Support Workers

How does Support Worker Central work? is designed to match individual/family and agency job postings with support worker profiles. Once a job posting is created the user can select "search for a support worker" to see a list of support worker profiles that match the job posting. Matches are listed on a page called "job posting match results".  The user can then select "contact this support worker" to send a message to the support worker's private Support Worker Central (SWC) mailbox.

Once a support worker creates a profile they can select "search job postings" to see a list of job postings that match their profile and can "contact this job posting's owner" to send a message to the private SWC mailbox of an individual/ family or to view the public contact information of an agency job posting owner. Not all job postings can be found in a search; some individuals/families choose to keep their job posting private and support workers will only see those job postings if the individual/family chooses to contact the support worker.


 The personal contact information that an individual/family used to register is not sent when they communicate about a job posting unless they choose to include it within their message or job posting.


The personal contact information that a support worker used to register is not sent when they communicate about a job posting unless they choose to include it within their message or support worker profile.


The contact information that an agency used to register is always sent with their message to a support worker; the agency may choose to send alternate contact information within their message. A support worker can choose to respond to an agency message by contacting the agency directly through the contact information provided, or continue contact through their private SWC mailbox.


Support workers can  "edit match criteria and search again" after performing a "search job postings" to use a search form that is populated with their support worker profile and temporarily change information to increase matches without changing their support worker profile. Support workers can also use the quick search form without changing their settings. Leaving all fields in the quick search form unchecked will return a list of all job postings. You can edit any criteria in the quick search to broaden or narrow the search.



Please be patient while the Support Worker Central website is populated with job postings. You can assist us by spreading the word about this website to potential support workers in your community.
