The Victorian state government has mandated that all essential workers must have received all their Covid19 vaccinations including the booster. This is now an employment requirement for all staff who work in the disability sector and you will not be able to be interviewed or work with IOE without being fully vaccinated.
If you would like to gain experience in supporting people who have disabilities, volunteering is a way to learn more about the work that we do at IOE and make a great contribution to our community. We are always ready to welcome new volunteers. Please contact our volunteer coordinators to find out more about becoming a volunteer (Click here to see our volunteer opportunities).
