cert III or IV in Disability (with two professional referees in the last five years), you can provide personal care, which includes showering, toileting, hoist and manual transfer, among others.
