Full Time - Mornington
We have an exciting opportunity for a Full Time Specialist NDIS Support Coordinator to join our existing dynamic, dedicated & growing team on the Mornington Peninsula.
Based on the Mornington Peninsula, with offices in the Casey area and the outer Eastern suburbs, Mentis Assist provides support for people with diagnosed and enduring mental illness.
The NDIS supports people with an enduring disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday life, and gives people choice and control in how, when and where the supports in their plan are implemented. The Support Coordinators work with a case load of NDIS clients to commence and implement the necessary supports within their unique NDIS plan.
We are looking for a person who has a strong understanding of the needs of people living with severe and persistent mental illness and has working knowledge of the NDIS or similar programs such as PIR and PHaMs. Strong engagement skills and the ability to negotiate with multiple stakeholders such as health service providers, Local Area Coordinators, the NDIA, families and carers to ensure the clients’ choice and control, are required to be successful in this role. The ability to think innovatively and creatively to help clients achieve their NDIS plan goals is also required.
A degree in Social Work, Occupational Therapy, Psychology or other allied health practice with registration with either AASW or AHPRA is required. Experience in a similar role is essential.
