NDIS offers Murray Bridge employment opportunities

  • Media release

Up to 15 jobs are available in the new Murray Bridge office of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in what will be a welcome economic boost to the area.

National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) South Australian trial site manager Meryl Zweck said the Murray Bridge office is expected to open early next year.

The new roles are in addition to the staff already working from the St Marys and Elizabeth offices.

“We are looking for people that are passionate about equality, their community and improving the lives of people with disability,” Ms Zweck said.

“The roles advertised cover a range of fields, including planning support, administration and finance,” she said.

“The Murray Bridge office will provide a local contact point for children and their families who have already joined the NDIS and those that apply to access it in future.”

Ms Zweck said the NDIS was progressing well in South Australia, with 1355 children having individualised disability support plans in place in the first year of the trial.

The trial site commenced operations on July 1 last year and is available for children aged 13 years and under.

“The staff at the new Murray Bridge office will play a key role in the NDIS trial and help inform how the scheme will rollout for children across Australia,” Ms Zweck said.

“Their work will make a real difference to the lives of children with disability and their families, particularly in the Murray Mallee, Mount Barker and the broader Adelaide Hills region,” she said.

“We need your local expertise and knowledge to make the NDIS the best it can be.”
