NDIS Support Coordinator

CoAbility
  • Rewarding role in a leading independent service provider
  • Collaborative, highly supportive remote team
  • Ongoing training and development

ABOUT THE ORGANISATION

CoAbility is a leading independent NDIS Support Coordination provider in Victoria.

We are a family-run, values-based organisation. Our team of over 40 passionate Support Coordinators and Specialist Support Coordinators are committed to delivering person-centred support and outcomes that make an invaluable impact on the lives of the people we serve.

The key to our success is our ability to make navigating the NDIS as stress-free as possible. By encouraging our clients to exercise their choice and control at every opportunity and our diligence in putting our clients first, we are able to create a truly tailored service achieving positive outcomes and reaching goals.

Importantly, in the current world environment, we have successfully set our team up as a fully remote workforce. Our team has always worked from home, only travelling to attend client meetings. This has transitioned to conducting all client and provider meetings remotely for the time being.

In particular, they will bring support coordination skills and stakeholder engagement ability and demonstrate an understanding of how best to access and maintain services for participants living with disabilities. This experience will be complemented by excellent report writing skills and a keen and dedicated commitment to supporting and improving outcomes for the people we serve.

You will work with participants, their informal support networks, and collaborate with community partner organisations in order to achieve the participant's goals.
