Who we are

HelpingMinds is a highly-regarded carer support and mental health services organisation, established over 40 years ago. Our compassionate team of staff and dedicated volunteers throughout the metro and regional areas, provide quality services and support to more than 10,000 children, youth, adults and families affected by mental illness every year.

The team

The NDIS supports people with a life-long and significant disability through an individualised plan. Our Individualised Services team at HelpingMinds specialise in supporting people with psychosocial disability. The NDIS aims to provide people with choice and control over how, when and where those supports are provided.

Who we are looking for:

As an Individualised Services Coordinator, you will have a strong understanding of the needs of people living with severe and persistent mental illness.

Ideally, you will also be familiar with the NDIS or related programs. You will use your skills to help guide people through the NDIS eligibility and planning process. It is anticipated that through this support, participants will nominate HelpingMinds to deliver their ongoing psychosocial supports. You will also attract clients who already have a plan but who are looking for a trusted service provider to deliver their supports.

In working with a client on their NDIS plan, you will be skilful at establishing a positive, collaborative relationship with clients and their support network, assisting them to identify, link with and coordinate supports, link with local communities, build their capacity, overcome barriers and achieve goals.

The successful incumbent will have experience in support coordination for people with complex needs.

As a minimum, a tertiary qualification in the relevant field of Psychology, Occupational Therapy, Social Work, Allied Health, Developmental Education, Social or Health Science will also be required.

Why HelpingMinds?

We are a value-driven organisation that encompasses the values of Hope, Collaboration, Trust, Integrity, and Respect to provide quality service. We welcome your individuality, your ideas, your passion and your drive. Our people focused culture and flexible approach will help you to succeed both professionally and personally.

You will be provided with leading technology to perform within your role and offered excellent salary packaging benefits. On top of standard leave entitlements, you will also receive an additional 2x Wellness Days per year to support your own mental health.
