Share your story with carecareers

Have you come to be here unexpectedly? What path have you taken to get here?

You may have come across the True Stories section of our website – people sharing their own experiences in the community and disability care sector, whether that be changing careers, making the change from the corporate sector to a not-for-profit one, the diversity of roles they’ve had in the sector, or stories of teamwork.  

People come to the sector for a many number of reasons. Some of us fall into these roles and find our niche, others know sooner the paths they want to take. Everyone is different, and if I had to choose one thing that I have learned from the True Stories we have featured on carecareers, it is the diversity of roles that are out there. We have stories from support workers through to CEOs, but there are also stories from people working more unexpected positions – copywriter, program manager in accessibility at the Sydney Opera House, multimedia officer and events manager, just to name a few.
