Jobs Available for NDIS Agency
Thursday, 20th September 2012 at 9:54 am

People with disability and people who work with them are being encouraged to express their interest in working for the National Disability Insurance Scheme Launch Transition Agency.

The NDIS Transition Agency is looking for people to fill a range of roles, including in management, leadership and finance as well as the roles of local area coordinators and customer service officers.

Expressions of interest are also being sought from people who have allied health qualifications who can help people with disability plan for their current and future needs.

The Minister for Disability Reform, Jenny Macklin, says the Government is particularly encouraging applications from people with disability or people who have worked with or supported people with disability to submit an expression of interest.

“This lived experience of disability will be an important part of delivering the scheme on the ground,” Macklin said. 

Agency positions will be available across all five launch locations and are expected to commence from early to mid-2013, with a small number starting in the coming weeks or months.

“The Agency will match people with the required skills and experience from the Expression of Interest list with vacant positions as they become available,” Macklin said.

The Federal Government will invest $1 billion in the first stage of a National Disability Insurance Scheme, which will start from July next year.

Around 20,000 people with disability, their families and carers living in launch sites in the ACT, South Australia, Tasmania, the Barwon region of Victoria and the Hunter in NSW are expected benefit from the first stage of the scheme.
