Resourceful Futures' Primary Job Profiles
Community Disability Worker
The CDW is an entry level, front line community disability role that has responsibility to support and facilitate the development of skills and competencies that will assist persons with disabilities to pursue and fulfill their goals, objectives and aspirations.
Community Disability Practitioner
The CDP is an experienced direct support role in the field, providing direct support to individual's with disabilities, as well as participating in assessment, person-centered planning, and plan implementation. While many of the core activities are similar to those of a Community Disability Services Worker, their application is typically relative to more complicated and/or specialized individual situations or environments. The role typically requires additional specialized education/training and more extensive experience to provide support in more complex circumstances, as well as cover a broader range of service and support options. In some cases, the Community Disability Practitioner will focus activities within a particular area of service/support and/or coordination of other less experience service providers, but without full supervisory responsibility.
Senior Community Disability Practitioner
The SCDP is an experienced direct support role in the field, providing direct support to individuals with complex needs. It requires similar education and training to the CDP position, but there is an added expectation to be able to work with virtually any client and their challenging behaviours. It requires a greater level of confidence and competence than the CDP position.
Residential Supports (Permitted Subcontractor)
This position is funded on a monthly fee for service under a contractual agreement and remuneration is based on experience, education and the ability to provide the required supports. This position requires that an Adult with Developmental Disabilities is cared for in your primary place of residence. The individual is responsible for paying room and board fees. You are typically not responsible for providing care from 9 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday, except for statutory holidays and/or whenever the individual is not attending programs during these hours.
NOTE: If you are applying to be a Permitted Subcontractor, please ensure your credentials are equivalent to a Community Disability Practitioner level.
The Team Leader role typically incorporates front-line supervisory functions and direct support/service responsibilities. It is designed in the career progression as a first step into broader operational and/or organizational leadership.
