Disability Advocate – Broken Hill
We are seeking a person to be the first locally based Disability Advocate in Broken Hill and the Far West of NSW.
Assist people with disabilities in Broken Hill and remote communities in the Far West of NSW with getting ready for the NDIS, NDIS Appeals and general advocacy support to ensure a fair go. The position will be co-located with the Far West Community Legal Centre in Broken Hill. The position has good pay and conditions including extra paid annual leave, a company AWD vehicle and support from an experienced team. We will consider a flexible shorter working week (paid pro-rata) but the position is advertised as full time.
Position details are located below. If interested and want to find out more ring 1300 365 085 (ask to speak to Mark or Darcy) or email HR@da.org.au with your details
We are always on the lookout for volunteers in the NSW regions we cover. Check out where our offices are located on the “contact us” page.
Over the years we have had an enthusiastic group of volunteers who have built DA into a well-known and respected service that assists people in a tangible way. Existing volunteers comment that they enjoy the friendly team atmosphere in the office, the support they receive from paid staff, the valuable experience they gain and access to training.
Most volunteers start work in a “front desk” role, answering the phone and being the first point of contact for people who use the service. Sometimes volunteers also help with administrative work and doing background research for advocates or sometimes “shadow” advocates to learn more about disability advocacy skills.
We encourage people with a disability to consider our volunteer roles. For some volunteers who have gone onto further training it has meant paid employment as an advocate with the service.
