Support Coordinator - Ballarat / Geelong

Aruma
  • Ballarat or Geelong based
  • Permanent Full Time
  • 38 hours per week

Aruma needs YOU (yes, you!)

At Aruma, we support people with disabilities to live great lives. It's the reason we exist - after all, why should anyone have to settle for anything less? And to make this a reality, we rely on the skill and commitment of our Aruma team.

Our Aruma team is an incredible bunch of people. They're bold, brave and courageous. They see possibilities where others may not. They stand up for the things that matter and stand together as a team. And while they're serious about human rights, they have a knack for finding joy in life - even in the most unexpected places.

When you're part of the Aruma team, you're not just supporting people. You're pioneering new paths, challenging assumptions, daring to think differently, and telling society to raise its bar much higher.

We're after people who have values similar to ours, but there's no specific 'mould' you need to fit (after all, we need a team that's as diverse as our customers!).

There are, however, a few boxes you'll need to tick:

Must haves…

Key Accountabilities:

  • Support the NDIS participant to assess a number of mainstream, community, informal and provider options
  • Select preferred options or providers
  • Negotiate services to be provided and their prices
  • Develop service agreements and create service bookings with preferred providers
  • Arrange for any assessments required to determine the nature and type of funding required (e.g. assessment to determine the type of complex home modifications required)
  • Determine the budget for each support type and advise any relevant plan manager of the breakdown of funds
  • Liaise with any plan manager to establish the appropriate claim categories and attribute the correct amount of funds
  • Link to mainstream or community services (i.e. housing, education, transport, health)
  • Strengthen and enhance participants capacity to coordinate supports, self direct and manage supports and participate in the community
  • Higher degree qualifications in disability or social work or equivalent preferred
  • Must hold a Current Victorian Drivers License

So, who is Aruma?

We're glad you asked! Aruma is a new name in disability services, but we're definitely not the new kids on the block. You might remember us as House with No Steps and The Tipping Foundation, two great organisations, with over 100 years of combined experience, who came together in 2018.

Our success depends on YOU. We'd love to hear your story.

If you are passionate about supporting people with disabilities to be active, inclusive participants in their communities and would like to work in a role that is both challenging and rewarding, we would love to hear from you.
