Specialist Support Coordinator

  • Permanent position
  • Part-time or full-time opportunity
  • Narre Warren location

Applications close: 26 November 2020

Do you have comprehensive experience in Support Coordination and an in-depth knowledge of the NDIS? Are you a qualified Social Worker, Psychologist or Allied Health professional who thrives working with consumers with highly complex needs? Are you ready to join a trusted, reputable and values driven organisation? If you answered a resounding YES, then this is the perfect role for you!

Due to continued growth and transformation, Windermere is seeking a Specialist Support Coordinator to join a highly skilled and dedicated team who are committed to providing high quality services and go above and beyond for our consumers to coordinate and implement the support they need.

About the role

As a Specialist Support Coordinator, you will play a pivotal role in supporting and empowering families and NDIS consumers living with highly complex needs to navigate the NDIS, identify goals and implement the NDIS plan, as well as strengthen their capacity and build their resilience to create lifelong networks and connections in order to access support and become – and remain – independent.

This consumer-facing position is usually a hybrid model of working remotely and within our head office in Narre Warren (if required). However, due to COVID-19 you will initially commence working remotely from home. Once restrictions are further relaxed, we will look to return to delivering services in the consumer’s natural settings (i.e. the consumers home).

Recognised as a flexible and family friendly organisation, this is a permanent part-time position working 30.4 hours per week (potential to move full-time).

About You

You will hold tertiary qualifications in Social Work, Psychology or Allied Health and hold a current registration with or be eligible to register with your professional association. Furthermore, you will have relevant knowledge of the NDIS principles and demonstrated experience in Support Coordination, as well as customer-centric risk assessment practises in identifying and managing complex needs.

Why Windermere?

Windermere aims to assist people with a disability to identify support that really matters most to them. As a registered service provider under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and with more than 20 years’ experience in providing services to Victorians living with disability or developmental delays, we understand the NDIS and how it may impact our consumers.

Windermere fosters a culture of flexibility, support and wellbeing. We have a wide range of workplace benefits including flexible work hours, gifted days off, rostered days off, Flexible Leave Scheme (50/52), 17.5% annual leave loading, study leave, generous salary packaging and the opportunity for professional development.
