Are you interested in more meaningful work and supporting people with a disability?
Are you sick of the endless commute to Sydney for the right type of role?
Then consider being an advocate and work side-by-side with people every day to support them through their journey of navigating legal and social systems to achieve fairer outcomes.
Disability Advocacy NSW provides advocacy for people with a disability. Our multi-disciplinary team includes social workers, community workers, disability workers, and lawyers. We pride ourselves on being trustworthy, honest, empathetic, and transparent in our work with people offering a family friendly and inclusive workplace, where diversity is celebrated.
Due to expansion of the Nepean Blue Mountains region we are seeking experienced and passionate people to join our growing team based in our Valley Heights office. This is an exciting time with increased funding, growth and expanding services.
In this role you will work with people with disability to address issues of unfairness occurring across various social systems including the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Education, Health, Centrelink, Housing, Discrimination, the Disability Royal Commission and other areas that impact on their lives.
We are looking for excellent communicators with sound judgement and influencing skills, who can collaborate with colleagues and other agencies while also being able to work independently. The successful candidate will be able to identify goals, problem solve and be tenacious in their work.
At peoplefusion we don’t just accept diversity and inclusion — we celebrate it! We strive to create an environment of equal opportunity regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, lifestyle, age, religion or physical ability, and welcome applications from people from all backgrounds. If you require any assistance with your application, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
