About Care Finder

Care Finder is a Commonwealth Government funded program commissioned by Primary Health Tasmania. It aims to connect and engage older people who experience difficulty accessing aged care services. Care Finders provide one-on-one support for older Tasmanians to interact with My Aged Care and access aged care services and other supports in the community. Care Finders are based in each of Tasmania’s three major regions.

COTA Tasmania has been contracted as one of four providers of Care Finder services in Tasmania.

About the Role

Due to internal staff movements, COTA Tasmania’s Care Finder service is recruiting for an Intake Officer in our Hobart office. The Intake Officer will be a warm and engaging first point of contact and plays an important role connecting and triaging enquiries and referrals for older people accessing the Care Finder program.

If you have knowledge and experience of the aged care system; enjoy supporting others; can explain complex systems in a clear way for older Tasmanians; and want to work in a small (but organised and fun!) team, this could be your new role for 2024.
