Melba values each and every
Melba Support Services is one of Victoria’s largest disability service providers. We make a difference by empowering people with a disability to live the life they want.
In Gippsland, we provide services to over 170 people across 20 homes and four short-stay accommodation services from Orbost to Wonthaggi, with our purpose-built regional office based in Morwell.
Where we are hiring
We have entry-level Support Worker roles available throughout Gippsland, with no experience needed. We have permanent, casual, and fixed-term roles available.
Support Workers help with daily tasks that enable people with a disability to live independently in their own homes or shared accommodation.
We also have experienced House Supervisors roles available, where formal qualifications are required.
Our services don’t stop because of COVID-19 – Melba is growing, and we have plenty of work. It’s one of the most meaningful jobs you can do; you can see the difference you make in every moment and day.
In Melba’s Supported Independent Living (SIL) service, we help with and supervise daily tasks that enable people with a disability to live independently in their own homes or shared accommodation.
We also have four Short Stay Accommodation Assistance (STAA) locations (previously called respite services). We support adults in Traralgon and Sale, and children in Warragul and Sale. This service helps supported people and their families by providing breaks from daily routines.
If you are thinking of relocating to Gippsland for this role, we may be able to support you, please contact us.

Having a father with a disability gave Vivian an early insight into how important the right support can be. “This job is what I always wanted to do.”
Two years into her career with Melba, Vivian is one happy camper.
“I feel like I’m included and get a lot of support from the other staff. “
Vivian, who was born in Kenya, now has her future mapped out with a management career in disabilities with Melba on the cards.
Every day is different but the fundamentals remain the same:
“I give my best so that the people I support can live how they want to live.”
But it’s not just the people Vivian supports that are benefitting. The decision to work in disabilities with Melba has paid dividends for her too:
“My life is better now.”
Scott Harrison, Disability Support Worker
A 27 year career as a self-employed boat mechanic is not a typical pathway to a job in disabilities. It started when Scott’s partner recommended the Upskill to Disability course at the Traralgon Neighbourhood Learning House.
Now he’s swapped outboard motors for a land-based role as a Disability Support Worker in a Melba Supported Independent Living home.
A new career wasn’t an easy decision for the 52 year old who admits he “sat on the fence” for a while before taking the plunge. Now though, he couldn’t be happier.
“I loved it from the start,” he says. “Every day I just want to be there.”
Scott notes that men, (particularly those over a certain age) are under-represented in disabilities. “It’s a bit of a leap of faith but just give it a go.”
“I can’t fault Melba. Help is always at your fingertips.”
So is Scott going back to his old career?
“These days I hate boats. I’m a people person. “
