NDIS Quality & Business Development Officer

Welcome to Lutheran Care. We are an energetic, forward thinking and values driven not for profit organisation, providing support to people who need it most.

Lutheran Care provides community services in South Australia and Northern Territory through a range of programs. We support communities through responding to the needs of individuals and families, community development, learning opportunities, accommodation and disability support. Current programs include emergency relief, financial counselling, family support and education, foster care, homelessness and housing and NDIS disability services. Lutheran Care is committed to reducing barriers encouraging inclusion and participation in the community of people all ages, genders, Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ) people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI), culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds and those with a disability.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) offers funding to people with a broad range of physical, intellectual and psychosocial impairments. Some of these people have complex challenges in their lives that reduce their capacity to utilise that funding in the best way possible. Elcies Disability Care (EDC) provides services to clients with a disability who are in receipt of an NDIS plan.

This is where you come in! 

The NDIS Quality & Business Development Officer plays a crucial role in ensuring compliance with NDIS regulations and standards, while also seeking to build new business opportunities and enhance relationships with external stakeholders.

In this role, you will:

  • Provide analysis, advice and operational policy in response to NDIS legislation updates.
  • Conduct reviews to ensure ongoing compliance with NDIS registration requirements.
  • Building connections and relationships with external NDIS services such as support coordinators and LACs to identify business opportunities and client pathways.

Essential Qualifications and Experience: 

  • Experience working within diverse NDIS teams.
  • Extensive understanding of the NDIS and disability sector
  • Ability to maintain up to date understanding of the changing environment of the NDIS and how this impacts on Elcies Disability Care.
  • Relevant degree, or formal qualifications with specialist skills and expertise to perform at this level.
  • Experience in program development and the development and implementation of policies and procedures.
