Job Description

Hi there, we're Five Good Friends, an approved aged care and registered NDIS service provider. Five Good Friends’ mission is to allow all Australians to live extraordinary lives in the homes and communities that they love.

We pride ourselves on providing our Members (customers) with more control, magic technology and exceptional service. This is why we’re invited back into their homes nationally over 25000 times a month!

But we can only do this with the support of our exceptional network of carers (we call Helpers).

At Five Good Friends, we provide a platform Helpers love, is easy to join and acts as a gateway to a great network of Members and fellow Helpers. We'll support you with everything you need to succeed as a sole trader on our platform.

Five Good Friends strives to form high quality, long-lasting connections between Members and their Helpers. Our Helpers are the magic that binds the network together.

We understand it is essential to wrap our arms around Helpers to ensure they feel supported and can focus on doing their best work. We genuinely value our Helpers and have a dedicated Helper support team providing guidance every step of the way.

From the moment you apply to join our platform we offer opportunities for ongoing learning and development to help grow your Member base.  We have brilliant technology that allows you to do the best work possible.

We want to create a place where people love what they do, feel valued, supported and in control. It needs to be just as magical for Helpers as it is for the Members receiving support.
