Depending on where you live, you may be required to get a state based screening, working with childrens check, or working with vulnerable people check.
To support people in Queensland you will need to hold the following, depending on the age group you support:
- If you are wanting to support people over 18 years of age, you will need to hold a Positive Exemption Notice (Yellow Card).
- If you are wanting to support someone under 18 years of age, you will need to hold a Blue Card for paid purposes.
- If you are wanting to support people under 18 as well as people over 18, you will need to hold both a Paid Blue Card and a Positive Exemption Notice (Yellow Card).
Both the Blue and Yellow cards are valid for 3 years. Registered police officers and teachers who hold an exemption card will have no expiry date. These checks will remain valid as long as the person is a registered police officer or teacher.
As you a paid casual employee of Hireup, we cannot accept a volunteer Blue or Yellow card.
As your employer, Hireup will provide you with the application forms for each card. If you need to apply for a blue or yellow card, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to start the process.
