Let’s talk about employer branding…. haven’t heard of it? Employer brand describes an employer’s reputation as a place of work and their employee value proposition, which is the offering provided by the organization in return for the skills, capabilities and experience the employees bring to the organisation.
When working as a Support Coordinator with Auscare Support, it’s not a traditional employee-employer relationship, we look at it more as a long-term mutually beneficial partnership.
An Independent Coordinator of Supports (ICOS) as we call them, is just that, ‘independent’. As a Support Coordinator with Auscare Support you operate as an independent contractor and align yourself alongside Auscare Support who will do the heavy lifting, by providing the big supports, such as marketing, compliance, training, learning and development, recruitment and much more. With the flexibility to work autonomously and the ability to support participants of your choosing, you can pick your hours of work to fit in with your lifestyle and family commitments.
We recently sat down with one of Auscare Support’s experienced Support Coordinators, Lija Taylor, to discuss her experience working as a ICOS with Auscare.
Auscare Support is actively working to become a first-class provider of Support Coordination services in Australia. We focus on providing continuous training and professional development to our Support Coordinators through our internal Support Coordination Coaches as well as partnering with training bodies such as DSC, the Support Coordination Academy, and My Spending Planner.
Auscare Support is at the forefront of raising the standards of Support Coordination in Australia, so we set high service standards and expect ICOS to take a proactive approach to their work. In return Auscare Support provide excellent renumeration and benefits that are important to our team’s needs.
