NDIS Support Coordinator
Mornington - Full Time
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.
We have an exciting opportunity for a full time NDIS Support Coordinator to join our dynamic, growing team at our Mornington office. This position is full time, and is a fixed term contract to May 2019, with possible extension.
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 Coordinator will work with a case load of NDIS clients to commence and implement the supports in their unique NDIS plan.
We are looking for someone with a strong understanding of the needs of people living with severe and persistent mental illness and who also has a good 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. Qualifications in mental health, social work, or other allied health practice are highly regarded. Experience in a similar role is essential.
