Watch why people love
working at Melba!
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. “
