  • Full Time, permanent contract
  • Location: Charlestown

About the role

The Team Leader will work in consultation with their Operations Manager to develop the NDIS service within their regions.

This role will provide leadership, practice development and coaching sessions to service delivery staff of the Me Well service and apply coaching and mentoring principles to provide instruction and guidance on practice issues to Support Coordinators.
