About the role
More NDIS services are needed across Australia, particularly in regional, remote, rural, Aboriginal, and Torres Strait Islander communities. While NDIS providers may already operate in and around these areas, a greater diversity of services is required to meet the complex needs of people living with disability. CBB are well positioned to influence change in this space, but we need to grow our consulting team to make it happen. That’s where you come in.
As an NDIS Business Consultant, you will support not for profit organisations to develop or grow a sustainable NDIS business, or to improve the quality, efficiency, or viability of current services. Through your work, you’ll have the opportunity to work with providers all over Australia and, as a result, indirectly foster greater choice and control for NDIS participants. Your role will be engaging and dynamic – with an impact.
The nature of the work will vary according to client requirements; you may work solo to deliver projects, or collaborate with CBB’s in-house consulting team, who will provide support and serve as a sounding board when required. All projects will be subject to CBB’s quality assurance standards. Due to the nature of the role, please note that work is not guaranteed and is subject to demand.
Ideal candidates will be consultants who formerly held Executive or General Manager positions within NDIS-registered disability service providers. We are especially interested in hearing from contractors with a strong business skill set, robust financial acumen, and a detailed understanding of the operational and compliance realities of service provision under the NDIS.
CBB is an Adelaide-based organisation, but our consulting services are primarily delivered remotely to organisations all over Australia. As such, you will have flexibility around where you work from.
About the organisation
Supporting the not for profit sector is in our DNA. It’s where we came from, and it’s written into our constitution. Community Business Bureau (CBB) was established in 1995 as one of three entities arising from the restructure of the Spastic Centres of South Australia, alongside scosa and Cara.
Over the last 25 years, CBB has evolved into a unique organisation with a clear mission to build the capacity and sustainability of our sector through our salary packaging and business consulting services. This purpose is firmly embedded within our business model, making us a social enterprise. Our mission and impact are demonstrated through our Community Development Program, where we reinvest our surplus to fund grants, scholarships, and projects for the sector.
Nowadays, we support over 600 not for profit organisations Australia-wide to do better business. Each and every member of the CBB team is committed to providing cost-effective, responsive, and personalised service to the people and organisations that work hard to make a difference in our communities.
As a not for profit ourselves, we understand the opportunities and challenges facing our sector. We care about the sustainability of our fellow not for profits and the positive impact they create for the communities they serve. That is why, above all else, our focus is on providing quality services that make it easier for them to do business.
